I'd love to tell ya that I'll be up all night but that would be a lie. The smoker will be running all night with a 12.5 pound brisket on there but instead of me the BBQ Guru NanoQ will be standing guard. I've used it a couple times now and trust it to run on it's own.
I'm trying something different with the brisket. I normally inject with a mixture of spices, beef broth and worcestershire sauce. I purchased some worcestershire powder a while back and discovered that it makes fantastic sauce. This time around the injection is nothing more than beef broth, onion powder, creole seasoning and the new powder. Using the powder instead of the liquid form really concentrates the flavors.The rub I'm using consists of a paste made from some leftover injection mix and montreal steak seasoning....If it tastes half as good as it smells I'll be a very happy camper.
Here she is ready to hit the WSM......
I'll be tossing on some pork spare ribs in the morning too. I've volunteered to provide the main course for our fathers day lunch/dinner.
I'm celebrating my very first fathers day not only as a step dad but also with the fruit of my loins who is merely 10 days old. Meet Scout.....my little boy!
