    Welcome, Roper! Boy goin' right after it, eh? Brisket's a of the more difficult cuts. If you plan on a whole "packer" style, you are looking at anywhere from 16-20 hours. A "flat" -about half a packer takes less time, obviously. But hey...jump on in, the water's fine, and there's plenty of lifeguards if ya think yer too deep!

    Don't forget to season the machine beforehand. Most folks rinse out the inside and then coat with Pam spray, and fire up a small wood load and get 'er temp right up there to maybe 300 for a while, then cool it down.

    Any other seasoning methods, folks? Especially anything in particular for his model? I'm not familiar with it.

    Hey Roper welcome to the SMF, remember if you have any question just shout them out and some one will answer them soon. I don't know if any one else has told you but when you're new here and you smoke a brisket, you have to send some of it to all of us to sample. We'l get back with you and tell you how much we liked it. LOL. Glad to have you here.
