I did it. 1st brisket ( that is good! )

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I did it! Smoked one that turned out good !
After 3 or 4 that didn't !

I used the following :
12 lb packer untrimmed
I trimmed about 1/2 lb off myself.
Rubbed with a paste - 5 mins before It was smoked - molasses , bbq sauce, salt n pepper , garlic powder, chili powder and paprika.
Smoked On my MES 40
Smoked fat side down 4 hrs at 240. In mes 40. Added Apple wood chips 3 times.
Then Foiled and cooked 8 hrs more 220 fat side up ( in oven).
Then separated flat and rested it for 3 hrs.
Burnt ends - with the point. Mmmm.
Cubed that up and added molasses and sauce. Broiled for 10 mins to crisp em up.
And just turned oven off while we went to church.

I don't have extra temp thermo yet. And didn't trust the Mes one -it read internal 195 after just 3 hrs smoking at 240. .
I just went low and slow with foil - after initial smoke.
It turned out great. I really like the molasses on it. It's a little too tender. Pieces won't hold together. Maybe a little overdone but still great.
This picture is just before I made burnt ends and rested the flat

Bark could have been better and smoke ring could have been better - but the flavor and tenderness are great. Compared to previous ones - tough and flavorless. Hope I can do this again.

Congrats on your first brisket Jax! Look real good!


Next time try to get a pic of the sliced flat. I love making burnt ends from the wife actually would skip the flat altogether and just have me make those burnt ends! LOL


Nice work!
