I bought a new electric smoker on Black Friday and decided to attempt to try a brisket. I started small due to price and bought a small pretrimmed 3lb brisket. I would hate to waste big money ruining my first brisket!
I seasoned it up last night and plan to cover it with bacon for a little added fat since it all has been trimmed off. I am putting apple juice in the drip pan. Should I periodically baste with apple juice?
Any suggestions? I am thinking I will wrap at about 160-170. Is that about right?
