First Brisket Flat/2nd AMPS Smoke on MES 40

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

OK, So I am in the prep stage of my first brisket flat and second AMPS smoke on my MES 40.  I am planning on  smoking at 225 using hickory pellets until I reach 160 and then foiling until it reaches 200.  From what I have read that is pretty much the standard.  Any other suggestions would be appreciated!!


Brisket Flat pre-rub.

Brisket with sweet potato fries, Mac and cheese and garlic spinach. Brisket tasted good and was tender. Did not have the smoke ring I wanted though. On a positive note, I got the AMPS to give good smoke for 10 hrs with no intervention. Baby steps right?

I think you will find you don't get much smoke ring in an electric smoker. That being said, the brisket looks great. I would love a slice of that.

That was an excellent Job, Grappler-----------------:points:

 

And a Beautiful Finish!!:drool

 

Like Disco said, No Smoke Ring with an electric smoker. I haven't gotten one for 4 1/2 years with my MES 40, but Smoke Rings are all show anyway.

My Son gets them with his BGE, and there's no taste difference.
