Default Performer Brisket

This is my first post here at BB Brethren and also my first brisket.

(Yesterday afternoon)
I started with a Packer between 9 and 10 lb's that I picked up at Publix supermarket. The price I believe was $4.65 per lb. I decided instead of a traditional rub to go with something different. I took a handful of fresh Rosemary and another of fresh Thyme and added a cup of Olive oil (could be more as I didn't measure) and blended it up. I then added a few garlic cloves and a liberal amount of black pepper to the mixture and blended some more. The Brisket was then placed into a 2.5 gallon ziplock and the herb mixture was added. After removing excess air in the bag, I zipped it up and did my best to evenly distribute the mixture onto the brisket. Package was placed in refrigerator until morning. This herb mixture has been my favorite for steaks for years so I figured it couldn't suck for Brisket.

(Today)
I woke up at 5am and pulled brisket out and gave it a sprinkle of salt and let it sit while I fired up the grill. The Brisket was on the grill and doing it's thing by 5:30 at 250 degrees and a liberal amount of Apple wood chips.
Temperature has been consistent and pictures were taken at 10:30 am or 5 hours.

More updates to come

2:30 update

The Brisket has now been on the Performer for ~9 hours. Temps on the flat are around 165F and just over 170F on the point. The flat still has a good amount of penetration resistance with the temp probe and I presume that I am on the stall. Updated pictures posted below. It sure does smell good.

Be patient, and stay out of the smoker as much as you can.

Brisket likes a 2 hour rest prior to slicing, so take that into time consideration.

Welcome neighbor! Cook looks like it is going very nicely. Make sure you keep it going until it probes tender!
