Comment on How to Make Smoked Beef Brisket by Kikukat.

Love your pics and information. I live in a place where brisket, other than the corned beef variety, is hard to come by; it can only be found at Costco, which is 2 hours away. My technique is similar to your, but I use guava wood, since its readily available and free (growing in the pasture next door).

Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
