So I did a smaller brisket flat a few weeks ago and decided to go larger and grabbed one from SAMs. Just shy of 8 lbs. Trimmed her up, SPOG'd it around 5:00 a.m. and got her going at 250 degress around 6:00. I wanted to do it at 225 but I can't seem to get solid smoke going at anything less than 250. I didn't foil and it finished at 200ish degress around 3:00. Put her in foil and rested for about 2 hours. It was pretty solid but I am still looking to get it a little less dry. Not that it was too dry but am still searching for a really juicy brisket. I did foil my last attempt but this one was actually better. Hope you enjoy .
