I Dream of Brisket...BIG Brisket: Progressive Q-View - Page 2

The grand finale, as promised!!!

 

22.25 hours...the point is foiled and resting peacefully...

 

 

I yanked it out @ 197*, which took 8 hours @ 225* chamber temp, and the dinner bell will sound in just about 3 hours instead of 2 (wife had to run some errands and bought me an extra hour), so, I'm taking the chance on a slightly low resting temp, but with the amount of time it took to get back into the 190* range after separation, it should be fine. It probed like butter, so if that indicates what it'll be like after resting for a couple hours, we'll be in PB heaven!

I went for 3.5 hours resting, and, I give you an easy pulled beef brisket point:

I layed the point onto a platter for pulling, then transferred it back to the foil as I pulled each fist-sized mound of goodness so I could wrap it all up again for heat retention when I was finished.

 

Nice bark, some crispy fat cap, good moisture, nice beefy smoky flavor...hmm, what else can a guy ask for?

 

Hope I didn't keep you waiting too long...as the saying goes: good things come to those who wait.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks Al! Yea, the coverage of smoke on a separated and trimmed brisket can't be beat. The bark? Oh yeah, baby! For the temp issues I was battling for most of the run, it still cam through quite nicely. That is one benefit of the whole packer with light trimming...it can take a licking and keep on ticking.

Great looking Brisket, before, after, during, on top, on bottom, in the middle, left, right, and every which way but loose (Thanks Rowdy).

 

Your pictures are totally awesome too---And even "Zoomable", the way I like them!!!  (I hate a 2" or 3" picture that you zoom in on, and it is still 2" or 3").

 

I'd like to say you out-did yourself, but that just doesn't seem to pertain to you any more, Eric!

 

 

Thanks for the great write-up & views!

 

BTW: Super sammie too---I'll take a few of those, with some horseradish, please.

Thanks Bear! I do enjoy sharing these projects with all my friends here. I guess I have gotten into a zone lately, and things just roll off the smoker grates so nicely when it's all over, even if I have some unplanned events to contend with. It does help alot to have a good sixed outdoor kitchen...then mother nature doesn't become a part of the equation very often at all. So, I just go with whatever I please for a smoking project and let let the good times roll!.

Thanks Les! It was a nice sized packer...I like the big ones...they present some challenges which are a bit more amplified than with a small one, but the larger ones also can offer the added advantages of not being quite so susceptable to smoke chamber temp swings...more forgiving, if you will.

 

Fun smoke and great eats!

Thanks, meat prices are going up, but these were still under 2 bucks/lb case price, so I'll take 'em when I can get 'em..especially if I can do a good smoke like this!
