8 lb brisket

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

haven't done a good brisket for a while..so here it goes

used my mesquite chipotle rub, got the smoker up to 225 and used mesquite and apple for flavor. it took roughly 4 1/2 hours to get it to 145 internal temp.  i pulled and let rest for about 30 min. internal temp got to 152. started slicing and chowing flag.gif








as u can see, a ton of juice and tender tender tender!  

thanx for looking.

I have never pulled a brisket out at that low of a temp. I usually take mine up to 195ish then slice it. I might have to give the medium brisket a try.

Hmmmm, I never tried that pulling temp---thought it would be tough.


It sure looks mighty tasty, Red !!!!


May have to try one myself.

Looks really good, although I would have to take mine to 195*. My family don't eat red meat. (but I do).

it was very tender and juicy as you can see. i treated like prime rib or roast..worked out great for trying it the 1st time.

How did it compare in taste and tenderness to a brisket cooked to traditional temps?
