New member from Washington state to this site but I have been smoking about 8 years now. I am still a novice compared to most as I usually smoke jerky and fresh salmon, I also smoke steaks and pork ribs through the year.
Wife is not a fan of fat or what she refers to as "icky flavor pockets", so I have not done any brisket before.
Found this site while looking for a new jerky recipe, made it up and currently have 7.5 lbs in a marinade.
Anyway, looking forward to expanding my knowledge here.
Oh yeah, currently have a Pit Boss pellet smoker, just replaced the Transfer smoker I bought back in
Welcome to the site John, you can still do a brisket and keep your wife happy. The flat doesn't really have the icky flavor pockets.

Thanks everyone.
Chris, I might just have to try a brisket anyway, they are delicious.

When I do a rib roast she puts a couple cereal boxes around my plate so she doesn't have to see the fat on the edge, lol.

Welcome from Mississippi! Post up your cooks and pics. And we don’t mind looking at the “icky fat”!
