Thanksgiving Brisket with Q-view

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

    I am thankful that I found this site with all the helpful posts to help me do my first brisket.

    Now on with the show!!

    I started this brisket off using the brisket maranade and rub reciepies that was on the wiki here on this site.  I placed the flat in the maranade for 6 hours and then placed the rub on and set for another 2 hours before placing it in my CJES.  At 5:45pm I placed my 6 pound flat in at 250F and started adding my wood chips.  5 hours later I was at 160F so I foiled and went to bed.  Alarm woke me at 4:30 and I found that the flat was at 195F, so I went back in for an hour and slept till the internal temp was 205F.  I placed the foiled pan in the oven to rest and after 2 hours I started cutting.  It was perfect, the end was still able to slice with just a few pieces falling apart.  The brisket was a success, in my book anyway. 

    Thanks again for all the info that you are willing to share!
