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.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YYlPEk6fX0

 

 

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.
