Ok. So after seeing a 6 pound brisket for 10/pound my wife went to Lunardis here and found a 3 pound "center cut" brisket. It was still 10/pound, but starting small was an easier sell. So i threw some SPOG on it and it i s sitting in the fridge. It is probably about 2 inches thick so i am figuring about 5 hours at 225. I am going to give this a try and see if the family likes it. If they do we will venture into a bigger piece of meat. Since it is a bit thinner is my timing seem in the right park? I am going to have a cooler and some towels ready to let it sit for a bit after. Thanks for the look and any comments. .
