hi, I put a rub on the brisket this morning...thursday....i am smoking it saturday... a friend gave me a bag of wood mesquite chunks.. i have been using the chips... is there anything different about using the bigger chunks? do i put only a few in at a time? My smoker is the weber that i put a hotplate in and the wood goes on a pie tin... so far i have smoked a salmon, porkbutt, and turkey(cut up)..they turned out great! I am going to pull the meat for sandwiches on buns for dinner... what would be a good side to go with it besides coleslaw? thanks for any suggestions!! I love this site!!!
