Brisket off the medium BGE

Got a 5.5 brisket flat from the local Sam's Club. Injected it with some marinade ( beef broth, Boyd's beef base, and some Lee and Perrins ) and let it sit overnight. Put some homemade rub on it and smoked it one the egg for 8 1/2 hours at 250-270 degrees. I foiled it once it hit 165 degrees. Then into the cooler wrapped in towels for 2 hrs. It was yummy.

  • I've done 3 so far and all have turned out well. For me I think to inject and then foil at around 165 is the key. Moist and tender. Try to pick out the most flexible piece of meat.

  • I used a combination of hickory, mesquite, and pear chips just at the beginning of the cook.

    Looks great and is very similar to my method, I usually make flats do to availability or price.  =D>
