    Well keeping this a bit short because I'm on my phone. Last weekends brisket turned out great.

    It was a usda choice packers cut. I keep mine whole and ended up injecting the fat separating the 2 cuts with beef broth.

    Ended up tossing it on at about 10pm. I stayed up until 2pm and set an alarm for 8:30. It was already up to 182 at that point was kinda hoping it would have stalled out a bit so I could go back to sleep. I wrapped it and put it back on tell it hit 203. That was at 10am.

    Party started at 5pm so it stayed in the foil got wrapped in some bath towels and went in a pre heated cooler for 7 hours.

    I separated the flat and point. Wrapped the point backup and placed it in the cooler. The flat got cut into strips. I will say it's hard to cut it up without eating it.

    The point was latter placed in the fridge and eaten over the course of the week.

    All in all it turned out great. Im sorry I didn't have pictures but I do have another one @16lb that's getting smoked next week.

    Some how this did not stay short.

    Welcome from another Michigander. I live in the Brighton area (between Ann Arbor and Flint) but my parents have a place in Boyne City on Lake Charlevoix and I will be up there for a 3 days this weekend for Boyne Thunder. Traverse City is fantastic and we sometimes make our way over there for a day trip. Glad to have you in the pit.

    Detroit is the most dangerous city in the entire USA per capita, according to this site: http://patch.com/michigan/birmingham...st-dangerous-0 although I make no claims as to which poll is most accurate.

    Welcome from another MI new guy. Diagonally south of you, just north of the town where the Tigers play. Or the Murder Capitol of Michigan. Whichever 😜

    Welcome. I also kicked into high BBQ gear when I went virtually carb free last fall. As my GF would say, meat is my life.

    Everyone has different opinions on brisket. Having cut my BBQ teeth in Austin, my rub is just salt & pepper, fairly even amounts. I don't inject. I wrap when I've got a good bark formed, not necessarily at the stall. On my last good brisket, which was a 6 lb flat, I wrapped at 185 and it hit 205 in 90 minutes. Whole packers can be tricky since you've usually got such different thicknesses and fat content. I separate them and take them both to 203-205 individually.

    Good luck. Take pictures.

    I hear you Spin. I'm not a big fan of mondo thick chewy bark on pork butts, but for brisket when it's sliced thin you NEED that thin sliver of bark on each slice to take it from 7 to 10!

    I live in Farwell, west of Clare 6 miles or so. TC is my wife & I's favorite MI city, we're there several times/yr. In fact, might be headed up there Mon to see Tonic & Toad the Wet Sprocket.

    Lol, I forgot you grew up in Gladwin, so did I. Small world. Two Pitmaster Club Members who grew up in the same small town, roughly the same time period. I know we had this conversation a year ago...Forgive me, there's been a lot of posts and a lot of meeting people since then.
