Thanks everyone! Mofo, it might have just been the cut you got. Check this out:
Jeanie, sorry! went over great, just got to bring a little bag back home, and am currently munching on it, won't be none left here in a minute. I really like the flavor, more so than pork. Been searching, readin old posts and making notes since I got home, already planning on doing another next weekend. Hopefully I'll have better timing and won't have to stay up all night! 3 hours sleep is a little rough, but it was worth it! If anyone else is wondering about burnt ends, not sure who Scott in KC was, but he made a great post, sticky worthy imho: Thanks again everyone!

Evey thing looks YUMMY!! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

You said the flat was dry? Next time try either leaving about a 1/4 inch of the fat on and slicing groves, in a criss cross pattern into the fat cap about 1 inch apart (to let the smoke get into the meat).

Or, do like I do and trim off all the fat, like you did, and keep it. Place it into an aluminum pan. Then add some seasoning to it. Then, just before you place it in the smoker, directly above the brisket, slice slits into the bottom of the pan. That way, the fat melts and drips onto the brisket, making a "self basting brisket".

Also, try to avoid opening the door so much. To do this, put your thermo probe in the brisket before you start cooking. You can run the wires through the vent and into to read out.

On the whole, good job, and congrats on the good looking grub.

P.S. True burnt ends are actually the edges of the point and the flat that get "crispy". You cut these off prior to slicing or pulling the brisket.

That's my .02 worth
