    Smoked Corned Beef

    Soaking in water is a personal taste choice , I like to get some of the salt out so I soak overnight .  I smoke fat side down on the grate for 1 hour then put it in a pan with the seasonings for the remainder of the smoke .

    My Son has this smoker and had similar problems , he contacted the Manufacture which I believe is Green Mountain and they got replacement parts to him real quick . Since then he has not had any issues and loves that rig !

    Pellet smoker - Brisket fat cap

    I always start with the Fat down for the 1st hour or so then flip for the remainder of the smoke . This seems to give me a more uniformed bark . IMHO ?

    Brisket...trying new things

    You have to get creative in competitions , I have been to a couple (not competing myself ) and like seeing all the generic bottles of rubs and spices that the competitors use hiding their secrets from everyone else !
