HEB has prime brisket on sale right now for $3.29/pound. I picked up a market trimmed 12 pounder to throw on the Ironwood in the morning. This will be my 2nd attempt at doing a brisket on the Traeger. I'm planning on using a simple rub of just kosher salt, pepper, and a little bit of garlic powder. I'll start it off at 235 degrees until it hits 160 and then wrap. I can't decide on foil or butcher paper. That will be a game time decision :) After the wrap I'm thinking 275 degrees until we hit 205. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Here are few photos I taken after trimming it. It's nearly the same thickness all the way now. I put it on at 7:00 this morning. It's sitting about 150 after 3 1/2 hours.

I forgot to take a photo right off the Traeger, but it came out really well! Total cook time was about 7 hours. Wrapping in foil really made a difference on the overall cook time. I think it was done in about a hour or so after wrapping. Another trick I used this time that I hadn't done before it I put a little concentrated beef broth on after wrapping it in foil.

Here's a link to it on Amazon:

I let it rest about 3 hours, so right before we ate dinner I threw it in a pan on low with some of the juices to warm it back up..

And final photo before dinner..

What temp do you normally pull your brisket off at?

When i'm doing chili, i tend to pull off at about 170-180 but other than that 190 and rest for 1.5 hours. As of the chili, i just cut up in cubes then put in pot and let it simmer with the rest of veggies for another 5-6 hours.
