Thought I would Bring this thread back to life....I haven't been around for a while and I'm way out of practice but here is my input....
CAB Choice packer 8.5-11.5lbs I cut it down to just the flat and trim the edges to fit the box prior to cooking
I make my own injection
Suckle Busters Comp with added Koser salt and black pepper for the rub
Fat side down @300
Wrap in pan with beef broth @3 hour mark
5-6 hr total time with an internal of 205-215 or until the temp probe slides in like butter
Rest in cambro for three hours, out and slice at start of turn in window
I use a 50/50 blend of Post Oak and Mesquite on brisket but will change depending on the region I cook in.

This is an old pic I have from a few years back. I used to leave a temp probe in the brsket through out the cook. You can see the hole it left in the finished product in the pic.

We need to bring this thread back. Has anyone changed their methods? Personally I still cook the same, and it works for me. Have changed my rubs around and now lean towards a more peppery taste with a touch of sweet.

My brisket hasn't hit in a while... but in sticking to everything, may work on flavor profile, but that's it.

Need some input please. If you cook hot and fast does it take longer to cool down I heard that some store HF brisket for 5-6 hours before cutting. Also, How many (if any) drip their sliced brisket back in the natural juices from the foil when boxing to turn in. Does dipping help at all?

I don't need any brisket juice after slicing to be honest, seems moist enough to me, plus I usually don't have much juice sitting at the bottom of my wrapped brisket either.
I cook H &f, only rest from 1-3hrs, but yes, the longer the rest the better, but I don't usually do over 4 hrs for comps.

The key is for it to probe through like butter before resting.

Great thread guys! I am doing 1st my cook off this weekend in Benbrook so this has been real fun to read with GREAT tips!

One question that has recently come into my brain is wrap in foil or butcher paper? I have always done foil then saw that Franklin guy do butcher paper and thought...hhhmmmm?

Thanks!

Here is a question for the revere flow guys, do you have any issues getting a good smoke ring? I had an opportunity to cook on one this past weekend and was surprised that two briskets had very little ring where normally my briskets have a very nice and distinct ring. Will say this too though, i was very impressed with the way it cooked on very little fuel and maintained nice even temps all day.

Always butcher paper. There is just as much juice in butcher paper,.. but it breaths so your meat doesn't taste like a roast. I got a 1000' roll 2' wide hanging next to the beer fridge. :cheers: All Q gets the paper. The foil stays in the kitchen with momma. :P Try it out if you get a hankering,.. it's all I do now.

Unless you're using butcher paper with sizing ( which isn't reccomended) there is no way it will hold as much liquid as foil.
I am not dissing butcher paper but the reason some folks have gone to the paper is so the bark tightens up because of less juices and steaming that occurs with foil.
Personally I pan my briskets and like the juices that butcher paper cannot give me, but to each his own :D.
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.

RWBTEX, I have cooked on my reverse flow smoker for more than 3 years now and get a good solid 1/4" smoke ring on my briskets, now if you're looking for that real smoky BBQ flavor, mine does not do that, I think mainly because of where I positioned my exhaust at the upper right hand portion of my tank instead of at grate level...but more importantly, at 250 (center of the lower grate about 5 inches above the RF plate), most briskets are butter tender in 7 to 8 hours max. The benefits of having the RF plate always producing the radiant heat really cuts down on my cook times with the larger cuts....
