    Rub. Weber charcoal kettle, hickory for smoke, pan of water to keep it moist, and temp kept between 200-250F.

    Five hours' worth of smoking, 13 hours wrapped in foil, another hour's worth of direct smoke. Another hour at rest in foil.

    Juicy, pick up a slice and it falls apart under it's own weight tender.

    Not bad for a first effort.

    ABSOLUTELY!! Good BBQ doesn't need no sauce.

    That's what I recall for brisket, and omitted sauce. I like a little sauce on my ribs though.

    I like ribs both ways. If they are juicy, I can leave off the sauce.

    Oh my! Chilled, it holds it's shape well. This evening, I did up some au jus, sliced up some brisket and dropped it in. Sliced some round French Rolls... buttered 'em, and a little horseradish on. Fished the slices from their bath, and they fell apart as they went to the rolls. Made for an amazing sammich!

    A little tater salad on the side, and cold beer... life IS good sometimes.

    Thank you. The challenge, was, learning how to do it with a 22.5" Weber kettle.

    Smoking one now, 5 hours with dry pecan wood, then 8 hours at 210 in the oven, then cool to room temp, then fridge over night, slice up in the a.m., then back in the oven at 250 for 4 hours, melts in your mouth
