    <p />PING carwashmike,
    Here you go jc.
    I took the brisket already trimmed, added rub and then covered with white sugar over night.[p][p]430brisk3.jpg[p]Took a paper towel to remove what little sugar was left. Added just a little more rub. I then took bacon out and got to room temp, just better to work with. Got egg to 225, good clean burning fire. Added cherry chunks, indirect with drip pan with 8 oz. of apple juice.
    Fat cap down and completely covered brisket with bacon.
    Sorry no pic of that.[p]Put on 9am and took off around 8pm. Wrapped in foil for about 1 hour before slicing. Not on the egg. Room temp. I pulled at 195 range.
    Separated point and flat. Put point back on in foil. Very tender burnt ends.[p]73brisket4.jpg[p]I really babied this, as I was having trouble with briskets. Just finished the leftovers tonight, pa was very impressed.
    It was easily my best brisket ever. I'm cooking another this Friday. Just to make sure :)
    Local store doesn't mind slicing for me, but you can get by with a knive it is so tender.[p]HTH[p]Mike

  • PING carwashmike, just so you know. If you follow the recipe in Dr. BBQ's cookbook, the brisket comes out incredible also!!

  • Car Wash Mike, that is a wonderful looking brisket. In fact it looks so good, it just cost you 2 shots on the links. Please cook and post more.........:<)

    lol, COOL! have fun![p]phillip

  • Car Wash Mike,[p]Great looking results. Been egging for awhile now, but just tried my first brisket 2 weeks ago using brown sugar (turbinado) instead of white. The sugar does make a huge difference, I agree.[p]Please do tell if you have a recipe for a good tomato-based, Texas style red sauce for beef brisket. If I can find an interesting sauce concoction, then it is a brisket weekend fro me too.[p]Thanks in advance.[p]Just-Dave
