Here's to a great brisket.
Took it to 175 then covered with foil. All I did was just add some apple juice to it then took it to 205.
I let it sit in the cooler for about 1 1/2 hours covered in towels to let it rest and soak up its juices. I brought it in and set on the plate covered still and made an au-juice out of the liguid. That turned out awesome.
Made fried new potatoes with rosemary for the side.
So tender I cut it with my fork. I'm beginning to see why alot of people cover with foil. And continue to go to to the finish temp. When I covered with foil i rook my MES to 240 till it hit the 205 mark. Smoked over all for 15hrs. At just over 12 hrs this is how much of my pellets I used.
I think I did something right with my smoke box. I used the combo pellets that came with my AMNPS when i bought it. Hickory, Maple and cherry blend. Still got alot left in the unit. So for me I am looking over 12 hrs per full unit. Oh it was a good dinner. Worth the wait.
