My first try at a brisket turned out way better than I expected. :thumb:

Looks great, good job! I’ve tried a brisket only once and it was a disaster. I planned on having it for a late lunch this past summer. Filled the hopper with hickory/mesquite blend and put it in my Pit Boss at 10:00pm the night before. Woke up at 6:00am to discover at some point during the night the power had a hiccup and shut off the smoker. Had to toss an $80+ piece of meat right in the garbage, what a waste.

I always thought that it took 12+/- to smoke a brisket (this one was 10 lbs), but this one achieved a 205* internal temp in 7 hours cooking at 250*. I’m learning as I go and got the recommendation from a friend that cooks a lot of briskets for events that 225* might be better, but he said I was on the money with the internal temp.
