First smoke w/ Qview

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi all,


Doing my first smoke ever. I decided to jump in the smoking pool with both feet and do a brisket. **crosses fingers**




  1. 8.45 lb brisket.
  2. 235 degrees
  3. mesquite wood chips


At 5 1/2 hours IT of 188...




Slight trim on the  fat






In the smoker to begin cooking....

Good luck on your first smoke!  Looks like you are off to a great start.


That is a bright and shiny smoker you have there. The smoke taste of your food will only get better as the smoker gets seasoned.

You asked for them and so you got them.


So at just over 8 hours my IT ran from 201 to 205 and the brisket gave no resistance to the meat temperature probe.


Just before wrapping



Cooler time!



The smoker is no longer clean!




Now the wait and time to make my BBQ sauce.

Sorry about it being blurry. Dinner plate: Fresh from the oven bread, homemade baked beans, homemade BBQ sauce, corn on the cob and of course smoked brisket.

Yeah, no kidding.  Brisket is probably the last thing that that I'd recommend for someone to do on their first smoke.   Nice job Rivmage.

So how did it turn out ? From the pics it looks good, I cant believe you started with brisket for your first smoke way to go. You should have no trouble with ribs or pork buts. What kind of smoker is that?

The brisket turned out wonderful, moist, pull apart tender, I just wish it had a better smoke ring.  I owe the success to this forum and all the post on how to smoke a brisket.


My smoker is a Master Forge 31.9-in 800-Watt Electric Vertical Smoker from Lowes:|1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&facetInfo=
