    Picked up a 12 lb brisket at Walmart last week. Trimmed, rubbed with evoo and my rub. Using red oak and cherry, temps running about 250 so far.

    Looks like it will be a good one.
    I get my full packers at Walmart around here, only other briskets I can find are flats, already trimmed for $4.99lb and that is way too much if I can trim it myself for $1.86lb

    Perfect timing, I'm planning on doing one this Thursday. Are you going to pull, slice, or both? Foil wrap or covered foil pan? Mop? Looking forward to seeing th final result!

    Temps seemed to want to run a bit hotter after foiling so I let it run at 275.

    Foiled at 170.


    Finished total cook time from the fridge to the cooler was a little over 13 hours. Cook time didn't seem right but I checked the thermo and it's accurate so yet another faster than expected smoke. I'm not complaining. [​IMG]

    Pulled at 200, decided to pull instead of slice being I had so much.


    I love my Bandera. [​IMG]
