    I can’t help you - I just felt bad nobody had responded to your post. In my untried opinion I don’t think it would work very well. I think the brisket would be disappointing- but I don’t know that.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn.

    It’s my understanding that the reason we cook brisket low and slow to a temp of about 200 is because when it is cooked in a more standard fashion it is very tough.
