I found a 12 lb. brisket at wally world the other day for $1.65/lb. and a turkey for $.68/lb.
This will be my second attempt at brisket, my first was 6lbs and came out pretty good so now I'm going for the bigger meat today! This is going to be my first Turkey also.
6:00 am, getting started with the fire and smoke.
I didn't get before pics of the brisket yesterday when I started separating it and trimming fat but here are the point and flat smothered in Jeff's rub after refrigerating last night:
I trimmed most of the fat off even the cap, I plan on spritzing it often enough, and the last brisket I did I didn't trim it at all and really should have we'll see how it comes out.
On the UDS with a little hickory.
And just because it was cheap too, I have a 13 lb. turkey I brined yesterday under the brisket.
Wish me luck. I will also do a more detailed what and how on my blog (it's allot of fun and it gets my friends and family looking at my food when I put it on facebook) the link is in my signature please stop by and make some comments if you like.
More pics to come.
