Back to Basics Brisket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

 Started out with a 15+ lbs, packer brisket, but after trimming, it was more like 14 lbs.
Didn't get fancy this time. I just smeared some mustard and Worcestershire  all over, then sprinkled with SPOG (salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder). Injected with a mixture of beef broth and more Worcestershire, and slid into the electric fridge conversion to smoke overnight.
For smoke, I used my AMNPS with Pitmaster's Choice pellets. Smelled great! It's been a while since I've done anything in that smoker, so it's nice to have it puffing away again. Only had to light it once, and it worked like a charm! I did put a small piece of foil on the rack above to catch any drips.
Sorry, I don't have pics of the prep, but my hands were too messy to play with a camera. Put it in at 10:30pm Friday night, kept an eye on the temps until 12:30am, then went to bed.

I got up at 5:30 to check on things, and the temp was right on target at 225°, and the AMNPS was 1/3 of the way thru the third row. Man, I love that thing. Thank you, Todd!


This is a skewed shot, lengthwise, so it looks much smaller than it actually was. It came to be about 22" when done. This was hour 11, right before I foiled.


All told, it was a 15-1/2 hour smoke. After a nap in the cooler, it was sliced for dinner and was very juicy and fork tender.

I apologize that there are no plated pics, but my daughter and her husband came late, and I was just trying to get things on the table while they were still warm.

But I have now achieved one of my dreams: smoking in my sleep!  sausage.gif

For some reason, I can't seem to upload 2 pics to the same post today, so here is one of the AMNPS fully discharged.

Its hard to beat the basics. Nice looking Brisket.


AMPS is sure sweet when it gets close to bedtime. Its not like a marathon diner anymore, followed with a drag a$$ afternoon.
