Thought I would share a great Irish treat. We took a 7 pound brisket and coated it with pickling spices overnight. I then smoked it FAT SIDE DOWN at 180 degrees for 9 hours. Next I put the brisket into a turkey pan, added a little beef broth, potatoes, carrots, and 2 heads of cabbage for another 3 hours at 250. A taste that is virtually indescribable. I will not wait for St. Patricks day to try again !!
