First Brisket Flat of 2014

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The LOML wanted brisket for dinner. This was a 11 pounder or so. Everything was going excellent until the wind picked up then temp dropped like a rock. I could almost watch temp drop on gauge. I could not get temps up no matter what I did. I was left no choice but to finish it up in the oven.

Looks excellent and appears with the smoke ring you got plenty of smoke to it before switching to the oven, nice work!

I was pleased with the smoke ring. I was a bit unsure how it would turn out. We are in the beginning of a very cold snap. Wind blows hard here in Kansas almost all of the time.

It depends on what temp you cook it at.  I was around 225 to 240 on average.  It took about 9 hours total from start to finish.
