Looks great! What run do you use? In my next competition I am using a rub consisting of 3 cups of Plowboys Bovine Bold combined with 1 cup of sugar to get a nice bark. I am also using Butchers BBQ Injection mixed with beef stock.

I always make my own rubs. Usually chili powder, garlic, kosher salt, paprika, pepper, brown sugar, ground mustard powder (this one I just smeared with normal yellow mustard).

I rubbed the non-fat side of these briskets, but not the fat side. I also made the executive decision to smoke them fat-side-up.

I don't know anything about injecting. Might look into that. Thanks.

I smoke mine fat side up too, but I will score the fat criss-cross with a knife and smear with yellow mustard and put rub on both sides. Here's my rub recipe if you like one with a little heat to it.

Spicy Brisket Rub

4 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
4 Tablespoons Paprika
1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
4 Tablespoons Turbinado Sugar
1 Tablespoon McCormick's Ground Chipotle Pepper
1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Onion Powder

Thanks. I'll be making these again soon. I'll try this.

BTW, how much do you guys pay for your briskets. I paid about $5.50 a pound.

I use a Pit Minder E-Temp from BBQ Guru and smoke em at 210 till they reach 195 internal. This takes about 2 hours per pound of brisket, so I average 14-15 hours.

The pit minder lets me do other things while my brisket or pork butt cooks to perfection.

Thanks! The DigiQ was my first purchase after buying the BGE.. ;-) I use it every time.
