    Travis, welcome to SMF. 

    I have never brined a brisket unless I'm making corned beef. I just hit it with Salt, Pepper, Onion and Garlic powders then smoke the flat to 200F Internal temp or until a toothpicks slides right in.   
  3.  Same here I have never brined a brisket just I have always just rubbed it with salt and pepper and then throw it in the smoker between 225-250 and pull it out when it is ready.

  5. [​IMG]  I also have never brined a brisket unless corning in prep for my pastrami. just salt, pepper then mustard of choice then my rub. (check Jeff's rub if you have not yet) then I wrap and set in the deep cooler for a few days then off to the smoker at 225 degrees till I hit 205 -225 degrees. not directions just my method.
