So I don't know if what the exact reason is for this being way way better than any other brisket I've made. I used a Prime grade brisket which I never have used. I trimmed it up better than I have before. Smoked it on my brothers in laws Traeger. I wrapped it in foil at a internal temp of 167. And took it until probe tender which was a IT of 199. Anyway it came out great. I'm always my toughest critic and don't compliment myself but this brisket deserved it. Best I've made and the best I have ever eaten. Everyone that ate it said the same thing.

I thought the bark was still crispy. It didn't get mushy at all.

That's an awesome looking brisket! Care to share your rub and wood used?

Points!

I used 50/50 kosher salt to coarse black pepper. Used Traeger hickory pellets. Can't get much easier than that.

Looks great! I'm a believer in the simple salt & pepper rub myself.
