firt time doing a brisket. Wife picked up the wrong thing but thought what the heck I'll try it. I had already put my rub on it that I use on pork and chicken when I read that you need to soak it before you cook it because of the salt. Well I didn't and since I was out of rub I thought I'd see what happens. By the way my rub has very little salt and more of a sugar base so I hope it offsets. Gona be coooking it at 225 till it gets to 170 then I'm going to wrap it till 200. Then rest and so on. I'll post more pics at the half way point.
