    I used a marinade Spice Cooks emailed me that was excellent. I don't have it in a digital format though. A simple rub is enough. You could slather in mustard first, put the rub on, wrap it and let in sit in the fridge overnight.[p]Another good flavoring option is Elder Ward's Brisket recipe. Did he post it in the recipe section?? I know he posted it on the forum just before Christmas. [p]As far as cooking, I would go 225-250 indirect over liquid filled drip pan. Will take about 2.5-3 hours per pound. You could go ad high as 275 indirect, and still get good results at1.5 hours a pound. Even quicker with Elder's direct method at 275.[p]My preference is 225-250 indirect all the way through. When polder reads 185, do a fork test. Either try lifting the chunk-o-chest up (if you can't lift with a fork, it is done). Or try twisting a fork. If not done, try test again at 190. Sometimes they aren't ready til 200. Sometimes at 185. Depends on the chunk-o-chest.[p]Good luck with it, they are a lot of fun.[p]NB

  • Nature Boy, Thanks for the help NB. Just got back from golf here in sunny FLA, didn't shoot that well, but had a great time. I'll try the archive for EW's post.[p]DK
