OK here are the pics of my First brisket from my first thread http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/97983/first-brisket-tonight.

 It went really well over all my temps we right in the 220-235 range the whole time. I put it in the smoker at 3:30 smoker temp was at 233. about 5 hours into the smoke it hit 165 after stalling for around 2 hours. I put it in a foil pan and covered it with foil back into the smoker for about an hour till it hit 190.

I dint let it sit very long cause we wanted to eat and it smelled really good.

The over all taste was great and had a nice smokey flavor to it, I was kind of disappointed in the tenderness though. I wasn't real tender and no were near fall apart.

Meat: Brisket (flat) 4 lbs

Hmmmm---Looks GREAT!

Not tender enough?---Maybe go to 195˚ next time, and a couple hours foiled, toweled, and in the cooler before slicing.

I know----It smelled good & you were hungry

LOL next time start earlier??---Probably just got home from work.
Still looks perfect!
