    cooked the first brisket today and it came out good it was a 13 lb brisket.  we just rubbed it down with salt and pepper and smoked it with oak and mesquite about half and half.

    here it is at 8:30 this morning


    and here it is 2 hours into the smoke


    here it is done before slicing

    Not being a wise guy, but next time for the benefit of us Qview lovers, could you get a little closer on your sliced pics???

    I'm betting it looks even better----closer!!!
