    and tells me she got a briskit. Lets me know this yesterday. So I cancel all plans today and get ready for a smoke. Later dad swings by and drops off an entire flat.
    Got a rub on it and into the smoker it went around 6am. I have pictures but no way to load them on this computer. They will follow. Started the morning with Bloody Marys and now I have switched to beer. Brisket is stuck at 140 so its time to relax and wait for nascar! Good food later!

    Here are the pictures.

    Getting the fire started.


    The meat ready to go in.


    Meats in and the bloody mary is taking a lil smoke on.


    Meat is plateaued but coming along nicely!


    While the meat was cooking we fixed up some brunch and watched the french open.


    The plateau still holding strong. Actually lost 8 degrees.


    When it got around 160 I wrapped it and added in a mixture of bourbon, cider vinegar, bbq sauce, and butter.


    At 185 pulled it and allowed to rest and sliced.


    For dessert I broiled pineapple slices that had been covered in brown sugar. Add on a scoop of ice cream and the meal is completed in good fashion.

    My grandma wasn't sure if she wanted to come over tonight. I cooked brunch with a cheese quiche and sausage. She thought she had enough with that so I bribed her and said I would grill pineapple for dessert. That was enough to bring her over tonight as well. Sometimes you have to bribe them.

    Brisket is still on a plateau stuck at 145. Just added new coals and a lil more wood. Popped another beer and Nascar is getting close to starting. Its a good day!

    The ONLY reason I hesitated to commit to cooking a brisket today was I had planned to go shark fishing in the kayak today! But I love my parents so I canceled all plans and came over to cook for them.

    The sharks will be here next weekend! and the fish will still be biting [​IMG]

    Aren't parents great. At least your's brings the meat. My parents come over when ever they know I'm smoking. LOL. Never the less, it's always quality time as a family.

    Was a great race, and the top 2 yotas didn't win, another plus. Good to see K Bush finish last, and Tony baloney down a lap! My hendricks guys did ok, but that darned Casey Kaine is on a roll, and nobody was gonna touch him!

    Let me get this straight. You're offering brisket, and grilled pineapple is the selling point? No offense to grandma, but that's just wrong. I mean, I can understand that quiche might be a deal breaker, but with brisket on the line?
