I rang in the new year by smoking a brisket point on my new MES 30 (I did the flat a while back on my adapted gas grill.) I wasn't impressed but my wife and mother-in-law liked it. The flat I did on the gas grill had a really good flavor but was tough; I shorted myself on time. I have decided that this year I want to try to perfect my brisket and get started on fatties and ABT's. What is it that you all are going to try to perfect or at least try out on the pit this year?
