The brisket turned out fantastic. I have never smoked anything before, was using a borrowed Bandera, and was very pleased with the results, as were my guests.

Just grabbed what I had in the spice box for rub, pepper, salt, paprika, garlic.

Watched it like a hawk.....I made one of the recommended coal baskets, but could not keep the temp up much over 200, so I dumped coals onto the grate (about 3 4 inches off the bottom of the fire box) and presto! Instant 350, choked it down to about 275 using the side controls and the chimney...and away we went, waited until it was butter soft to the stab.

This Bandera used a large amount of fuel, but perhaps that is just my inexperience.....thanks for all the good advice.
