    Doing some smoking this weekend. I've made a few briskets before but never with a sear.

    This brisket is about 6.5 pounds and has a nice layer (1/4" or better) of fat.

    Trying to decide whether to sear and would appreciate any thoughts.

    I would trim some fat 1/4 inch is much, and I like to sear mine.
    Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice, Ron.

    Leaning toward searing, I hope this one isn't too small.

    By the way, I know Minocqua well, have spent a little time at the Thirsty Whale. Also looking forward to the Public Enemies/Johnny Depp movie with the Little Bohemia/Manitowish Waters scenes.

    It should't be.

    Thirtsy Whale was a wild place, lol. When will movie that be available?

    I think the movie comes out July 1. Little Bohemia is towards the end, around 2:05.

    Depp and the movie crew stayed at the Beacons in Minocqua.

    Will let you know how the brisket turns out..
