I usually wrap in foil the first few hours then unwrap for remainder once meat starts to sweat. Got a new little brinkmann smoker that has water pan in it. Im wondering if that will provide enough moisture. It is a small smoker, im guessing about 18" diameter. Will probably hold up to 6lb brisket or maybe 2 4pounders.

I smoke 4 hours, then place on foil, add liquid and wrap. I use commercial heavy foil and double wrap it. It is called the Texas Crutch. You can Google it... cheers

Out of foil first then foil if you want/have to.

I like cooking them unwrapped the whole time if I can.

Smoke 5 hrs at 180-200. put in a pan and seal with foil, in the oven at 210-220 until internal temp hits 202 (about 5 hrs).

smoke first here too. If you wrap it first, you will cook the external part, then when you unwrap, it won't absorb the smoke very well.

PMK is right. You need to smoke the brisket before you cook it. Once the meat reaches 212* it is done smoking and begins cooking, so get the smoke ring in there first, then wrap it and finish it at 250*.

I cook unwrapped the entire cook, (8-12 yrs depending), then wrap tight and put in cooler to rest. You guys that are placing your briskets in a pan and covering with foil are missing out on some of the juices you could be reabsorbing during the rest. up
