What would I need to do to smoke briskets overnight without tending it all night. I know have someone else do it but .... electric is out of the question, propane could be introduced after the smoking How would that work Anyone do this.

A UDS or a WSM are pretty good for overnighters and about the closest you will get to set and forget, other than a pellet pooper.
I haven't tried cooking a large cut on my gasser. You will still have to babysit the chip tray.

feedsack, do you have any kind of a smoker now or are you looking for advice of something to buy that would work for you?
As for finishing with propane heat, yes that would work. Many people smoke a brisket for 4-5 hours then finish it in the oven.

Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS) -- a do-it-yourself project that starts with a 55 gallon drum that you mount racks in. It requires no welding. ~$50 depending on materials.

Weber Smokey Mountain (WSM) -- $299 for the 18.5" or $399 for the 22".

Both are set-it-and-forget-it with charcoal + wood, once you figure out how to use them. Some folks have run a WSM or UDS for 8 hours unattended and temperature stayed put. Google "minion method".

My Stumps does a pretty good job of going all night unattended, if you're looking for another charcoal option.

Heres another vote for UDS. I did one last weekend and it worked out great!
Just practice your temp control a few times before you do an unattended overnight cook. I found that my UDS likes to creep up on the temp a few hours into the cook if I am not paying attention.

My friend has a gas smoker and does multi-day smokes with no problems (other than it's a gasser, hehe) Large tank, well insulated pit, just need to add wood for smoke. As close to set it and forget it as you can get.

I got a Masterbuilt 7-in-1 for about $140 at Gander Mountain. All I have used it for is propane and it has turned out some tasty brisket (2 at a time on occasion), chicken, and ribs. You can do charcoal with it, but the charcoal bowl and access door are small. The down side to it is that a whole brisket doesn't fit too easily, propane here is about $20 for a refill (20 lb.), and the temperature fluxuates a lot during colder months due to thin material. Also, when it is windy, you have to make sure your burner doesn't blow out. The reason I got it was that it was cheap and easy. Now that I have an idea what's going on, I'm ready to take on charcoal, which has led me to start a UDS project.

Just my experience. Hope it helps Smile

i have a green egg and its set and forget, especially with a bbq guru temp control. you can smoke at least 18 hours at a stretch without tending it on a full firebox using a good lump like humphreys or wicked good.
of course it costs alot more than a uds or wsm .
