Smoking brisket on a Webber kettle for the first time. Any tips?

I’m smoking a 10lb brisket on my new Webber kettle, I bought charcoal rails and a drip pan to fill with water. Really nervous I’m using a prime brisket so I need this so go well. Do you have any tips or techniques for a really tender juicy brisket?

Go to for guidance. It's a great resource for grilling and BBQ. Good luck!

Do you have an outline recipe you're working from? I recommend looking up the Texas Crutch technique to keep the brisket moist and speed cooking (basically wrapping in foil part way through cooking to prevent evaporative temperature stalling). I don't personally have experience with smoking on a Weber kettle grill so hopefully someone else can chime in on using that.
