No it was not a flat, it went to 198 on the digital thermometer (not sure I trust that). Like I said it was tasty, just not tender or as most as I would have liked. Poke test?

It occurred to me last night that I cut the brisket with the grain and not across! I'm so irritated about this! I went and bought a 12 lbs cut to give it another shot next weekend! Any tips on injection recipes?

Dont mess with it any longer but back when we were doing the comp hobby I liked to inject with FAB P from Joe Ames ingredient store. FAB Award Winning BBQ Marinade
Tried to mix it up according to directions but short it about 6 ozs water which was subbed out with a small can of Pineapple juice. The Pineapple juice seems to make the fat shatter different. The poke test is when you stick the meat with a sharp object to see if its tender. Sorta like Granny did with a pot roast. Some folks like to poke it with a fork and others use toothpicks. I like to use the instant read temp gauge. Dont tear up the meat hardly at all. I dont see much logic of injecting for home eating purposes.

Just remember after cooking to separate the flat from the point. In the original form of the brisket the grains run perpendicular from one another. And just remember there is not a time limit on the meat, it is done when it is done!

I have to say, there are alot of members here that would say "If there are no pictures the cook did not really happen!"
Just a little reminder lol....
