Brisket in a rocket ship

Thought I would post a thread using the rocket ship.
I have successfully cooked and smoked a couple times using this modified
ECB-W22 a couple times, including jerky at 140-150° .
So I'm doing a whole smaller brisket today using a minion and some mixed apple and hickory chunk wood.

The brisket has SPOG and a little heat by way of cayenne and some pepper flakes. I used a bit of lemon pepper and lawry's.
This thing is easy to adjust heat up and down. I'm running 230 at 40 minute mark .
I have a drip pan under most of the meat. Running fat cap up and I will flip it later to render more fat and protect the meat in the later stages.
Was a 8.5 lb little brisket and I trimmed off 1.25 lbs hard fat and silver skin.
But of leaking around the kettle lid but I leave it alone. Not losing enough heat to worry about.
All 3 dampers on the kettle body are open to let in smoke from the ECB charcoal pan. Or tabletop kettle modified. I elevated the charcoal for this cook to conserve fuel. Normally it is in a lower position.
Will have some finished food pics later I home.
I'm also doing 8 lbs of beef jerky on the ECM (El Cheapo Masterbuilt) today.

Will that rocket really fly? If so hope it lands in my yard in time for supper. Great looking piece of brisket there.

Yeah Al , it seemed nice and bendable. It bent nice in the package and had a good even thickness to it. The flat seemed decent and had good softer fat that will render more. I will try and get this done whole without the wrapping. Try to just power through the stall . I may go 275 -300 at the end and flip this so the fat is underneath. Has a bunch of fat so it should be juicy.

No brisket pic...
I put it in foil to rest and just ended up sticking it in the fridge for reheating today..

Was 12 midnight :D

Did get a couple pounds of jerky done.
Used the Masterbuilt electric bullet and a tray of lumber Jack pellets.

Turned out really good. Left it whole and made some juice from it and my beef stock.
Had a big thick sandwich with some beef stock reduced on and good horseradish sauce. Some cottage cheese and good pickles. Good stuff..

That has to be one of the coolest things I've ever seen. We are truly only limited by our imaginations. Brisket & Jerky look awesome.
