    It looks like this is where we start, so here goes! I'm in San Antonio and trying to get this right! I spent alot of time on the lake growing up and someone always had a pit going, but I never bothered to take an interest in learning how it was done. Now I have a 5 yr and 4 mo old boys and want to provide the same memories for them!

    So I bought a smoker last year and I've done about 8 briskets that all came out tough. I've done some reading here and I will start a thread with what I think I've learned but wanted to introduce myself and say hi!

    welcome to the SMF, look around for brisket marinades, my briskets started to get a whole lot better after I found the mop/marinade I like in Paul Kirks book.

    Welcome to SMF! Time and temp are biggies on a brisket; got to give it time to break down and get tender. Lots of good tips on this site!
