I use a wooden skewer and poke the brisket directly from the top. I guess I'm neutral..

Just wow. This is really an informative thread.

Unless, by buying that pellet cooker you are encouraged to cook more often, or having one causes you to feel more confident in firing up your pit, in which case, go for it. As the one truth in your post, cook more often and you will get better.

Did you read the thread that WareZdaBeef started on his method? I can't comment on the result, but, I can tell you there are a lot of food people that love the method he is using. It sure isn't traditional, but, he has an interesting idea.
