    Hello everyone my name is Chris.
    The other day I had an itch for some brisket, and didn't want to pay the huge price of buying one from a BBQ place, so I decided to try and make one for myself.

    I found a recipe online and had everything made up last night. I am using a Weber 22" One Touch grill. I just happened to find this place via Google, and found lot of good info to help me along the way. I had some oak and plum wood, so that's what I used. I woke up early this morning to get the whole thing started. I had a few problems controlling the temp. I was at 250, but when I closed of the bottom vent enough to get the temp to around 220, the coals would go out. I finally got the temp down by removing some coals, but they were also hard to keep going. After around 10 hours, I decided to pull it and finish off in the oven. Where it sits now. I will let you know how it turns out when its finished. I hope it comes out OK. :)
