    Guys, and gals,

    A good friend gave me a 12.3# Wagyu brisket from snake river farms this week for Christmas. I'm planning on smoking it tomorrow and was wondering if anyone had much experience with them. I'm planning on using pecan/oak at about 250*, salt and pepper rub, and wrapping in butcher paper at the halfway point. I've read that they can cook a little quicker than a regular brisket and also that they finish at a lower temp (180-190). The only advice I got from my local smoking buddies was "Don't screw it up!" Hahaha! "Great, thanks"

    Any advice/tips would be much appreciated!

    Thanks David! Seems like those threads morphed into more of a "is wagyu worth the money or not" discussion. I'm just wondering if they actually cook out differently or if you would smoke it the same way/temps as a regular brisket.

    I'd just go with the plan you have. Check it earlier than normal for doneness.

    Just be sure you keep it checked for tenderness, would be a shame to screw it up.  I don't think I'd ever spend the money for one but good luck.  Let us know how it turns out.

    I hear you @Bear55. Would be hard for me to justify paying for wagyu. Luckily this was a gift! Woohoo!

    Will do @oldschoolbbq. Have you ever wrapped with butcher paper?
