Rancher charcoal is a very good choice if you can find it. They also package their charcoal for Trader Joes. $6.99 for a 18 pound bag. Looks like you have a Trader Joes nearby.

8 hours is ridiculously fast for a brisket to be fork tender, IMO, unless you're steaming or braising it. I'm usually up in the 12-18 hour range if I want it to be on the tender side.

This was made for cold smoking. I use it in my Bradley OBS with no heat turned on. The temp of the box only got to 70 degrees with the top vent wide open. I was cold smoking cheese.

Anyone had success with this? I've never really tried keeping it under BBQ temps, and of course we all know the WSM loves to hold 225-275° F all day long.
