Brisket: It's what's for dinner



On the WSM, Drum-style (no water pan, fat dripping on the coals.) 5.5lb Choice flat from BJ's. Rubbed with wooster, S/P/G 1:1:1.

Should be pretty good. I'll post the results..

Can't beat cooking on a WSM with no waterpan (once you learn t control temps)... I love the sound (and smell) of the fat dripping down into the coals.

I'm now a huge fan of the wooster /S/P/G rub on brisket. Great smoke flavor. Didn't even use any sauce .. definitely a winner!

It ran around 250 for the first 2.5 hours or so, then it went up to around 300, even with all the vents closed. Entire cook was ~4 hours. Rest 1 1/2 hours.
