       Hey there, everyone. I live just north of San Antonio

       Smoking experience... I've smoked ribs quite a few times, definitely went through some trial and error and settled on a recipe/process I'm happy with. Currently have my first brisket in the smoker.

       I have an electric smoker; a Cajun Injector that I've been happy with so far.

       Question about the brisket... do I have to wrap it in foil around 165 IT? I've seen where some people do and some don't. If I don't wrap it in foil, will the time still be in the ballpark of 1 - 1.5 hrs/pound to get to ~195 IT?

    Hello and welcome to you, I wish someone had seen this earlier.

    I never wrap anything, I just let it do whatever it's going to.

    Every piece of meat is different as to how it cooks.

    The best advice I can give you is to always start smoking 

    long before you think you need it done.

    You can keep it hot for hours in a cooler wrapped up,

    But if you plan for a specific hour and it's not done.

    You see what I'm getting to here.

    The 1 to 1.5 thing is just a very rough estimate.

    Have fun and pictures are nice.

    Welcome to the board! I enjoyed visiting San Antonio in 2005 but after I came home I had accordion music stuck in my head for three days. Oh well the Alamo was on my bucket list and the Riverwalk was a plus.
