    I have done brisket a few time before but wanted to do one on my new Rec Tec Grill.  I got a 12lb brisket from WalMart.  The day before I was going to smoke it I trim a little fat off then coated with my mild rub and Montreal Steak seasoning.  I also injected some beef broth mix with a little of my mild rub and Worcestershire sauce. I wrap and put in the refrigerator for 24 hours.  I started my Rec Tec up at 225 and put it on the grill at 7pm.  The great thing about the Rec Tec is I got to sleep all night.  


    When the IT hit 190 I started checking with a toothpick.  I pulled it at 195 at 10 am.  I then let it rest for 10 min before putting in foil.  I double wrap it and put in a cooler with towels for 3 hours.   


    Meat has a good smoke ring and tasted great and was very moist.  

    The main thing is the wife love it and I got to sleep all night.

    That's a great looking brisket and I'm jealous of the ease of cooking it.  I did one that was totally dry and another that I screwed up by making a bone headed move and cutting off the air flow in my smoker -  but the part didn't burn and stick to the pan tasted great!  Brisket has gotten so expensive that I can't afford to experiment.
