Default Brisket w/ Kosmo's Q injection

I was lucky enough to get a sample of Kosmo's Q beef injection. http://kosmosq.com/

This is my third brisket, and while the first two were tasty, they weren't as melt-in your-mouth tender as I would have liked.

A lot of that had to do with my inexperience with briskets, but I wanted to try something new..

This injection put me over the top. 3 lb flat, 4 hours in the smoke and 2 more in foil..

Very happy with the results..

I mixed up 3/8 cup to 1 cup of water, which is half the recipe on the package, but I only injected about half of that..

Pardon me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't look like you are slicing it perpendicular to the grain of the brisket. That makes a HUGE difference in the tenderness factor. By the pictures it looks like you are at about a 45 degree angle instead of a 90 degree with the grain.

That looks like a pretty good cook to me! I almost picked up a small flat this morning but went with the chuck instead. Now you are seriously making me regret that decision.

OK, now I understand . I was just wondering how you managed to use the whole 3/4 cup mix + 2 cups liquid in that little flat .
