First Brisket

Today I put my first brisket on my LBGE. I could not get a full packer so I went with an 8 lb flat. I prepped last night with a little yellow mustard, DP Cowlick and this morning topped it off with DP Red Eye Express. It is now on the egg at 225 deg with aple and cherry wood for smoke. http://i1250.photobucket.com/albums/hh532/tactical_66/602252c1f4cbf64f69e7c76d170ea40d.jpg

    That kinda looks to me like the point half of the brisket.  If that's the case, it'll be even better.

    After looking at the brisket some more nolaegghead I believe you are correct. It was a point. It turned out well for first attempt. I am already planning the next one.
