Today is only the second time since Bailey arrived on the scene that I've used my smoker. She's not even five months old yet and I just couldn't deal with her being around the hot smoker.
This was also the second time that I've smoked a brisket. The first one was good, but I wanted to try a new recipe for marinade and rub.
I used a marinade recipe that I found online. It has orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, soy sauce, and olive oil. The rub came from Stuart's Spices, a local store that mixes up their spices on site. I have been satisfied with everything I have bought from them and they are very customer service oriented.
Surprisingly, this time, I found Bailey was actually afraid of the smoker! That is not her usual personality!
If you have never tried smoking meat, just DO IT! For a long time, I was afraid to try it. It seemed complex and beyond my skill set. NONSENSE! Anyone can easily learn to be a pro at it. The results are just fantastic. I have never had a failure yet and this is my second year as Master Meat Smoker of Doncaster Rd!!!
