Yes I realize that. I just finished putting on the Lava Tape to try and seal leaks and hold heat better. We'll see how that works. Although it tasted okay I am not that fond of the Camp Chef brand hickory pellets. Next time I am trying Cooking Pellets Perfect Mix. I ordered theirs and also got a bag of their Hickory.

For the cook this is my notes: Started at 225 degrees high smoke. Yes I wrapped the brisket at 6 hours at the stall, wrapped it and cooked it 5 more hours until it hit 200 degrees internal. When I got the chicken and ribs off I cranked it up to 250 degrees with just the brisket on.

At 6 hours the chicken hit 170 degrees internal and I took it off. The pork loin was done at 150 degrees in 4 hours. The ribs I used the tried and true 3 hours on smoke, 2 hours wrapped and 1 hour unwrapped.

I might should have cooked the ribs a little longer before wrapping. I used Stubs to mop them because that is what I had. I also did not mop them the last hour. Not that pleased with Stubs this time. I should have used Sweet Baby Rays since I had that too. I'll be ordering some peach from SuckleBusters soon. I am out of that and that is the stuff on ribs.

All in all it was a success. Pretty pleased with how it turned out. :chef:

Just ordered a gallon of Sucklebusters Peach BBQ and a gallon of Sweet Texas Pecan rub. That rub sounds like just what I was looking for. Yum!

Which thickness and width tape did you choose?
Reason I ask is that I saw a youtube vid with a guy who did a before and after demo on his campchef with and without tape installed.
His still leaked like crazy but he did use the thick and wide version tape.

I used this one and it worked not perfectly but way better than before.
