    Cooked this last weekend in the MES 40, and it was delicious! Didn't have a good smoke ring (I didn't ensure the amps was lit properly, my fault) but the flavor was incredible, it was juicy, and it got rave reviews (and the left-overs were gobbled up for days)

    I used Jeff's rib rub on this, and my 13 yr old son loved the flavor. Yummy!

    On to the pics:

    230 Degrees in the MES "40

    AMZN pellet smoker filled with hickory

    Maverick ET-732 kept the temp perfect!

    Brisket hit 170, and I double foiled it with about 4 ounces apple juice mixed in with 1 ounce Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.

    Pulled it off at internal temp of 198 degrees.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

    Double wrapped in towels, and put in a cooler for 2 hours. When I opened it up...wow.

    (Yes, I cheated and took a few bites here and there, before slicing)


    Sliced up. 

    Like I said, not a great smoke ring, but the flavor was incredible and very tender/juicy!



    Will do this again! [​IMG]

    Looks great, don't worry about the smoke ring with a watt burner. [​IMG]

    Man that's one nice looking brisket [​IMG]

    Thanks for the Qview [​IMG]

  8. I don't think that could be any juicier. Rings are nice but a great smoke flavor and tenderness/juiciness rule.

    Yeah, it WAS juicy and had a great flavor, so I'll take that over a "ring" any day.  Woooot!
