4th of July Brisket

  1. Hey all this will be a fun test.  First time doing a brisket and we are doing one at work.  Picked up a 9# Brisket already vacuum packet just needed to score and then cover with rub. 

    Here it is resting comfortably in the fridge all wrapped up and ready to go on smoker at 1 am.  planning to eat around 5-6 pm tomorrow. Going to cook at around 275 F (hopefully weather will let me stay there) and pull around 200-210 F (pending toothpick test).

    Will post more pics as the night goes along, going to have helper cooks while i sleep and then be back to work in mid morning. [​IMG]

  6. Final product. Not much smoke ring as I had a issue with my amnps and it suffocated and only burned maybe about 1.5 hours.

    Other than that needed to spiritz or mop it to keep bark softer and not tough as nails.
    Pulled after 11.5 hours hit 205 and put toothpick in and went in like butter. Pulled and let sit for 2 hours and still nice and warm. Great juice and very decent flavor profile.

    Another view of cut

    Amnps only burned 1 leg of pellets 😠
    Just before cutting
    Rub I used

    Nice smoke! When my brisket gets the desired amount of bark I want. I just wrap it in butcher paper and finish it.
