I've attempted my last brisket. Made terrible brisket flats so I finally tried a packer to no success. Smoked it, 8 pd packer, for 5 1/2 hrs at 250 to 164, wrapped and let go til 195. Was done early so I wrapped the foiled brisket in a towel and put in oven at 100 degrees. Had to leave it there for about 3 hrs. Dry, dry dry. Falling apart but dry! Tried to follow Aaron Franklin's video and tried to use all the suggestions of people on this forum. Woke up at 2am had it on at 4am. Smoked for a total of 10hrs. A lot of work for lousy brisket. I"m done with brisket.
