Thought I would start my brisket a little early that way we can munch on it all weekend. After trimming some of the fat, it came in at around 10-11 lbs. and I might add, is a grass fed beef brisket. Good grass fed beef can be purchased at Mcallen Ranch Beef. they are from Mc Allen,Texas and last time I ordered they shipped for free. My pit is a modified(with a propane burner) side smoker, I am using soaked hickory. I rubbed the brisket down with homemade dry rub last night and took her out this morning to warm up to room temp as I was getting the pit ready, Put her in about 9am, Been 4 hrs. just sprayed her down with a little apple juice mixture, now it's just a waiting thing, will update later, Right at 220 deg. Okay 6 hrs. later, IMT @147deg. started mopping, Okay after 13.5 hrs. wrapped in foil and towels and put in ice chest, up this morning for the final pic. Thanks for all the comments!!
