First brisket going to be tomorrow...
Picked up a 5 lb flat at Costco today. Was going to get a packer but not home tonight so could not start until tomorrow morning. Going to go with S&P rub for my first. Then plan on going with a 275-300 dome (over a drip pan with Spaten Optimator, Beef Broth, Onions, "what's this here sauce" and garlic and cayenne) until I hit about 165 internal. At that point I am going to place the flat into the drip pan with only about half exposed (a la Travis method). When it gets to 195 I will probe until tender. Then FTC until dinner. I plan on posting pics of the process and results. Hope I remember... :-D
Wish me luck!
