    That is a very nice smoke you have going on there. I can't wait to see things as they progress.
    Really nice briskets too. Wish I could get cuts like a lot of people on here do, but Jersey-people don't generally like to smoke around here.
    Anyways, good luck with everything, I'll be checking back to drool.

    Looks fantastic. I think Im going shopping for a brisket today thanks to you. And I really like the smoker. It looks like it turned three briskets into four. I wish My smoker could do that...

    Here are some more pics. The event went great and the people were very happy. I got a good tip from someone there. I noticed that the smaller briskets came out a little dry I guess its because it didnt have that much fat. I know under all the fat was almost pulling but the flat was dry. Chicken was good and pink.

    Sure looks good.

    I'm cooking for 40 this Saturday. The group will be a mix of men/women/few kids. Would you, or someone, mind giving me an estimate of how much food to buy/prepare? I have 3 untrimmed briskets, totalling 38 lbs. I have 6 lbs of sausage. I'm thinking this will be plenty of meat. What do you think? I need some help with the sides though. How many lbs of dried pinto beans should I buy? And how many lbs of potatoes should I buy for potato salad? And last, how many cabbage heads do I need for coleslaw?

    I'm not new to cooking, and smoking meat. But I've never cooked for this many.

    Well for 40 people You got more meat then they will eat. Unless you are going to let them take it home that is. IMO about a 1/4 lb per person unless you have some big eaters then go up to 1/2 lb. As for the beans, potatoes, about the same. Cabbage can be tricky, but I would guess 3 to 4 easy.

    I hope that helps a little.
