How to Make It
Start with a high quality packer brisket. Trim and remove excess fat from the fat cap. Season generously with dry rub. Heat smoker to a temperature between 225˚and 235˚. Place the brisket on the smoke rack fat side down and maintain steady temperature until the brisket reaches 150˚. Remove brisket and wrap fat side up tightly in heavy duty aluminum foil.
Return brisket to smoker or indoor oven at 225˚to 235˚. Continue cooking until internal temp of brisket reaches 200˚ to 205˚. Remove the brisket from the heat and store in a cooler for 1 to 2 hours. After the brisket rests, remove it from the foil. Heat the smoker between 250˚ and 260˚ and return the brisket fat side up for about 25 to 30 minutes before serving.
