Hey guys, I just joined up the other day and I don't even have my smoker yet. My wife and kids bought me an electric smoker for Fathers Day. Well anyway, to make a long story short, my brother sent me home with a beef brisket. Am I crazy to do a brisket for my first try at smoking? Well just so happens I'm crazy enough to try it. I bought Jeff's Rub ans Sauce recipe yesterday figuring my first shot at smoking would be with ribs, but this brisket has made it's way to the front of the line. HELP... I have never even seen a brisket before today let alone cooked one. Will Jeff's rub work, or should I be looking for something else. Just put it on the scale and looks like it's about 5 pounds. Aly tips, tricks you may have will be greatly appreciated. Emile.
