Brisket Question
 
I was wondering if you could help me out when it comes to brisket. I have never smoked a whole brisket before. Does the smaller section get dried out while the thicker part gets up to temp? Also, which part is used for burnt ends?

Thanks for your help, Hugh

I was gonna reply, but gtr gave you a great place to start.
Have fun with your brisket.

Don't worry about the thinner part drying out while the thicker part cooks. Briskets do not follow the rules of other beef roasts. In fact, oddly enough...the point, which is the thicker part, will finish to tenderness before the thinner part (the flat) will.

This is a must read. That being said, I now do mine in an alum pan, injected, at about 250. On my WSM a 13-14 pounder takes about 10 hours.

After 7-8 hours I foil the pan and let her go, and take it off at no more than 205.

Foil and wrap in towels and into the microwave for about 1 hour. Just to keep it warm, not nuke it.

Slice it and enjoy. BWT the point is often used for burnt ends. I think that's a waste of good meat as it is usually the best part.

The link was great. The hard part is going to be finding a day where I can spend over 10 hours tending to the smoker. I'm definetly waiting until the weather warms up.

What kind of cooker are you using? If you have something that can be set once at temp and left alone for a while, you may consider doing an overnight cook.
