My parents celebrated their 40th year together over the weekend of Sept. 17th, so the wife and I decided to throw them a party to honor them for their commitment to one another.
I was in charge of the meat and beans.
The Briskets weighed in at 13lbs each untrimmed.
I love briskets...
..too bad you have to pay for an extra 3lbs of fat.
I probably trim mine a little more than most people, but I've not had any issues with them getting dry so I'll keep trimming them up tight.
A few pork butts for good measure. About 7lbs each.
So, 28lbs of butt and 22'ish lbs of trimmed brisket.
I had to add a 3rd rack to my WSM so I could fit everything on the smoker. I just installed it between the stock racks. It worked out pretty well.
The briskets were done in just over 8 hours, which surprised the heck out of me. They were on the lower racks, which is usually at a lower temp than the top rack...I was a little concerned when I put them to rest.
