Texas bar-be-que smoked-brisket with ice tea and cole slaw. As close to heaven as you can be after bbqed ribs Note-A smoked-brisket is a major Smoke barbecue project. It may take

a few months to cook brisket right-just

Kidding... figure between 9-12 hours. It takes

Me that long.

my rules of smoking brisket

1.smoking takes at least 7 hours

-figure one hour per pound.

2.keep the temperature of the

smoker around 190degrees f

3 when the brisket is well smoked

a red ring of smoke will be on the

edge of the brisket

Do not be disappointed-you will get

the hang of it. In the beginning my most

common mistake was not cooking it

enough and having to cut the brisket to

check for being done with the thermometer.

Make sure you have a clean thermometer and use your thermometer

1 and 1/2 cup chili powder

1/2 cup paprika

place the brisket back in the refrigerator in a clean closed container

the next day

prior to the fire starting fill your water pan to the top-if you want to try something different add half the liquid as Dr Pepper
