A first shot at brisket

So I plan on cooking my first brisket this weekend.  I am really excited and nervous.  Since I started watching Aaron Franklin’s show on GPTV and then getting to eat at Franklin BBQ, I have really wanted to try my hand at smoking briskets.  The food I had at his place was unreal.  Below are a few pictures from that trip.




So, I will get my brisket this afternoon and I will start somewhere around 3 or 4 Saturday morning.  I will give a round up after it is done.  Wish me luck!
