7lb Brisket - QVIEW

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Alright, day three with the new MES. I'm giving this thing a workout! For today, I'm doing a 7lb brisket; just the flat as that was all Costco had. Anyway, I rubbed it down with some Jack Stack steak rub last night and let it marinate in the spices overnight. Then this morning, I coated it in mustard, and added some spicy pepper rub that I made with some turbinado sugar for bark formation. Into the MES with Pecan in the chip tray, and Hickory in the AMNS. Having 5 people over for dinner tonight, can't wait to taste this bad boy. More pics to come once smoke is complete.

Here it is after about 5 hours. I pulled it from the rack, and put it in the pan and then covered with foil for the remainder of the smoke. It was at 155 when I pulled it. It had a good amount of bark formation.

Here is the finished brisket. Last time I did brisket, I didn't wrap it, this time I decided to wrap it. I def won't wrap again. It was very tender and juicy, but reminded me more of pot roast than bbq. Would have made good pulled brisket though.

It looks very good, I do not foil mine either.  For me the bark is important, but that is just me
