Default Hot & Fast Brisket

Finally got around to trying the hot & fast method this past weekend. Previous briskets were all done low and slow w/mixed results.

The brisket was 11.5 lbs before trimming. Rubbed a mustard paste then coated with Mad Hunky and Big Rons Hint of Houston. In the fridge to rest over-night.

Got the smoker to 300 and placed the brisket on at 630 am sunday morning. I placed a drip pan under the brisket which contained 1 cup of strong coffee, 1 can of beef broth, 1/8 cup worshy, a couple tablespoons of Big Rons, 1 onion sliced and 4 garlic cloves.

Here's the time line:
730 IT 117*
830 IT 147*
930 IT 168* Foiled with about 1/2 cup of AuJus
1030 IT 193*
1130 IT 204* Pulled and wrapped in towel and into the cooler for a 1.5 hr rest.

Pros: Very Tender and Juicy. Nice flavor.
Cons: Mushy Bark (expected due to foiling)
Next time will go entire cook w/no foil

Here's a few pictures.

Thanks for looking.
