My love for smoking meat has been significantly rekindled with the acquisition of a small offset smoker. It's not perfect yet (needs a door seal) but I'm getting the hang of it so I decided to grab a brisket and go for something a little more expensive and risky. It's a 10.25lb trimmed slab that I picked up for $2.99 so it seems I got a good deal for these days.
I seasoned her up last night, wrapped in cling wrap and stuck her in the fridge. Pulled her out at 5am, thin blue smoke by 6:45am.
