  4. Hello fromy PA.. newbie smoker here. Just got a masterbuilt electric smoker and have a brisket in there as we speak. 6lb brisket set for 10 hrs. Been set at 225. Added chips the past 3 hrs. Any other recommendations will be helpful? Should I pull it out at 5 am and wrap it in foil?

    My first recommendation would be, "Don't smoke a Brisket by time---Get a wireless Digital Therm, and go by Internal Temp".

    Here's a lot of Step by Steps, including a Small Brisket Flat:

    I live in sinking spring which is outside reading. Not quite as small as where your moving but very close. From what I can see you will be a little over 3 hours and 45 minutes north west of me.

     When I first moved to PA, I lived and worked in Lancaster County. We went up to the Reading/Sinking Spring area on occasion. Nice area!. Emporium is MUCH more rural. Small town, surrounded by mountains reminiscent of 1950's America. Couple of Gas Stations, a Moose Lodge, a Shurfine Grocery, 5 Gun Shops and 8 various denomination Churches. Nearest Fast Food, Walmart and such is 20 miles south in St Mary's...JJ

    Sounds like ur getting back to real life. I don't mind berks county but sometimes I feel everyone is alwsys rushing around. Doesn't seem like your going to have that issue where your going
     
  11. Welcome, my daughter taught in ss elementary during college (kutztown) and would go back there in a heartbeat. Nice area with real nice people, she said.
