Good morning everyone. I am going to smoke a brisket Tomarrow morning. I can use all the advice you got never done brisket before.. I do have one question? I am using a Charbroil stand up smoker with water tray. What is the best temp for this and also, I don't know how much charcoal to use so latley the temp gets up over 300 degrees if my temp gets up high can I put the meat in and let it come down or should I use less charcoal so the temp stays lower HELP. I also would love any recipe hints Thank you Thank you !!!!!!!
