Hey Neil, thanks for putting these brisket chronicles together, they are very informative. Since you probably smoke more briskets in one week than I do in a year, I have some requests if you ever get bored:
Injected vs non-injected briskets with the same smoking technique.
Bark comparison with different salt ratios in the rub.
Low-n-slow vs Low-n-slow / High Heat combo vs pure High Heat
Wrapping vs unwrapped
Short rest (30 min) vs long rest (2 hours plus).
That should keep you busy
Thanks again for these posts!
