13 pound brisket on my XL BGE. Using the Adapt-a-Damper, stock PID and Fan. Weather here is warm - 76 when I put it on this morning at 5:20, 84 now, about 7.5 hours in. 67% humidity, Light breeze today.
I'm planning to wrap in about a half hour.

Just pulled it after 10 hours with internal flat temp 203, point 201. Feels good through the paper - I've got it resting now and will slice when it cools to about 145. New servo seems to work great!Adapt-a-Damper seems to be doing the job. Any more issues with Servo?
Nice! Gotta love the flat line temps that the HM does for an insulated Gravity Feed. I'm going out next week to buy some square tubing to start building my Double Pan.
Yeah, probably need a 15 CFM. I use one on my mini, and get's to temp in 10 minutes, and stays within 1 degree for entire cook. I don't use servo, but use the 15 CFM AA ( servo disconnected) and close down the damper to about 25% when the temp gets to 30 degrees below set.nI cranked up the temp this morning around 0800 when I put the beans in. Meat came off when the 2 probe temps went up, they're now just hanging down around the flue. The beans will stay in until almost dinner, and I'm about ready to start on mac & cheese to throw in the smoker for an hour or so.
I've figured out that I only have a 5.7 CFM fan on this...... gonna have a buddy of mine print up a new assembly for a 15 CFM fan. The small fan works, but is rather less than optimal during startup and a few other situations.
Nice! Is that a 1” from the fan down to a 1/2” into the smoker?
Link's not working.Got my new table finished and won a very unique aluma-damper from the generous raffle of WBegg!
I have a little shelf in the cabinet area for my heatermeter that should be prety well protected from the elements with a simple on/off toggle that let's me turn it all on/off quickly (push button to close the damper as well).
Cooking a 12lb pork picnic shoulder for tomorrow!
