First Beef Brisket

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Im starting today with my first Beef Brisket ever, and its been a while coming.  The brisket im using is about 4 1/2 lbs.  Typically when I grill, I make my own rubs, however for this event i wasnt sure to go with.  I chose Weber's Kansas City Style BBQ Rub.  Ive yet to try out this particular rub, but if it is like Weber's reputation, it will be delicious.

Looks good so far. What smoker do you have? Are you going to let it be an all nighter?

I have a Chargriller w/ SFB, and it should only need about 6-7 hours by my calcs, tho really the temp tells the tale.  My grill is actually heating up as we type, and hopefully it reaches a sweet 225ish shortly so i can get this brisket a smoking.  :)

Can't say I heard that one. How big is that Bear? You need big logs to make bears. Even a bear that's only about 7' tall needs a log about 3' in diameter, or he'll be too skinny.

And that's keeping the arms & paws tight against the body, and starting just inside the bark!
