    Just began smoking a year ago. My wife and I decided to start a family last year and a friend of mine gave me a Landmann Black Dog offset smoker as a baby gift. It has proven to be a great hobby if you have a family (not like golf).

    I have gotten raves for my smoked pulled pork (which is actually Alton Brown's from the Food Network.) I am working on my brisket and I am trying out Jeff Phillip's recipe from the October newsletter. The first couple of briskets were unedible.

    I look forward to learning from you all. Thanks.

    Hia Glitch! Welcome to SMF and congrats on the two new life aventures...Kids and smoking LOL!

    Check the SmokieOkie sear method for brisket. And when I hear "inedible" it makes me think it was not done yet... what was the internal temp of the meat when you removed it?

    You will need a digital thermo- probably two of them to get things dialed in.

    Here's the sear method post...

    I tried the sear method today. It worked perfectly.

    You were right about not cooking the first brisket long enough.

    Now I need to work on my rub.
