Default My first brisket on WSM

Started with a 13.5 lb pre trimmed , around 10 after.

Lit the chimney at 0545, then started trimming and let the cooker stabilize.

I started the cook around 0700.

It's a free app called "BBQ Remote" programmed for the CyberQ.

I forgot to take before pics, which is okay. It's hard to trim with 2 left hands full of thumbs.

Are you cooking to a temp? Most good brisket cooks around here cook until it is probe tender in the thicket part of the flat no matter what the IT is.

No, I'm probing for tenderness. It's very tender in some spots, but gives a little resistance towards the bottom in others on the flat. I think its close, but not quite.

Any suggestions? In other words, does it look okay?

It probed tender in the thick part of the flat, and it's in the cooler.

pulled it out and sliced. It's pretty good for my first time, but the bottom of the thin part of the flat is a little tough, but not too bad. Most of it is very moist and tender.
