Is there another cut of beef I can try for my first beef smoke. I did some Chix last weekend and I have some chix breast to do tomorrow, but really want to try a hunk of beef the only brisket I found looks nothing like I see on here they were only about 2.5lbs. Where can i find good brisket.

Don't know where you are shorty, but try the closest meat packing plant. You might have to buy it by the case, but that still will only run you $100-120 for about 7-9 briskets depending on the price, and you can always freeze them!

what other cut of beef besides ribs can I try for a smoke? my Dads buddy owns a meat market here in Johnstown PA. He may be able to get me a brisket but I just bought a side of beef and have all kinds of raost in the freezer just not sure which one to use.

I was just looking at a sale today on chuck roasts (pot roast) the kind ur mom used to slow cook all day and fall apart, i would imagine one rubbed down and smoked to like 195* and shreaded would be awesome!!

I have done a few chuck roasts and top round and both are good to smoke. I rub them down good, pull them at 160 and wrap them in foil and let them sit for a couple hours in my cooler. I've always sliced mine and they are nice and juicy this way. I'm sure they would be good if you smoked one to a higher temp and shredded it also.
