Hi everybody,

I'm a first time smoker from Nottingham England. I have just purchased a cheap Landmann offset smoker.
So far I have only smoked a couple of racks of ribs and they were the best thing my wife and I have ever eaten.

I have already got so much help from this forum whilst modifying my smoker thank you.
I can't wait to get smoking again, this Saturday is going to be the first time cooking for a few friends hoping for a repeat of the great ribs and possibly some brisket or pork butt.

Paul, for your second cook, I would
Leave the Brisket alone.

Have a go at the Pork Butt. Remember do not try and rush it, it could take up to 16 hours depending on size!

I'm in Cotgrave.
Is Brisket really difficult? What can go wrong?

I'm up on Sutton In Ashfield.

Is Brisket difficult? It's not the easiest think to cook, especially if you are still learning how your smoker performs.

Although I think A,B and C appear to be the same.
