This is my first time smoking a brisket (hurray!). I'll be starting the smoke tomorrow night (Saturday) to be ready for lunch while the Texans stomp all over the Jags (sorry, Jacksonville fans). When I bought my brisket tonight I knew I'd be running into a problem with finding a brisket small enough to fit in my ECB, but I didn't think it would be as much of a problem as it actually was. I went to three stores before I found a brisket small enough to fit (10.7lbs) and this one will just barely make the cut. So my question is, for future reference, is there a secret to finding the right piece of meat that will work on this Brinkmann or am I just out of luck and and really need to purchase a larger smoker? Thanks!
