Started this morning, 11# brisket packer. Put it in the smoker at 5, at 250. No plans for time on finishing, just gunna play this one by ear. Shooting for an IT of 160-165 then I'll wrap.
For the meat, I injected, I know, everyone has their opinion, but I wanted as much flavor as possible. The rub is my version of a Texas brisket, just a little bit more than blk pepper n salt.
I do plan on mopping every hour or so, just for the crust and moisture.
Any comments or advice would be appreciated.

Looking good. Id go to 190 max if your planning on slicing it. If you are pulling then 200 is fine
