I have a Smo-Kit, small propane smoker I received from my brother. There is only directions with it for smoking fish. Can I smoke/cook a brisket in it, or is it advisable. Or do I just get the smoke flavor from the smo=kit and finish it elsewhere?

JenBen as long as you can control the temperature you should be able to cook with it also. Can you regulate the temperature? My brother has a propane smoker and he cooks it it along with smoking.

Thank you for your response Brewmaster. Low, Med and High are the only control I have. No visiable thermometer. 2 racks. so I can put it closer to or farther away from heat source and smoke tray.

You can buy a temperature gage with a probe, this is what I use when smoking/cooking. You want to cook your brisket between 200-225 degrees. I believe that your smoke is liquid propane, correct? Don't know how long it will keep cooking you may want to experiment. Usuallly when I smoke/cook a brisket it takes 6-8 hours depending on what temperature you use and how large your brisket ir.

JenBen...I agree with Brewmaster. Get you a temperature probe to check the temperature of the bristet and cook it to about 175 to 190 for slicing and 195 to 205 for pulling...wrap in foil and then in a towel and rest for one hour +. JMO.

What are you going to use for smoke?
