Brisket In My MES - Page 3

post #41 of 56

I recently purchased the MES 40inch smoker and smoked my first brisket.  I just wanted to add that I too got the fires when adding "dry" wood chips in the smoker tray.  After thinking about the smoking process with MES, I decided to soak the chips in the water as the Kinston woodchip recommended.  It prevented the flames and I was able to smoke for what seemed like longer period.  The brisket turned out ok.  I don't have any pics but I will try to post some pics with my next time.  Cheers!

16 lb brisket took only 12.5 hrs? What temp did you have the MES set on?

Have you found any other places recently to buy Packers?  I also live in Orlando.  I have a connection with a restaurant meat supplier but I have to buy a whole case and I'm not looking to do that just yet

I think that is pretty decent for around here, as long as its choice and not select.

Your average cook temp for Brisket should be around 225 no matter the size

I found another place carrying packers, its called Hopkins Meat Packing and its in Sanford.  Price is 4.59lb

RD means Restaurant Depot, I've been to Hopkins didn't see anything. But that doesn't mean they don't have it now. RD is on Princeton west of John Young.

The pic looked good and the flat looked tasty, have not done a Brisket yet, I have to drive about 25 miles to a farm store to get a brisket $6.69 per lb.
