Well I just arrived back home from the store again and I've got another "Brisket" and I'm starting to fix up a marinade and put both in the refrigerator overnight and start in the wee hours in the morning. I made up a "marinade" and "Rub" that I got from the Jeff on his "ebasic course."

I just decided that if I had to make one for someone else, I might as well make one for myself too and I used the info I got from the short course and from some of stuff that you guys have put out and I'm anxious to see what happens.

... if you'r peeking, you aint cooking! lol


Once you get to where you trust your smoker and your abilities with maintaining temps it will get a lot easier to not peek. With my WSM now I light it and once it is up an running I walk away..... to the couch, with a cold beer, a bag of chips, the dog, and a game on the TV

Hogrider,one of the main ingredients of Smoking is "PATIENCE"

Let the heat get to temp.,put the Ribs in and sit back and sip a cool one

You may want to have a 'D-C'(designated cook);if your parties are like the ones my son and I have,you'll need one or a lot of meat will be a little toasty.(I say that from your screen name and past experience)LOL


Have fun and,

I spent all day and late into the evening but they both came out great. I kept the smoker between 200* and 215*. I'm going to try a pork loin next and maybe a couple racks of rib's, any suggestions for them for a first timer? Here are a couple pictures of my brisket's, the family loved them and man what a relief, I was sweatin it just a little.

frankiebones - I'm jealous!  I have tried 4 times now and still can't get them to turn out right.  Did the same thing basically.  followed the 3-2-1 method and they turned out like leather.  Looked great but dry and hard.  I couldn't eat them, but had some buddies over that night and after enough beers, one of the guys ate them!
