    Hello! It's going to be in the 60s tomorrow in the Omaha Metro sof I stopped at Sams and grabbed a 7.75# flat. This is my first Brisket so I hope all goes well. After a quick trim I hit it with 50/50 kosher salt/course black pepper. It will go in the MES40 tomorrow morning. I'll use my pellet maze with pitmasters choice pellets from Amazen pellets for smoke. Stay tuned!

    3 hours later...

    I feel like it's moving faster then I thought.

    Also my pellets burned up way faster then I thought they should...


    Any thoughts?

    The brisket looks perfect so far.

    I think this is going to be a good one.

    Pulled it after just under 8 hours. It was 201F in the thickest part and 196F at the thinnest. Probe went in like butter. It's now wrapped in a cooler until dinner tonight. Money shots coming soon!

    Time for slicing. One thing I don't like about electric is lake of smoke ring. Tasted great! It was tender and passed the pull test.
