So I decided to brave a brisket. We have two from buying sides of beef, and I wanted to wait until I have a little experience.
Last night I gave it a rub with mustard.
Got up this morning at 4:30. It was 7.5 lbs, so I anticipated about 11 hours. While I was sitting around waiting to load more chips I ordered an A-Maz-N pellet tray.
Didn't take as long as I thought. No stall at all. Pulled it at 190.
One of the most tender briskets I have ever had. Even my 11 year old critic liked it.
Dinner is served.
