    doing my first brisket on saturday...i've done ribs, fatties, chicken, tri tip, chuckies on the smoker with pretty good success...

    i would like to know if anyone has used bacon flavorings (grease) in their brisket mop...seems like a good idea to how some mops ask for olive oil....

    any other pointers are welcome...

    its just the FLAT...3.5 pounds..horizontal offset smoke with minimal mods...but still smokes great and holds temp fine :)

    no.  but I have draped bacon over lean briskets to keep moist and add flavor.  Turned out great!  Your idea should work just fine.  Certainly won't hurt anything.

    1 tablespoon or less of garlic salt
