Well I couldn't make it down to Paddle Around the Pier in the end (sadly). Alas, I have put on a spare brisket I had left from Grillstock, and it's a monster. 4.6kg, so it's going to take around 15 hours to cook.
The brisket has been rubbed in an off the shelf product called Big Poppa Smokers 'Double Secret' Steak Rub. I'm using a couple of decent sized chunks of oak to produce the smoke and at this very moment I'm getting blue smoke which is ideal.
Here's a pic of the start and I promise to post end results this time!
