After thoughts... lessons learned...


 - The temperature failure that I experienced early this morning was the smoker itself.  I must have sloshed some juices where they don't belong.

 - It took 22 hours from start to finish for the 16lb Choice Brisket.  It shouldn't have taken that long.  I should have trusted the maverick and just upped the heat until the maverick had the right temperature.
 - Buy a smaller brisket next time.  :)

 - I used this video to teach me how to cut a brisket.  There were others, but I liked the idea of removing the point to get the ends into the smoker.



Everything came out awesome especially the burnt ends even though they weren't really burnt.


Thanks y'all!!!!

Thank you for restoring my faith that one day I too can achieve success with a brisket. Great thread, I enjoyed following it.
