I am a BBQ lover as I'm sure many of you are (why else would we all belong to the same support group?). I think some would consider me a fiend. I once had a 4 day business trip that took me from Texas to Alabama, that's 12 meals, each of my meals contained some great southern BBQ. I ate it cold for breakfast, had a single choice platter for lunch, and the triple choice for dinner polished off with a slice of Icebox pie when I could get it. The one constant across all of my meals was Brisket. I love me some good,smoked brisket. Which led me to where I am today: I'm on the horizon of getting my smoker all setup and ready to chase that sweet, sweet taste of smoked meat. I plan to smoke some ribs as my first go and maybe a butt. But I want Brisket and I want it now. I may forgo smoking the pork and try to round the bases and smoke a brisket first. Would I be making a mistake?
