My 1st Brisket

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

It was only a 11LB one but hey you have to start some where. Oh and I hit a 3 hour stall now I know what you guy's are talking about. 

 

 

 

I did the wife a turkey breast tenderloin also.

Nothing wrong with an 11lb-er.  They cook faster than the larger ones.  Looks good - congrats.

very true it took 15 hours to hit 190. Wife thought I was crazy I set my alarm at 1 am to get it going.

Wife thought I was crazy I set my alarm at 1 am to get it going.

 

I hear ya, brother.  First butts I did last year I told my wife a couple of times "I'm gonna have to get up early to get it started", without much response.  When the alarm went off at 3:00 am the conversation was:

 

Wife: "It's 3:00, what's wrong?"

Me: "Nothing's wrong, I told you I would have to get up early"

W: "This isn't early, it's the middle of the night."

M: "You want it for dinner, don't you"

W: "You're nuts.  Someone's going to call the cops when they see you back there with that flashlight strapped to your head"

 

[Sigh...]  They just don't get it.  That's my favorite part of the whole process.

I just busted out loud laughing as I'm reading this...Mrs. Red looks over at me like I've got a loose screw.  She says "what the heck are you laughing at"?  I says "its nothing...you wouldn't get it."

 

Its so funny because I've been there, done that!

 

BTW Todg...your brisket looks great...nice first attempt!  Thumbs Up

NP Wyatt and your smoked pepper sticks were  perfect also. Did you do a post yet on them and your smoker you built?

Too funny, my wife thought the same when I did my first brisket...then she had those wonderful burnt ends...

 

Now about every other day or so I get: ''When's the next time you are going to get your a$$ up in the middle of the night and cook me a brisket??''

 

Gotta love it!

 

Congrats on the brisket Tod, looks real good!
