Everything looks pretty darn good to me. I'm thinking you might want to move the meat more in the center of the smoker. But thats just my pennies.

Any advice on the best way to serve the drippings??

Do you have anything in the pan with the drippings? We like to put beef stock, onions, carrots, garlic, & celery in the pan. Then when the brisket is done strain the juices, de fat them & pour over the sliced brisket.

It's probably late, but good luck.  Just want to post this so I get in on the conversation.

Hey! Just joined, love this place already! Nothing much beats a smoked brisket, and that one's off to a good start. 

The one in my av I did Memorial Day.
