So 2 nights ago i was purusing around on my favorite site (SMF), especially when I'm hungry, When i came across the "alelover's" first brisket post... an i thought to myself why the heck havent i done one of these wonderful selections of meat yet... My girlfriend saw me drooling from the mouth while looking at his post and asked me what i was going to smoke. i told her we needed to take a trip to costco and see if they have any brisket. We found some and i was able to get a 4 pounder for $20. its expensive but i love this meat and im keeping my fingers crossed it turns out. So last night i made a rub of smoked paprika, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, cocoa powder, garlic powder, and celery salt. tasted great before i put it on the meat so i can imagine what it is gonna taste like when its all said and done... anyhow. i then lathered the meat with a little worchestershire sauce and franks red hot sauce (Took place of a mustard) and rubbed her down with the rub. As of now she is in the smoker at 205 degrees (using a hickory/ mesquite mix 60/40). its been a little over 2 hours now and its getting close to foil time. my temp probe is correct too. the temp climb is slowing down now so im sure it'll b done around dinner time. i am gonna take her to 195. i will be placing some beef broth into the pan before i foil too. here is some qview for all that are interested in looking. i will post the later stage pics when i get there. and of course i wont let you all down and ill get that money shot.
