Going to give another one a shot. Last one was too dry. Since it is only around 8 lbs, how do you handle a brisket that isn't a packer? Any tips would be appreciated. Anybody had luck with a Costco flat?

NOT going to be easy, I have not figured it out yet.

I did it this past weekend. The flavor was good, but the texture was off

Commercial injection like Butchers BBQ or Kosmos Q will help tremendously. Also wrap in foil once the internal temp reaches 160-165. Remove at 203. The foil will preserve the moisture given off through the stall and steam the brisket a bit. If you want to restore the firm bark just return it to the smoker naked for a half hour prior to completion, but I wouldn’t worry about that personally. The best wrap IMO is a foil pan with foil on top. Then reserve the drippings and pour over the slices. Good luck.

Keep in mind that most commercial injections contain phosphates which naturally retain moisture. This is the secret to those injections. It’s simply better than just liquid alone. Cheers!
