I live in Billings MT and am new to smoking. Found site while I was looking for smoking recipes. I smoked a venison roast last weekend as my first attempt at smoking. It was "ok". I used a store bought beef rub and Mesquite wood chips. I want to smoke a brisket for Christmas dinner and am really looking for advice. I have a small electric smoker.

jon, let me be the first to welcome you. i am a newbie myself, and have learned alot since i have been here. have you checked out the beef section? there is alot of brisket threads there- i have two threads there myself. these guys (and gals) are really helpful, and will share their knowledge with you. i am sure one of the more experienced ones will be by here soon, with great tips.
have you taken jeff's 5-day course? i did, and it is excellent.
