Smoke flavor non existent but I'm used to that now with a pellet smoker.How did the brisket turn out? Definitely a nice smoke ring and doesnt look dry.
I did not follow your write to a T but I have it saved and will next time.
My butcher paper didn't come up so I had to fool and it ruined the bark.
It was just OK..
Pork was better cause I never wrapped it.
11 lbs brisket took like 6 hours at 225
