Default Fired up the smoker for the first time this summer

As part of the meal I prepared for a fundraiser event that my family hosted I was finally able to fire up the smoker this year. I smoked about 7 pounds of brisket. I dry rubbed overnight with my spice blend and smoked the 3 pieces for about 5 hours then finished it in the oven at about 250* Sliced it thin and made BBQ Brisket Sliders with mini Ciabatta rolls. I also made mini burger sliders with a garlic basil aioli and a lime aioli and caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. also grilled up a bunch of chicken satay made with chicken tenderloins. Fed about 50 people, I was a busy man on Sunday

here are a couple pics

the meat:


gotta have a cigar or 3 haha

usually between 4-6 hours for brisket and a little less for ribs, i usually finish them in the oven tightly covered with foil and some apple juice for some steam at 250*

Oh how I wish I was there. I have the smoker on the left and enjoy using it.
One thing I have learned is that Smoking (meats) is a learned art.
For example... I just smoked a shoulder pork roast to make pulled pork. I failed big time. Perhaps it was the cut of meat.

Looks like you had a good start. No pics of the finish so I guess you'll have to do it again so we don't think you heated up a Hungry Man or something like it.

You should toss a fatty in there for yourself next time too.
