My first try at beef Brisket

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Got my smoker about a month ago its a smoky hollow got it at gander and seems to do a good job.  By the pics looks like it got a good smoke ring and it was outstanding i thought for my first time. One question i ran the internal temp to 170 before taking it off i read some where your should run the temp up to 180 to 190 they said at that temp the meat breaks down and gets really tender any ideas on that this little guy took like 6 1/2 hrs to do. and help would be great thanks

Looking pretty good.  I pull brisket to slice at about 190-193 F and to pull apart over 200F.  You should also place your brisket after pulling from the smoker in a insulated container like a cooler and cover with towels to let rest at least 45 min.  It will stay hot that way for many hours and will redistibute the moisture and become very tender.

Looks good!

 

With briskies, I also sometimes check with a temp probe or even a toothpick.  It should go in with almost almost no resistance.  If that happens, you know you are there and no need to worry about drying out the meat.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
