This is the first brisket I've cooked and actually got to enjoy. It was a 13 lb prime packer from Costco. I cooked it Travis method and it was awesome. My wife had never had brisket before and I think she's hooked.
The cook had some issues though. I cleaned my egg and filled it with royal oak. This was the first time using this lump and I knew I was screwed at the start. The entire bag is extremely small pieces and it only burned to temp for 6 hours. I then pulled the meat and finished it in the oven inside the house.
I am getting very tired of buying bags of lump only to find it tiny pieces that won't last for a long cook!!!
