I had the idea to smoke a beef brisket this weekend. So I ordered one up from our local meat packer, which buys its fresh meat from sources within a 100 mile radius. Opened the package yesterday and discovered that it will not all fit in the smoker. Here you see 1/2 of it, about five lbs. Rinsed and patted dry, a little salt and pepper sprinkled on it, coming up to room temperature. Now, off to start the smoker.
