Fired up the bandera today to cook a turkey and butt for one of my mom's nurses. While I was cooking anyway I threw a brisket and butt on for us. Mu rub was very simple..turbinado sugar, kosher salt and Tony C's creole seasoning. Got it on around 9:30 Wednesday morning. Turkey was done about 2:30. By 3:30, the brisket and butts were at 180. Wrapped them all and put it back in. It all came off at about and hour later. Put to set with a blanket over them. About 5:30 the butt literally fell apart in my hands. The brisket had a wonderful bark and sliced to perfection. My significantly better half said make a note of what you did because these are both the best you have ever done. Sometimes the simple things are the best things.

When I first started doing this I fell into the rookie mind set (More is better and the more different ingredience the better.) Then reality strikes you. ( KISS ) Keep It Simple Stupid. Give the meat credit, it has wonderful flavor on it's own. Complement and don't over power. I use this same philosophy in my sauces and rubs and I satarted winning at contests.

Try wood instead of gas. :roll:

Actually - you should have no problem with your cooker you fark. You should be be able to keep a steady temp at any degree you want and supplement it with all the smoke you want. I've used your cooker for ribs and fish smoked and gravlox) and turned out great stuff. Put the farker (you) and the smoker on a plane and get yer arse out here. Oh - and don't forget the women.
