Bark is overrated!
When I cook brisket on my drum, Direct heat NO deflector, I turn them, foil them then cooler them.
Normally 4 hours or less in my drum.
I have a hard time understanding how you can cook a brisket for 14-16 hours unless you have a waterpan or deflector? Longest I ever cooked one was 10 hours (direct) and it was a shoe leathery dog treat!
