    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?

    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...


              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 !

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
