I just made my own smoker and smoked some steak and a brisket. The steak was awesome but the brisket was so-so. I smoked the brisket for 7 hours at 210-220 and then wrapped it tight in foil and into the oven at 230 for 2 more hours. I had to slice it, it wouldn't pull. It was juicy and full of flavor but not like I wanted. This was my very first meat smoking experience and I plan on having many more but I need some tips on brisket. Thanks.
