My first brisket

8 pound brisket out of the freezer and thawing out.  I'm following the recipe in John McLemore's "Dadgum That's Good" book and using my new MES 30 (bought from QVC - too good a deal to pass up).  The brisket was bought from CostCo and looks to be already trimmed.  More Q-View to come as I go through the process...

Question ?    Have you cooked anything on your new MES or is this going to be the first ?

Hi Gary,

I've smoked ribs and a few other things in this MES. I also have an older MES and have smoked many times with it. That said, this will be my first brisket and I'm really looking forward to it.

Is the weather out there going to let you? We need that rain on the west coast! Good luck with the brisket! I have become addicted to it in the past few months and use it as the primary protein for the families breakfast, lunch and diner!

Thanks - The recipe I'm using is very complicated, but I followed it religeously.  11 ingredients for the marinade and 10 for the rub...

It's overcast and cool, a little drizzly, but not enough to worry about.  Wish I could send some of this rain to you, but those darn Rockies get in the way.

Looks good! Wish I could throw one on now, and get it quick. (Like the BBQ Pit Boys say, "Through the miracle of time...")

I couldn't tell from the pic, what color smoker did you end up getting? First time I'd ever seen multiple colors, on that QVC show.

I got the Cinnamon MES.  Second choice was the blue...

I've been hooked for a few years now - but never had the time to do a brisket.  Also, was always a little apprehensive about ruining an expensive piece of meat...
