I've always loved to cook, this is my first attempt at doing something more than soaks, rubs and marinades (on the gas grill). I've had a Weber charcoal grill but never smoked on it.
I live in Buffalo Grove, IL which is north of Chicago. I have a Masterbuilt 411 and am totally intimidated by this process.
I'm hoping I can get good practices and instructions so I can actually learn how to do this...
My goal is a brisket (like the kind I tried when I was in Austin and got me hooked).
