Thanks for the lesson on the temp. I'll probably do just as you said above. Now I need to go out and buy a thermometer (should have had this already) and a spray bottle for the apple juice. I'm excited - this is gonna be fun.
Just to clarify, you're recommending 275*-300* rather than a lower (225-250*) cooking temp for this, right?
Hey, Steeb--here is another tip. Since you are cooking in your backyard, if you don't want to use a cooler, you can wrap your foiled brisket in a couple of heavy towels, and then just stick it in your micro-wave to rest.
[dont turn it on of course
One of the best uses I have found for a microwave.
