I will be smoking a 12 pound brisket on my recteq 1250. Where do you recommend I place it for the duration of the smoke? I believe if I place it right in the middle it will cook unevenly since the burner is located there.

You'll be fine. Just toss it in and go. Don't spend so much time thinking about it. You don't think about your hot spots in your oven, do you?

The smoker is the same thing. Going to have highs and lows. The meat is going to cook. Too many people stress over this high and low spot. Again YOULL BE FINE and the meat WILL BE FINE. Enjoy the process and worry about other stuff.. Cheers

I have done my briskets towards the right side. I put the point end near the smoke stack. While I do this mostly to have room for other items that I will put in the smoker to maximize my cook time I have found my briskets come out amazing. A 14 pound one completed yesterday was the first food item to completely disappear at a small gathering last night. Talk about rave reviews!!!
