So this weekend I smoked my first brisket. It was a 7lb brisket that was trimmed, but it still had a good amount of fat on it. I cooked it at 225 with cherry wood and it took about 14-15 hours. I removed the flat, re-seasoned and then put it back on the smoker to make burnt ends. I enjoyed the flavor of the brisket, but overall it came out kind of dry. I assume that I over cooked it. Anyone have other suggestions or is that my problem?
Now my burnt ends came out absolutely fantastic. I was happy that I decided to do them because I was a little bummed about the brisket. Sorry I didn't get any pics of them.
