First-Time Brisket w/QView

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My first attempt at a brisket.  5 pounder took about 6 hours.  A little over done and dry.  But the flavor was on the money.  Next time, I will pull at 170 instead of 185 for slicing.

 

Here is a link the the SMF Album:  First Time Brisket Album

 

Here is the money shot!  Sorry Bear!  I'm not a fan of rare meat.

By the way, the WSM has been running steady at 225 for 12 hours now and is STILL going strong.  18 lb bag of Trader Joe's natural wood briquettes - $6.99.  I'll let you know when the temp falls under 200.

Looks good. Congrats on your first brisket. Was it just a flat?

Looks great!! Did you let it rest before slicing? Looks like all the juice is on the platter.

Wrapped it in foil and a towel and put it in a cooler for about 2 hours.
