I've had a brisket on for about 3.5 hours so far. It is up to about 160 or so, and when I went to check on it to foil, I noticed that it didn't have much bark! What happened was I am also cooking a couple pork butts, in my WSM. I put the pork on top, and as it was dripping on the brisket (which hopefully gave me some piggy goodness in the brisket), it kept the bark from forming. I moved it to the top, and went ahead and foiled the butts - here's what it looks like: What would your plan of attack be? Continue to smoke unfoiled? Go ahead and foil it? I'll be slicing, and my mother in law is in town, so tenderness will be the most important thing in this smoke, as that's what will make her talk to her son about how awesome my brisket was, which will make me smile! Thanks for the help!
