    Started my first ever brisket yesterday afternoon a little after 2 pm planning on a nice birthday dinner for my wife today.
    Turns out it finished around 6 am and after a nice rest I took it out and she had a few bites and scarfed up a bunch of slices and took them to work with her for lunch this morning.

    Check list yesterday :

    wind kept changing directions

    cherry and apple ( the ash in the right hand side of the box I did not use )

    Ready for meat

    No foil pan pics .

    Yes Joe , I cheated , around 11 pm the meat hit 170 and I foiled the pan and put in the *ven .

    Pan of brisket swimming in golden goodness

    Ready to put the cuts to it

    First slice

    Too tender and warm to slice , the rest got cut and pulled

    Nothing added here , just the juiciness of the meat

    Well , sorry for the long qview , but I'm happy with my first try at a brisket.

    Thanks for all the great posts I've read here that made this a success !!!!!

    Couldn't have done it without SMF !!!!

    Thanks all for the compliments [​IMG] and My wife thanks you all for the birthday wishes [​IMG] Tough day to celebrate on so we keep it pretty low key and usually go out to dinner on the weekend. This year the Irish fest was last weekend , she enjoyed that a lot.
