Couldn't find a 'whole' brisket - got 2 flats at Costco - one 3.33 pound and one 4.5 pound. Decided to cook the small one first to practice - I got lucky doing my first 3 butts but I think brisket may be tougher. It is rubbed and sitting in the fridge. I'll put it on at about 8 AM - cook it for 7 hours - let it rest for 2 hours - eat! I'll take photos. Next weekend I'll do the other one with my BBQ Guru DigiQ. Ordered it today from Fred's at about 2 PM and he already had it shipped by 5! UPS says it'll arrive (standard ground) Monday! What service - of course, DC is really close to PA, but for him to get it out today is amazing. I look forward to my first butts using the DigiQ - I've read so many good things about it in the forum.
So, wish me luck - a small flat tomorrow with no DigiQ - then a pork loin and the larger flat next weekend with the DigiQ. This forum is great - it sure has us eating better around my house!
