    picked up a 11.5# packer brisket yesterday afternoon. didnt go to crazy trimming her up. removed bout 1.5# of fat (which 3/4 of it ill save for some lone steer sauce) rubbed it up with jeff's rub and got it on at about 10pm. im seven hours in to it and just hit 150. using a pecan cherry mix of wood. sure does smell good! more pics to come.

    well here is how that bad boy turned out. took a little over 15 hours to hit 185. no pics of it sliced cause people could wait two seconds, and no leftovers for me :( it was the most tender and juicy piece of meat ive had. also made some of Dutch's beans which were awesome! lone steer sauce was mighty fine as well!

    That was a good looking chunk of meat there Dozer. And when there are no leftovers that is merely a silent pat on your back pal. [​IMG]

  12. Yes that certainly does look good. Wish I could have been in on that feeding frenzy!!!!!

    I hope to do one of those this weekend. Only tried the smaller cut pieces of brisket, about 4-5 lbs. They were good, but I want to try the whole thing!

    New guy here. What is lone steer sauce?

    look under the forums under beef. it is a sticky under finishing sauce for brisket. give it a try. its mighty tasty if you can get past all the fat used in it!
