    This is my second brisket, and first Prime I've ever done, started out at 14.77lbs, I didn't weigh it after trimming but I'd guess it is around 12lbs now. Plan is 250-275 range all night and hoping to eat around 3pm tomorrow, using a combo of Oak and Hickory. I am still undecided on wrapping, I think I'm going to see how it's going around 8am and make a decision on if it needs to be wrapped at that point to hit my feast time.

    Trimmed and seasoned.

    Brisket on. Had to do a bit of work to fold up the center to get it on and it's not perfect but C'est la vie.

    I'll keep this updated through the night/tomorrow.

    That looks like a really nice piece of Prime meat.
    Even through the rub I can see how nicely it's marbled... Point for Prime.

    Now show us the great finished product!
    Looking forward to it.

    This is how we are at 8am. Sitting at 170 since 3am, so I decided to bite the bullet and wrap. I'd really like to get some butcher paper and see for myself how different that comes vs foil vs naked. [​IMG]

    Alright, almost there! Off the Egg and resting until I wrap it back up and FTC until it's eatin' time.

    I think I did a better job letting it keep going until truly probe tender vs my first attempt. We will see how it goes.

    And the result!

    Not bad, I need to work on my slicing skills for brisket, went a bit too thick on these.

    Flavor and texture were right where I want them, guests all went back for seconds so that's a good sign in my book.

    Looks delicious!  Costco Prime is my preferred go-to so far.  Getting ready to pull the remaining flat off the smoker now, used the point for burger meat yesterday.  Great job!

    That's ok, they still have the exact same price now.  I bought one Wednesday to smoke overnight tonight.  I love Costco meat.
