First time brisket

Discussion in 'Beef' started by chilicook, Jul 31, 2008.

  1. Hi Folks ! I am about to embark into uncharted waters here! I have never smoked a brisket before (Due to the fact here in Calif they are not easy to come by .) I have smoked just about everything else though . So next weekend I'm going to give it the Ol' college try I've got the basics down. I will be using my ECB water smoker, I will be smoking with mesquite wood for a min. of 14 hours at 220 degrees, I will be cheating and using propane as a heat source ( Yeah I know Boo-hisssss ) But as a good deal of alcohol will most likley be involved during this smoking process, I don't want to have to worry too much about heat control LOL. But I want this to be as close to a real Texas style somked brisket as possible Any sugguestions on what I should do and any good rubs for brisket out there ??

    Thanks for your help
