First brisket

Was in the market and the guys were putting out brisket and one of the little fellas caught my eye about two pounds with a nice fat cap. Having never done a brisket, I thought I would try a little one.
Wife is not a big brisket fan but then she wasn't a big puller pork fan BE (before Egg) either. Something tells me that she may change her mind, any bets? Just used JJ's rub...what else and will cook at about 250º.

    Sundown,[p]A nice smoke flavor for your cook is red oak, with hickory being second. If you are up for a mustard BBQ sauce that works very well with brisket, below is a recipe that I got from the FoodTV website - no longer available. The original used the entire jalapeno pepper (seeds and veins). I have wanted to experiment with Jack Daniels in it , but just haven't had the time.[p]Best of luck on the first attempt. The better half will love it.[p]Spin
