Yelp the plan is to let the baccon rinder down in the brisket like the fatcap would i hope it works the last time my wife got the trimed flats they turned out a little dry with just the water pan and spraying them.

I have to congratulate you Johnboy. If my wife brought home briskets trimmed like that , I would have cured them and made pastrami or corned beef.  BUT you my friend went the extra mile and made a smoked brisket.  

Looks awesome!  Point to you!

Good save, JBB.  Also kudos for not filing divorce papers or starting WWIII.
