    Dave cooking a nice brisket is devoting at least half a day of your precious time to it , not sleeping well most of the time and playing the temps right so that in the end someone else can say....... Oh it's nice....... :woohoo:

    It all looks good. Your brisket has beautiful color on the outside. How did the brisket come out ? My concern is overcooking it. The cake looks good too. Sometimes starting with dessert sounds good.

    Enjoy your week end.

    Gary, I always use a drip pan with wine and/or water it helps keeping the brisket moist & tender, when I foil I add a bit of juice as well
