My daughter wanted to invite her boyfriend and his dad over for dinner, and begged for some Q! Who am I to refuse? I did another brisket. Got an nine pound cut from Sams. Rubbed her down, and smoked at 230F. I placed a foil tray of apple juice on the grate below the meat(in addition to the water bowl). When she hit 160F I double foiled, pouring in some of the heated apple juice and drippings. Left it in the smoker until it hit 197F. I was looking for the borderline between slicing and pulling. I wanted slices, but wanted them extra juicy and tender. Yup, I hit it right! I also did two racks of baby backs done with the 2-2-1 method. I mopped some sauce on them about 20 minutes before pulling. Boyfriend and his dad were impressed, my family was also very happy.
