Packer Brisket and Flat in the propane smoker!

  1. Not only did I smoke the pork butt over the weekend but since this smoker is sooo roomy, I put a 14 lb Packer and a 6.5 lb Flat in there too! Might as well get my money's worth on the propane.

    Smoked at 250-275* with Hickory and Cherry and a big pan of Chef Jimmy's Smoky Au Jus (if you haven't tried it, you should).

    The packer was for a friend, who has never had brisket before and the flat was for us. These cooked in less than half the time they normally would have taken in my MES40. Next brisket I smoke will be injected and smoked hot and fast.

    Trimmed and rubbed the packer with some Ralph's Brisket Rub (friend brought it).

    4 hours and put the temp probe in - 135* IT.

    10 hours in, Flat at 160* IT so getting ready to separate the point from the flat. Gotta make the guy burnt ends!

    Total time for the Packer was 12.5 hours!!!!

    Now the flat for us. I trimmed it up and seasoned with a light coat of olive oil and A1 Cracked Peppercorn Seasoning

    Total time for Flat was 7 hrs to an IT 180*

    Thanks for looking!

    Again, It looks Awesome Alesia!!! I looked at a bunch of briskets this weekend and I think this is the first BE's I've seen!!! I'm happy someone still remembers where the best part of the brisket is!!!
    Great job and keep the propane flowing!!!
  5. Thanks Red! Very moist and juicy. The friend loved it and can't wait to have another one!
    Thanks Kat...oh yes that's my new toy!!!
    Thanks Dave! Well the friend I smoked it for had never eaten brisket before and I thought he should have the best of both worlds! He loved both and said it isn't hard to just eat and eat the BEs.  Believe it or not, I only used less than half tank of propane.
