Well the first smoking went great, I'll remember the pics next time. I brined the turkey breast as suggested and it was delicious. The ribs came out great but my brisket was a little tough. This is the second brisket I have ever cooked and I realize that there is an art to it. It was a 5 pound brisket and I cooked it for 10 1/2 hours. Any suggestions on how to make it perfect. I had used a marinade using red wine that I got of the site. The flavor was good but I wasnt impressed with the tenderness. Thanks for any suggestions, and yes I am officially addicted to smoking.

Temp stayed around 230 the whole time, I didnt use foil. The internal temp was 170 when the brisket was done. I had used a thermometer that stayed in the brisket from start to finish.

Might put some of your marinade in your foil wrap when you wrap it. Wouldn't hurt to double wrap if adding fluid to help prevent spills when removing from smoker.
