The brisket, I'm happy to say, after a long slow cooking time came out great.
Excellent smoke ring and tenderness throughout,
Slicing it before dinner after it had cooled, we then reheated it and served it to us and out two guests.
It didn't need any BBQ sauce at all and was great straight and served with roasted potatoes and it was highly complimented.
The sad part - there's absolutely no leftovers - it was gone and gone fast.
