Today I am trying Smokie Okie's packer brisket recipe with Jeff's Naked Rib Rub. Just before searing it I also put on black pepper quite heavy. Mesquite and hickory mix are what a decided to try for this smoke. First I must say I seared this thing to directions. I have no hair left on my hands and singed my eyebrows a bit !!! Had problems getting my heat over 250º, so after I got it there I went an additional hour for a total of 3 hours before flipping it in the pan. Now here it is just flipped.
