Al: I didn't foil as I was afraid it would shorten the cook time by too much. I respect your advice but this time I just had to go with my gut. Next time, I foil! :)
Stoked the coals and left them at 212.
So, I decided to pull.
I split the point thinking I would do burnt ends, but decided against them as I didn't trust how the flat was looking. It seems a bit dry, but I didn't slice the whole thing yet.
Both are now resting (foil, towels, cooler). I'll be slicing at around 1.
So the smoke started at 5pm, pulled at 7:30am for resting. That's 14.5 hours at low heat.
It'll rest for 6 hours - is that too long?
Something tells me I'll be pulling this brisket, not slicing it.
Back to bed for a nap :)
