I know this was discussed before cannot seem to find post on this, (brisket). Just want to try to keep it simple brisket for my first one, my neighbor is bragging about how good his came out on the old fashin grill type. Now I would like to see how mine will come out on the Apex? Thanks!

After checking out the recipe, I copied it, but alot of the items I do not have and I must admit for my first brisket, I would like to try something at level 1, that is a three and sounds a little above my expertise, will try it later when I feel more confident. Can I just put the brisket on the grill after marinate, or something simple?

OK. Just fill your drip pan with water or apple juice. That will bring the temp down so it will cook slower. You will need to refill it at least once during the cooking cycle.

Ingredients are not that important, if you don't have everything for the rub, just use kosher salt, pepper, and some garlic powder. Sometimes keeping things simple is better :)
You don't even need the smoke, the key points are to fill up the drip pan every hour. When the temperature reaches 165-170, wrap it in foil with some liquid, I used Apple Juice because the sweetness offsets the salt in the rub. You could use soda, beer, or even beef broth. The brisket should be done at around 195 degrees or so, probe it in a few places with a bamboo skewer to see if its tender. Its not really difficult, It may sound that way though.
