    Morgy look to the left and click on brisket-will learn you a thing or too. or do a search of threads on briskets.

    Welcome to SMF Morg... I would caution you on using only wood for your heat, especially if you are just starting. What experience do you have? Have you used the smoker before?

    Using lump charcoal for heat is the way to go, as it's hard to get decent temps with the small box on most SFB's. And a box full of flames is NOT what you want.

    Get a chimney of lump going in there then ya just add a bit of wood to the box for smoke.
