Hello all, I've read up on smoking brisket and am going to try my hand at it with a friend this weekend. A few questions:
First, I plan on foiling at 170 and putting it back in until it reaches 195ish. This might sound dumb...but how do you foil it? Do you take it completely out of the smoker and take the thermal probe out, too, then stick the probe back in through the foil? In the same spot or does it matter? And how much foil do you all use when you wrap it?
Also, should I "mop" or spray the brisket and if so, with what? Apple juice? And how often?
Thanks to all who reply.
