    Finally smoked my first brisket in the mes 30. I kept it simple with just salt and pepper on brisket. I used a combo of hickory chips and chunks with a little charcoal. I got a little smoke ring somehow, but on the bottom only tho?? It was 8.7 lbs and all one rack wanted. I made burnt ends out of the point!!:drool

    That last shot is great. The meat looks very tender. How did you like the simple rub? Would you step it up next time or keep it the same?

    I couldn't believe the tenderness. The probe just fell thru like melted butter. The brisket had so much flavor I see why people use just salt and pepper and throw it on. I may try a different rub next time, but the meat sure didn't need it.
