    Hey I'm a plumber from New Zealand interested in testing my skills and abilities by creating a hot smoker and if that works I'll try smoke some food too! I need as much advice as possible as I'm very new to this all and all I know is that smoked foods are delicious and I belive I have the skills to create an awesome smoker!

    Today is my first attempt at smoking anything. I've seasoned my char broil electric smoker. Today I'm trying to smoke a small 4 lbs brisket. Everyone makes it sound so easy. how long do I leave it in the smoker? I'm planning on 2.5 hours in the smoker at 225 then wrap in foil and 2 hours in the oven at 225. Then I'll let rest for a hour and slice. Does that sound alright? Help guys?

    Yeah I've been learning a lot from these forum the last few days. At first I wanted to make a one from a 40 gallon drum but my skills lie not in welding so I'm not sure what to go for now. I would like to fabricate my own box but I'm still learning what products are okay to use for cooking and heating. Any ideas? What about aluminium sheets fabricated into a box?
