Smoked this Costco prime Brisket Sunday. Same technique I have been using. 7 hours in the smoke, then, 5 in the oven at 225°. Got up at 3 am and stuck it in the warmer at around 150°. We went on the boat we are renting in Lake Michigan up here, Sea Ray Sundancer 440. Very nice. Anyway, came back and sliced up the brisket around 5 pm. It turned out VERY good. Nice bark:

This is a not so good, lol, pic of the flat. Trust me, it was Homer Simpson drooling good.

This pic is today. Refrigerated overnight last night and then in the warmer today for about 6 hours. Starting to get a bit shreddy but still incredibly moist and tender and tasty. Pic from the point:

I am very pleased with how I have been able to smoke brisket and finish in the oven and hold for so long. This has been a game changer for me. Also, going back to under thinking haha and no probes, etc. Just feel. Anyway, really enjoying the art right now.
 
Out of curiosity, what did you use for a rub? I got a massive brisket from Costco myself that I plan on marinating tomorrow and still getting ideas on rubs.

Hi Displaced Texan Displaced Texan I'd love to try this technique. Do you fully wrap in foil when in the oven? I know some folk do foil boats or butcher paper. Looking to do my first brisket on my craig bell smoker for the 4th.

I do not wrap in foil, just butcher paper.
