I have a little different experience than others here. On the egg when I've wrapped brisket in foil it comes out too moist. Super tender and flavor is great, but it is almost dripping wet on the outside with no bark. Still good, but not a traditional smoked brisket look or feel.

Try pink butcher paper instead of foil.

I'll try that sometime. The last few I've done I've gone with no wrap and no water pan. Comes out with great crust and very moist.

Although I have a BGE, I normally do my briskets in my side firebox stick burner. On the BGE, are you putting in the conveggtor accessory to prevent direct heat?

FWIW, I run my smoker at 250, wrap in pink butcher paper at an IT of 170, pull it off at 203. Let it rest for at least an hour. My best briskets Iíve let rest in a cooler for over an hour, and they are incredibly moist.

No need to get up at 4:30 to do one. If you cook it at 275 to 300, you can have it done in 5-6 hours depending on brisket size. I like to cook mine on the BGE in a tin pan, indirectly. Cook for about 3 hours uncovered in the pan. Add a can of coke and a cup or two of apple juice then cover the pan with foil. Cook about 2 more hours then check the temp. You can pull it anywhere from 185 to 205 and will get a good product. My preference is on the higher end. Then let it rest anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Should be good to go.

How long you cooking it for? I thought about setting the egg up right before bed, setting alarm to throw it on the back to bed.. I just donít want to leave it on too long..
