    Than to cook myself a 13 pound brisket on Valentine's Day?

    We're actually having people over tonight and I haven't done anything in my wood smoker in a while. I've also been craving brisket.

    Here's some pictures from the start of the morning. I like to cook at 300 and this will be done in about 9 hours, I hope. I'll also be throwing on a rack of baby backs and some beans later on.


  2. It looks like your off to a good start. Remember to keep the pics coming and the lid closed.

    Happy smoken.

    I open a can of Busch's and put it in an aluminum loaf tray.

    I haven't tried my hand at making beans from scratch yet. My parents might come visit in April and if they do my dad will give me the 101 on bean making
  8. Looking good so far.

    Happy smoken.

    I ended up taking the bacon off once it got a nice crust on it and then I just chopped it up and fried it up on the stove.

    Ribs just went on and the brisket is looking good. I normally wrap the brisket at some point but I'm gonna see how long I can hold off and then just wrap it once I take it off for the rest.

    I decided to wrap the brisket to keep it from charring up since I'm going smooth at about 315. I also just wrapped the ribs, but I used butcher paper instead of the usual foil.

    Everything's coming along well. I'll put the beans on in a half hour. [​IMG]
  13. Very nice! I need to give butcher paper a try and definitely your hot and fast method.
