After trimming your briskets fat layer down to about 1/4 inch and removing any large membranes or "silverskin", rub generously with olive oil and rub in your spice blend with the backs of your hands (this is more fun than it sounds). Next double wrap your brisket tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but preferably over night. While waiting, soak your wood chips and set up your grill or smoker for indirect cooking. When ready, remove brisket from refrigerator and place straight on a 225F degree grill, fat side down. If spraying your brisket, blend the apple cider and apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz every 2-3 hours. Your brisket will take between 1 1/4 -2 hours per pound, depending on many different factors. With that said, insert an internal temperature probe into the thickest section of meat on your brisket at around 1 1/4 hours per pound of actual cooking time and begin to monitor. When your brisket reaches an internal temperature of 180F degrees, remove and double wrap with heavy duty aluminum foil; followed by wrapping tightly with a clean towel or newspaper. Now place the whole package inside of a cooler. When the internal temperature reaches 190F degrees, you are ready to un-wrap one of the best tasting cuts of beef you have ever had.
