Today I smoked my first brisket in my trusty 22.5" Weber. I was a little worried since I don't actually have a decent grill thermometer for this one, but I managed to track the temperature using the hand trick I read about in Weber's Charcoal Grilling. I think I did a pretty good job, the brisket was delicious. The brisket was about 5.5 pounds and took about 5.5 hours. I don't have any before pictures, but yesterday I rubbed the brisket down with a mixture of salt, paprika, brown sugar, and chili powder.
Here is the finished product:

Tonight's dinner! Also made some homemade BBQ sauce.
