It was 11:40 on Friday night the 27th January 32 degrees outside when I placed it in the smoker.
The weight of the brisket is 9.25 lbs and temperature at 215. I chose a smaller packer because this brisket met my tenderness test. It was very loose and flexible. The larger 13 lb briskets we're very rigid or firmer and in my opinion will not make a better finished product.
I will be using a Smokin Tex 1400 Pro and filled the smoker box with hickory chips instead of blocks.
I have taken several pictures at the start of the process and will follow through to the end.
