Tried my hand at smoking brisket this weekend as I had part of one from a portion of cow I ordered a while back. Put a rub on it and set it in the smoker at 225F for 7 hours with apple juice in the water pan and sprayed it occasionally with pineapple juice. Then wrapped it in foil with a little apple juice for 2.5 hours. Then let it take a little more smoke for .5 hours before pulling it. Turned out pretty well I believe as it was gone by the end of the night and no one complained . End result was good but I think it could have been a little more juicy as well maybe I let it go to long and should have pulled it earlier? However the way the day was wasn't home much to watch it. Good news is I have another one so well try again.
