Wasn't bad, but we weren't that into it. That being said, it might have been user error, so I wouldn't be opposed to trying it again. I left the fat cap on the brisket, so I'm sure that helped with any dryness. It was still in a neat strip since I cooked it with that side up, so I cut it off before shredding meat back into the sauce before serving. I had to add the very outer edge of fat back in because that is where the spices were on that 1/2 of the meat. Used only 2# brisket, but by accident didn't decrease the amount of rub (so that might have been problem #1). Also accidentally forgot to rub with liquid smoke 1st before dry rub (so that might have been problem #2). Cooked exactly in time stated. I only used 1/2 the BBQ sauce & worst mix (which is where I wound up putting the smoke after I realized I goofed). The flavor was pretty intense... too saucy...too spicy for the kids but they managed to eat. I really was busy doing other things in the kitchen (canning), so this was a quick enough & simple enough way to get dinner on the table when I knew I wouldn't feel like preparing dinner after a day in the kitchen. Like I said, it might have been a combination of factors, plus a really spicy/smoky bottled sauce... I would try again, but maybe a sweeter bottled sauce.
