    Finished and resting.....


    Everything resting.....




    First slice.....


    18.5 lbs of sliced brisket....

    Overall it was a really good smoke.  We had about 10 different sides and a lot of full stomachs.

    I need to find better friends...lol...when I retired from the Navy all my friends did is took me out and got me drunk...wasn't real hard...I was a pretty willing participant.  If I would have got what you just put on... I would have gotten into smoking back then instead of a few years ago, because I am positive your spread taste as good as it looks.  Tell your friend...welcome to the Porch Monkey club checks show up the first on every month, now instead of just siting on the porch waiting ...you can sit by your smoker and wait..lol..much more fun

    Sure, come on down. 

    Grab some of my cousins in Ontario and bring them with you. 

    Only condition is that you have to bring me a case of real Molson Canadian.  The Canadian version is better than what I can get here.  Also, if you grab some OV my Dad would be your new best friend.
