It turned out very very very tender, a 1/4, 1/2 or a 1 inch slice can be pulled apart without falling apart 

The center was moist, but not juicy, and lacked flavor and smoke ring. Adding Chef Jimmy's Au Jus, or a good BBQ sauce saved the day.

If you love bark texture I nailed it, the flavor was ok but needs improvement.

 

This was my first brisket and I had a GREAT Bday cooking it, and overall it was good.

 

But need improvement in:

Bark Taste, I will be changing everything!

With Smoke Ring

Better overall flavor, I like my cooking when it doesn't need Au Jus or BBQ sauce.

Moisture, would give up a little tenderness for more moisture.

Pre-trim weight, was 10 pounds.  I trimmed at lease a pound of fat, leaving 1/4 inch layer.

 

Cooking temp was 214 to 230. Final internal temp was 196.

I also got the char griller duo.  Looking forward to doing a all night brisket.  What did you use for fuel and how often did you have to replenish?
