Thanks Aaron Franklin and Griffin!

I did the Franklin method (only saly & pepper). I must say, I don't think I will do it another way again. Great flavor, juicy and smoked well. I used pecan and mesquite for smoke. Cooked at 250 until it hit 190 To FTC. Special thanks to Griffin for the push to do this.

    I did the same 2 weeks ago. I've seen the light. I used hickory. It was divine.

    Looks righteous. Did you use the 16 mesh black pepper or just regular coarse ground? My next one will be done this way.

    I used my spice grinder to grind whole peppercorns until they looked right. Some fine ground, some halves.

    Did the same this weekend and I agree great turn out. Will probably do all the other brisketstandard the same way.

    Will be conducting a seach next, but....

    What is the ratio of salt to pepper that you guys are using?

    Google search says 50/50 if anyone else is looking for the answer.

    A couple of questions.. 1. What cut was this brisket? 2. How long did you FTC? 3. Did you inject the brisket with anything? I am thinking that I will use this method for my first brisket cook.
    Persistence and determination are omnipotent!

    Looks terrific!  I'll be in the Austin area this weekend.  Looking forward to paying Mr. Franklin another visit if I get the chance.  ;)

    1. it was a 6 lb packer. 2. FTC'd for approx 1 hour. 3. No injection

    Best brisket I've done...and I've gone through about 30.
