    My name is Lisa, I bought my husband two smokers about a month ago.  One is a Char Broil, and one is a Masterbuilt electric smoker.  We just moved back to WV from SC about 3 years ago, and he misses the pulled pork from that area so much, I thought I would create for him.  He loves the vinegar based kind.

    We have bought the recipes for the rib rub, and bbq sauce, and love them.  We are now wanting to learn to smoke a brisket.  My only question is where do I get them?  I have tried 3 stores here and all they have is corned beef brisket.  Is it ok to use that?  My fear was the salt content in it.  I wasn't sure if it was the right kind. 

    So far every recipe I have tried on here is amazing!  I am looking forward to trying a turkey this week. I look forward to learning how to navigate through this site, and getting into all you have to offer for us on our smoking advertures!

    I find them at Sam's Club.  Though the last time I went they only had flat cuts. If you don't have a Sam's club, make friends with the guy in the white coat behind the meat case at your grocery store. I'll bet he can order some for just takes a little bit more pre-planning.  Happy hunting.  -- Addison

    Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.

    This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

    Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.

    We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
    this is the place. 

    Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

    Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  

    Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.

    Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa

    Interesting.  Costco only had the flat cuts too the last time I went.
