Ya gotta love that Blue smoke... 6:30am... I fired it up and stuck a rubbed brisket in there...rubbed yesterday and kept in the fridge all night. I used a store bought rub, added a little ground cinnamon(a tip a friend told me about) then this morning I added 1 teaspoon of minced garlic to the top... I placed chunks of Hickory in the bottom of the charcoal pan, then a layer of Lump charcoal...and mixed some briquettes and smaller hickory chips on top...Can't wait till this baby is done!!! I have got to gear myself up and try some pulled pork... :lol: Thanks again for all the advice everyone!!!!
