    My first attempt at a brisket.  5 pounder took about 6 hours.  A little over done and dry.  But the flavor was on the money.  Next time, I will pull at 170 instead of 185 for slicing.

    Here is a link the the SMF Album:  First Time Brisket Album

    Here is the money shot!  Sorry Bear!  I'm not a fan of rare meat.

    By the way, the WSM has been running steady at 225 for 12 hours now and is STILL going strong.  18 lb bag of Trader Joe's natural wood briquettes - $6.99.  I'll let you know when the temp falls under 200.

    I believe so.  The package did not specify but it was only 5 lbs.

    But is sure looked good on the plate!!

  7. Looks great!! Did you let it rest before slicing? Looks like all the juice is on the platter.

    Wrapped it in foil and a towel and put it in a cooler for about 2 hours.
