Thursday night my wife asked me if I could do a brisket for Saturday. Her two sisters had both requested a brisket since we will be celebrating my wife's oldest sister's birthday on Saturday. That meant that I would have to go out Friday morning and find a good brisket to smoke. I had been Jonesing for some brisket for a couple of weeks now so I readily agreed. I was very blessed in that the very first Walmart I went to had only one brisket, but it was perfect. It was a 10# brisket that was very fresh and very limp and supple. Unfortunately, their brisket prices have gone up from $1.98 to $2.68 a pound. It is still cheaper than a flat only from Harris-Teeter at $4.99 a pound.
Hear she is all rubbed down and ready to go in the fridge for a few hours. I used EVOO instead of mustard to help the rub stick and my rub is one of my own recipes that I have had a lot of success with.
More qview to follow. It has been in the GOSM since 10:30PM last night and is around 185 internal right now at 9:20AM. I foiled it this morning when it hit 170. My GOSM stayed steady at 230 all night so I was even able to get some sleep last night.
Stay tuned for more pix later in the day.
