You going hot and fast or low and slow? Looks like a great way to start the weekend...with a good rub down!

Watching for smoke.

Sounds good! Let us know how it comes out. I am planning on trying out the BP briskato wrap on tomorrow's cook. Anxious to hear how you like it.

Well I over cooked it :angry5: was dry as heck. Tasted good, but very dry. My wife said the rub I used this time was the best yet :D Guess I will have to adjust fire for the next brisket :dont:

I'm gonna do one tomorrow, did your fire get to hot for to long? or do you have any word of wisdom? to shed on what went wrong?, some times beef broth wrapped in foil will help on the dryness, but it usually turns to a roast beef flavor rather than BBQ :cry:

I think I just waited too long after the butcher paper wrap to check for tenderness. By the time I checked I think it went from tender back to tough, because it never probed like butter :dont: This is the first time I did not use a thermometer to check temp while cooking. I just went with color and the prob test.

Pardon my ignorance, but I didn't know a brisket could go from tough to probing like buttah and then back to tough again. The chances are and I'm betting you still didn't get it to the point where the lignins in the brisket melted and basted the meat and allow the proper rest for the juices to equalize that is necessary with h&f cooking. Some call it carryover cooking. A undercooked brisket will be dry believe it or not. If I'm wrong I'm sure bludawg or the other brisket pros will correct me on this one.
