Labor Day Brisket

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I was in the meat department of my local super market this weekend and it looks like they finally started carrying brisket. They were little guys, but for 3.99/lb I couldn't pass it up! The little guy I picked up was a 3.5 lbs flat cut. Yesterday I rubbed him down with some SPOG and Rosemary, set him in the smoker at 225-250 using Hickory and Cherry chunks for 6 hours, then finishing him in the oven with some cola and a sliced onion for another 2 hours. After an hour long nap, I was ready to eat. 



Sorry I'm a little light on the mouth was watering so bad I didn't to drool on the camera. It was so juicy and tender and had the perfect amount of smokey flavor. Luckily I have a bit left over for some sammies for lunch. Thanks for looking, hopefully this means I'll be doing a lot more briskets in my near future.
