I started with a 10# brisket. Did a little trimming then put on a salt , pepper, onion powder & garlic rub. I smoked it at 230 for around 6 hours to get to 165 degrees. I then wrapped it with about 1/2 of a 12 oz stout I had on hand. I let it go until it hit 205 then pulled it off & let it rest for 1.5 hours. I was very pleased with the tenderness & flavor . This won't be my last brisket.
