    I still haven't tried a brisket but see them at Publix all the time.  Let us know how it turns out.  Might be my turn next.

  • The flats are supposed to be the trickiest cut to smoke, vey unforgiving.  I have made to attempts and the first one was so tough we gave it to the dogs.  The second was better but still not that melt in your mouth brisket.  Keep trying, you'll get the hang of it.  My next one will be a packer cut for sure.

    I've only done one flat, using the Travis method. It came out OK, not great, but it was my first brisket. The whole packers I've done have come out much better. I think it's generally accepted around here that flats are quite a bit more difficult. Anyway, don't despair, we all learn from our mistakes and they're probably as important to post about as our victories.

  • From my newbie experience and because of expensive brisket ($6/lb in Ottawa) - I use the Texas crutch method after I hit 160 - 170 internal temp.
    I find that both times my briskets came out very moist - the bark was also ok, because I put back on indirect grill to finish off things.
    Foil pan with some beef broth tightly covered with foil till internal of 190 - 200. Take out and place back on indirect grill till around 205 then ftc.
