Loneleigh welcome to SMF from another Nortern Californian. I will put you on our party list. Please go to "Great American BBQ" in Alameda Calif and try some of Harry Stewart's awesome brisket. He is on High Street about 50 yards into Alameda from the High Street Bridge. Tell him that an ugly old chuck wagon cook sent you. He will also be a good mentor to ask questions. Harry is the real deal and has no secrets.
