My first brisket this weekend, couple questions.

  1. I'm Smokin' my first brisket this weekend on my MES 40.

    Got a 10.5# and I'm gonna start it the night before, so its ready for Mothers Day dinner.

    My main question is how long should I keep adding wood chips? (mesquite, dad's request from when he lives in TX)

    I"m gonna wrap it in foil when it gets to 165* then unwrap it when it gets to 190* pull it at 200* wrap/rest in a cooler.

    Welcome to SMF Cramer,

    I would suggest goin over to (roll call) and introduce yourself, and your equipment.

    It will give us a better idea of what kinda advice you need.

    But to answer your Q, I'm a stick burner, so i use wood the whole time.

    Good luck, and remember the[​IMG]    [​IMG]

    Huh, Well welcome anyway [​IMG]

    I would smoke until you hit the 165º and continue as you have planned.

    It sounds like you have a good plan to me.

    Happy Smokin' Cramer

    I let the smoke roll the whole time.
