Hey everyone! New member here from Chattanooga, TN. I bought my first smoker a little over a year ago. It's an Oklahoma Joe Highland.
The night I brought her home

I looked at several other smokers and read lots of reviews needle picking this one. The first thing I did was a high temp burn in. Took it all the way up to about 500°, then brought it back down to about 300°, rubbed the inside of main chamber with vegitable oil and let it smoke for about 5 hours with hickory to let it season.
After that the only thing I've done with it is grill until today. I finally smoked my first piece of meat, A small 3.2 lb brisket. Full report on that will be posted later.

Anyway I've lurked here and read a few posts since I got my smoker. Figured I'd go ahead and sign up and introduce myself.

Welcome to the site!  A 3.2 pound brisket might be difficult.  It could dry out if the smoker gets too hot.  Best of luck.

Nice smoke!  I would bet that it was a little dry from under cooking.  You pulled it at 175, that is a bit low for breaking down the connective tissue.  When this melts, it produces a juicy briskey!  Points on that first smoke!
