    got this packer out. had plenty of fat on it.

    seen this deal on you tube on trimming so gave it a shot.

    fat removed.

    did a light sear.

    made a mustard slather, seen bbq bubba been using worsey sause so added some of that to plain old mustard as well as some brown sugar. slathered and then covered with basic rub. hoping to have a good bark with this method.

    mustard on, forgot to take pic with rub... is in smoker now. i put the fat trimmings on the rack abouve the brisky. have a pan below it as well.

    more to come.

    I just got ready for a mouth watering but when I got to the mustard, you stopped! I don't know if I can stay up late enough to see a pic of that baby getting done.[​IMG] I'll catch it tomorrow. Looks good so far.

    have been doing all my briskets the sear method or better known as the smoky okie method. is strictly a personal thing but i fweel the carmelization you attain with the sear gives you much deeper beefier flavour. you almost have to try one and compare and make the choice yourself. if interestedi could give links to some other posts which go more indepth on the sear.

    here it is at 130 deg. i had the fat on the top rack and removed it as it really seemed to have self basted itself pretty well so far. want the bark to set up more.
     
  8. Really looking good, Looking forward to the end result! Good job so far!

    thks all!!! real funny how this place gets a person to take pics of there food. now its just well... normal, part of the cook,etc... lol

    well here it is, the fatless brisket... well it shure is good. so now i have done them both ways.... which way will i do next, i am not sure. maybe a person needs each side by side to pass final judgement. all i know it is very fine eating. throw all the briskets i have so far done, which aint been all that many but this was the best so far. but i say that every time i make a brisket. you will have to make up your own minds or try it, make sure you report your findings either way. i find it inconclusive.











    thks for cking my pics and all feedback welcome!!!
     
  17. Looks good.... Mines sitting at 190 now.... About another 30-45 mins left and into the cooler she goes.
     
  18. I sear every brisket I smoke. I believe that it really brings out the beefy flavors in the meat and gives it a great bark. I usually sear with the rub already on though and have never put the mustard on a brisket. I doubt it would hurt though. This one looks awesome Erain!

    thks man, if you are interested here is the youtube vid i watched showing the trimming of the brisket. anctually does the whole dang thing, no edits... remember its just an option. i looked at the brisket i had and realized there was a ton of fat so having found ideas on you tube before i just clicked in trim beef brisket. but if interested heres the link.
