    Went to Sams club yesterday and picked up a 6#black angus flat. Fired up the WSM this morning with 3 chunks of hickory and a chunk of peach. Got it rubbed down and ready to get it on the smoker. Gonna run it at 250.

    Before rub:

    After rub

    Just did the basic SPG for the rub. Not sure if I'm gonna foil it or not. Suggestions?

    2 hours in and holding steady. Had a slight hiccup. Lid wasn't completely on when I put the brisket on and the temp spiked to 280. Shut everything and got the temp back down in about 10-15mins. Hope it doesn't affect it too bad.

    Well... I think it's done. Hit it with the thermapen and was reading anywhere 193 and 203 in spots. Letting it rest now. Should I let it rest in the foil with the beef stock I wrapped it in or rest it in a new foil pack without the stock?

    Either way is fine for resting once it's been vented.   Did you pull it from the smoker based on the thermapen readings ?  Or did you do the probe test for tenderness ?

    Yeah I went off the temp. It was a mistake. It was still a little tough. Next time I'll do it for tenderness. Taste was spot on what I wanted, just a little tough still
