    Wrap a flat brisket?

    I am doing my first brisket on the PBC tomorrow. It's a 6 lb flat. Do I bother wrapping this or just let it cook till done?
    Thanx,

    I would defiantly wrap that baby. Especially if its below Prime. I would also throw some low sodium beef broth in there with it. Maybe a half to a full cup. Wrap it tight in Heavy Duty aluminum foil. Good luck. The PBC is awesome for the BRIZ!!!

      jdrozd, I believe Spinaker has it right wrap it after the first several hours in the smoker. Enjoy, Dan

        So it worked out pretty well. I used meat heads beef rub, wrapped at 160 which took about 2 1/2 hours and it was at 200 at 4 hrs total. Temps were between 275-300. Do you normally inject when doing a brisket?

          If its Prime I never do. But anything below Prime, I always inject.

            jdrozd , I always inject briskets using Butcher's Prime Brisket Injection

            I also got some of their Butcher's BBQ Phosphate Injection to mix with whatever solution I want to inject with. It's a good idea because their other injection products contain a lot of salt.

              This is sooo funny. I was about to post about trying my first brisket flat and you beat me to it!

              My flat is 6 1/2 lbs and almost round...

              So...

              1. smoke until internal is 160
              2. wrap in foil with a bit of low sodium beef broth ( its' choice )
              3. cook until internal is 200


              4. rest how long?

              thanks crew !

                Hey sfbay, I have done a few flats that size the same way you are, and I have let them sit in the cooler for at least an hour.

                Beautiful day in the Bay Area, huh?

                  It was a beautiful day today!

                  My kids had sports early on and they both had fun.

                  Family night tonight, then tomorrow is BBQ and football !
