Another newbee hits the forum....ugh! I purchased an Original Bradley Smoker last weekend, and smoked my first brisket yesterday. Since, I'm new to smoking, I decided to use the recipe off the Bradley Cookbook. I smoked a 6 lb. flat brisket and used the rub from the recipe. The recipe called to cook the brisket between 180 ~ 200 degrees for 10 hours with a minimum smoke time of 4 hours....I smoked for 5. The brisket was too dry...but has a wonderful taste. I know that I will improve as I gain more practice, but I think another recipe might yield a little "juicer" brisket...needless to say, I'm shopping for brisket recipes. I started searching this morning and quickly got overwhelmed by the thousand of recipes through various forums and websites. Perhaps some of you have a simple, fool proof recipe for smoking 5 ~6 lb briskets? All help is welcomed... Happy smokin'
