Finally had a chance to try a brisket in my new smoker a few days ago.. I have the Masterbuilt Propane XL.
I forgot to take pictures when I prepared the brisket, but I do have the pictures of the finished product.
This is a full packer I bought at WalMart. I think I paid $2.19 a lb.. It was about 11 lbs..
I seasoned the brisket with Sea Salt & Coarse Pepper. I trimmed the fat to between 1/2 to 1/4 inch. When I smoked the meat I put the fat on a rack above the brisket & let the fat drip onto the meat. The smoker temp was between 225 & 240.. Depending on the wind & if the chunks of wood started to heat up. I put the meat on about 10:00PM & removed it about 6:00PM the following evening. The internal temp was at 199. We did not wrap at all.. We like our meat done a little bit more done than most.
As you can see by the pictures below the meat sliced beautifully & tasted even better. It was very tender & moist. My wife, myself & my 7 year old boy ate every bit before wednesday came around. It was cooked the previous Sunday.
P.S. This is my first post with pictures so please be kind.. lol :)
