    Fired up the ol drum this weekend for a little smoke action.... Brisket was rubbed with a dirty dalmatian and smoked with hickory chunks for roughly 9 hours at 275. Probably my best brisket to date as far as tender and flavor.

    Hey DC,

    Did you wrap the brisket?  Just curious because I have wanted to do a brisket on my drum but I am in the research process at the moment.  Thanks!

    Yes if it stalls I will crutch it. But I found once wrapped in foil it breaks the stall fast. Just be careful not to over cook watch temps close. I don't know how you have your UDS set up but I have a Old Smokey bottom charcoal plate ( the bottom of the old smokey ) as a heat deflector. On my long cooks I do use a aluminum pan with water on top of the deflector.

    Mine is just a two rack direct heat.  I have been meaning to put a plate in it because it will char the bottom of ribs slightly after about 5 hrs and I hope to do away with that.  If brisket wasn't so damn expensive I would just throw it the UDS direct heat with fat side down and see what happens but I really don't want to screw it up.
