Reason for the delay in cooking another is that my first two many years ago went straight to the trash after trying to eat it. Total failures! I think I am ready to attempt this again. I have an 8 lb brisket I plan to cook tomorrow on my MES 40 with some mesquite smoke. I am currently reading many threads on here for help and tips but any suggestions are appreciated. I will post pics as I go. I plan to rub it later today and let it sit overnight and start it in the morning. Not sure if it will be ready by dinner or not!
