Hey guys, Im back, I think the last time I posted was way back around 2009. Life got hairy so I haven't been paying my respects to the smoker. But I will say things are looking up. Last Sunday I smoked a small brisket, really just a point. I think it was maybe 3 pounds. Never had done one and wanted to get my feet wet... It was ok. I sliced it paper thin.. the next day it made a killer sandwich. So now I have another in the smoker as I type. Its a 14 pounder. I had to cut it in half in order for it to fit. In the pic below I have it in a 3.5 gallon food container. The kind they use in food business. You can get them at Sams club, comes with a lid. Anyways, I coated it with my favorite home made rub and put it on at 9 pm.
