Howdy all,
I’ve done a few brisket flats and they usually are ok but not great. Today I decided to give it another go. Picked one up, gave it a slight trim, and then a heaping of HC black. Onto the Zgrill it went with pecan pellets until the stall, wrapped, and back on until ~205. It’s was mostly probe tender but in one spot could have gone a bit more. I was tired and don’t care too much since some of this will be frozen and reheated with the sous vide.

Anyway, this thing was really good. Perfect amount of seasoning for the beef. Great bark. Learned a lot and can’t wait to go again.

Great job! I think you nailed it as well! The fun part now is to repeat exactly what you did before and see if you get the same result. I aim for repeatability...
