doing my first brisket today put it on at 7:30 and is a 7lber( label said whole brisket but i cant tell a thick side from the thin side so i am assuming it is a "whole flat"????? any way i need a mopping sauce for it or is it not recommended????
Mops are in order. I use a 3 to 1 mix of apples juice and Captain Morgan's Original Spiced Rum. I have also used bourbon in place of the rum. The sugars in the juice, rum, and bourbon will caramelize and add to the bark.

It's a matter of personal preference. Experiment a little, you'll find out what you like.

Hope this helps!

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Like Meowy said, Experament
I use Jack and pineapple or apple . A good dark beer. Capn and pineapple.
