First Brisket, first smoke with new a-maze-n smoker

  1. Picked up a 10.3 lb. brisket at Wally World for $1.90/ lb. Hopefully all goes well with the new meat and smoker tray/ pellets.

    Started the trimming and removal of silver skin:

    Trimmed,  then I rubbed w/ montreal seasoning, ready for the MES set at 225 degrees F:[​IMG]

    Looks Good From Here

    Make sure you have that little flame dancing on top the pellets for 5-10 minutes, before you blow it out.  You really need a good bed of coals to keep it going.

    This is the most important part!!!

    Try pulling the chip pan out 1 1/2' and pulling the chip loader out 1/4 way, or about 2"

    Open the exhaust all the way.

    These little tricks seem to help with air flow in the MES.

    What temp you smoking at?

  3. I am smoking at 225 degrees.  
     
  4. About an hour in, I think the a-maze-n smoker will do just fine with the tips from Todd and some good old fashioned Boy Scout knowledge.[​IMG]

  10. The brisket came out really tasty and tender. The finished product had a nice bark and great flavor.  I used only a small amount of montreal seasoning and that was plenty. I'll surly be making more.  Thanks for the great support on this site.
