  1. Smoked first brisket yesterday. Trimmed brisket 5 pounds. Put on at 8:00AM thinking it would be done late afternoon. Wrong. Was at 175 when I pulled it at midnight. 1 hour in 250 oven then 4 layers of foil to rest. Sampled this morning and it turned out great.

    How heavy was it?
  3. 16 hours for a 5# brisket seems long. What was your smoker temp?

    That looks like it was worth the wait!!
  5. Yeah, I thought so too. 215 for first 6 hours then 235 after that.

    Looks like your temp was too low. I start at 225-230 and after the wrap, I bump to 250 or so.

    Still, looks like you got a good meal from it!

    That's one of the best looking briskets I've seen. Whatever you did it sure worked well.

  8. Thanks, Al. The extended cook time must have made a difference. Was very delicious.
