    Having had marginal success with flats more than one time in a row + group of ~8ppl visiting = my smoking a brisket.

    I have the CharBroil American Gourmet 600 with this brisket stuffed in at an angle and doing all it could not to poke out of the sides (didn't want any part of it over coals).

    I didn't get any before it went in...but here's some Q-view when it was done.  I really need something bigger to smoke in LOL.

    I didn't separate the point until it was rest-time.  I let the point rest with the flat (although already separated).  When it was slicing time, I took the point and chopped it up.  I let the chopped point, about a cup of williamson bros sauce, and about 1/2 cup of the brisket juice simmer for about an hour, drained it off of extra juices (and rendered fat), and proceeded to have slices & sammichs.

    Thx!  I only had 1 days worth of leftovers.  The guests, some of which are from homes that don't 'que' on a regular basis (or ever), went back for 3rd & 4ths o_0

    I thought it was a little dry and not as good as my last one (due to chamber size, air flow, and difficulty maintaining temp when trying to do it in 30* weather)....but guests loved it, so gotta count for somethin.  I gave some to my ex-wife (really dry pieces) to make some Brunswick Stew.  The kids reported that it made her stew incredible.

    I must admit that while pork is wonderful my favorite is the brisket.

    The chopped up point looks excellent!

    It may be the photo, but it looks like you cut the flat with the grain, which would make it a little chewy.

    Either way it sure looks good!
