    My girlfriend and mom surprised me with an Oklahoma Joe offset smoker last week and I coudn't be more excited to learn about this bad boy. I have an 8lb brisket flat on right now. Maintaining steady temp at 220-225 right now.

    Welcome to the forum.  The search bar at the top of the page can become your best friend.  Have a question or a problem just search for the answer.  As to your brisket, I usually plan for one hour per pound plus two hours at 235.  Having said that all pieces of meat are different.  I always foil my briskets at 165 internal temp then take them to 195-197 pull them and then into an ice chest for at least an hour before slicing.  Just be sure and watch your smoker temps as well as the IT of the brisket and you'll be fine.

    Welcome to the board! If your offset is like mine, you'll find a lot of different ways to use it. (see my sig)

    You'll know you've gone over the edge when you keep a saw in the car to gather wood.

    Lsilber,
    Welcome, from southern Ohio, to the best forum on the internet if you are looking to learn how to BBQ/smoke/brine/cure/inject. Well you get the picture if you can do it to something you put on a plate to eat then someone here has probably done it then smoked it.

    Use the search bar at the top of the page and you will be led to the answer to most every question you can think of. If you don't find the answer there then just post it and someone will chime in with their opinion on the subject.

    Always remember the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask!!
    Keep Smokin!!!
