    Thanks Dan! I appreciate it!

    I thought the same thing about the grate temps on a RF.

    But it actually worked out good, because I really like to have a pan of water in my smoker.

    I was just trying to figure out the best place to put it. And now I have the perfect spot.

    Thanks B! I never planned it, it just kind of happened, both plates were sitting there & I just piled it all on the buns.

    It was very good & I will do it again for sure.

    Tonight we are going to chop some of the leftover brisket up & make some chili.

    May even chop some of the burnt ends for that too.

    Thanks Lance!

    It's been so hot here lately I think I may give the Lang a rest for a couple of weeks.

    At least that's what I'm saying now.

    Thanks for the point too!

    Thank you Sir!

    Ha Ha, the sad thing is your probably right!

    I was already looking in the freezer to see if there was anything in there that just had to be smoked.

    I just did my first brisket and will be posting soon. However, I am most upset that you didn't post this great thread until after I had done mine. I needed the information! Tsk.

    Points for a great brisket despite the bad timing.

    Sorry for commenting on an old post, but I'm smoking my first brisket on Saturday and using this thread as a guide. Can you explain the logic behind using a pan for 2 pieces versus putting it directly on the grate for the whole packer? I ask because I plan on separating the point and flat like you did (and potentially cutting the flat in half) to decrease the cook time.

    Here's part of the reason it's in the pan.

    Look at that liquid.. bet that helps make for some juicy meat.
    He may have wanted it to cook more evenly and could deal with his sliced flat and burnt ends separate as each got finished.

    Yep, Johnny is right. If I smoke a flat or point by itself I always smoke it in a pan, sitting in the juice.
    In my opinion you get a much better result smoking in a pan, and you have some nice juice to make an Au Jus.
    Also in this case it is easier to make burnt ends, when the point is already separated from the flat, because they rarely get done at the same time.
