I finally got around to doing a brisket.  5 pounder from Wally World.  Cooked in the MES at 225, wrapped in foil at 160.... then to 200.  Used a mix of apple and hickory.  A "few" cheap beers got me through the 12 hour smoke.



Salt, Onion powder, pepper, garlic powder and a touch of cayenne pepper.  Injected with a little Italian dressing.



Out at 200.



Looking good......

I set the MES at 225 and never looked back..........Took around 12 hours for a ~5 pounder.
