Thanks for the rub @Cazzy! I just put it on for the Texas Ole Miss game tomorrow night at 7. Had to slow boat it at 225 grid (which I am not a fan of) but if I didn't, I was getting up at 4 am to start. Centex + 4am = no bueno. Let you know how it turns out

    Texas is gonna kill Ole Miss - they, ummm, suck this year. :)  Wish ya'll were playing LSU.  That would be a game.  Mostly because my brother in San Antonio is a HUGE Texas fan, so, of course, I have to play the foil every chance I get.  Which is every time I talk to him.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    Niiiiiiice!! A Cen-Tex brisket thread?  I'll be engaged with this one. No problem bro!  Just trying to do you the same solid @Village Idiot did for me and paying it forward.  If you love it, do the same for someone with same request!  :) I don't blame you at all as I don't ever envision waking up in the middle of the night.

    Well.....really liked the rub. A little sweeter than I normally like but had some nice heat to go with the sweet. I'll use it again

    The brisket itself sucked. It had zero smoke flavor at all. I can't figure it out but that does happen to me on the egg from time to time. Texture was good, bark was awesome but it tasted like I cooked it in the oven. 15 hours in the egg and no smoke flavor at all. Bummer.

    Oh well, we live to fight another day.

    That is weird.  I wonder what went wrong...

    I assume you used Oak?
