Ok campers, get ready to get up at 4am to make a 7pm dinner. But what a dinner! Holy amazeballs, home made brisket is good.
When making this, i suggest you follow the brisket plan. I do this on a big green egg, ymmv on other cookers.

|1/3 cup||ground black pepper|
|6:30 pm||Make rub w/ salt & pepper|
|7 pm||Trim brisket (many sites can help)|
|7:15 pm||Rub and stash in fridge|

|8 pm||Go to bed|
|4 am||Wake up|
|4:03 am||Start coals for smoker|

|4:30 am||Add wood chunks|
|4:31 am||Add place setter|
|4:32 am||Add drip pan and fill with water|
|4:33 am||Put grill on top and brisket on that|
|4:33 am||Close it up and wait 4-7 hours|
|11:33 am||Once you push past the stall, wrap in butcher paper|
|Sometime afternoon||Meat is at 203, evac, wrap in blanket, stash in cooler|

I didn’t use enough rub. More rub.
I might try putting it fat side down on the egg next time.
