Ok so I have a masterbilt electric smoker and so far I yield good results with simple stuff. I have tried smoking brisket before and I just can't get it right. The prepping and mopping I seem to understand well. What I, wondering is the cook temp, the temp gauge on mine shows 240 ish before it will actually begin to smoke. I always smoke on e top rack because it is above the temp gauge so I figure the temp will be a little lower. Also I have seen people smoke them in the tin foil pans and they kinda just cook in there own juices. What's your input? Anything is greatly appreciated for a newbie like me.
