First Brisket ever.....SUCCESS (w/ lots of Q-View)!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

It was time to smoke my first brisker EVER on any pit, so I took all of the "How To smoke a Brisket" info I could find all over the web into consideration and decided when I couldnt take it anymore to go with the K.I.S.S method.  



Rub with yellow mustard

Apply dry rub

Wrap in plastic wrap

Let rest for 1-2 days in fridge

Wake up at 3 AM (YUCK)

Apply sugar and brown sugar

Throw on UDS (charcoal and pecan) at 225 till done 

Opened once at 8 hours in to take pic and throw temp probe in

No water pans, heat diverters, foiling etc....well, not until I pulled it to rest

Pulled at 195-197 foiled, panned and ice chested for 2 hours



Also had some alligator boudin and some moinks which are a fav to anyone that has ever tried them.  Enjoy the Q-View :)

Are those splits of smoke wood next to the charcoal basket?  I like that set up.  How did the set up perform?

Thanks guys.


Regarding the splits, it works great.  I just fill the basket with coals and then put the 2 small logs on the top op the coals and then drop my 8-12 lit coals in the middle of the basket.  Lasted the 12 hours with no problem and had constant smoke the entire time.  Might not be the best way, but it was worked for me.  I tried to jam a log on an angle into the center of the basket before also but it was a tad harder to do.

Right at 12 hours.  I didnt open it but once at 8 hrs to probe quickly though and it was 175.  If I would have wrapped it would have been faster of course.
