    Hi All, I'm new to smoking and this is my first post here. Having said that I have some beginner questions. I have a party planned for about 40 people and I would really like to go for major WOW factor with my BBQ! I just bought a new char broil smoker with a side box and I have a 13.5 lb brisket that I am going to try to smoke all night the night before. My questions are how long should I actually cook it for, and I also noticed that I have a hard time keeping the smoker at a consistent temperature. Are there any helpfull tips on how to keep the smoker at about 225-240 without constant adjustments. I also was wondering what the difference is between the flat and the point. I appologize for the long post. Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Smokers with SFBs (side fire boxes) need modifications done to them to get them to smoke right. Search bar up above is real helpful for that. Search charbroil mods or chargriller mods. Tons of info on how to fix your smoker up. You might want to jump over to Roll Call and intro yourself and get a proper SMF welcome.
