First brisket on the large. I am happy with the results. Very tender and plenty of juice!

    Good looking CAB brisket. Is it from Sam's? I wish my Sam's would get CAB.

    What is the liquid in the pan.

    Did you save me a couple of slices for a samwich?

    Nice cook, looks wonderful. Sure would like some narrative - like how long and at what temp, blah, blah, blah.

    Sorry, I was a little rushed when I posted the pictures ;)

    For the most part the cooking temp was around 224-240. I ended up pulling at 185 because we were running out of time (got a later start than I wanted.) The thicker part of the brisket could have been a bit more tender, but overall, we loved it! This was about a 7 lb brisket and took 10 hours to hit the 185.

    As far as the drip pan, I bought a huge jug of merlot at Sams Club and put that in there. Didnt mix with anything, just pure merlot. You could really taste it in the meat!
