Well, here it goes. My first try at a brisket. 6.7 lbs with a great fat cap. I threw some bacon over the thicker end just to make sure it gets covered too. Went in at 6:15 this morning into the Brinkmann gasser cabinet smoker. Been holding 224 since I put it in. We'll see what happens once the sun starts to beat down on that cabinet. It usually sits at 180 degrees just with the sun hitting it, so it just sips the gas! We're hoping to slice this puppy up for dinner tonight. If it doesn't turn out, we've got burgers to char as a backup. Keep your fingers crossed!
