Big Chief brisky and beans

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

After cruising around these forums yesterday morning I decided to go pick up my first brisket - a small 5 pounder.

Gave it a rub down with SPOG, cumin, chili powder and sugar and tossed it into the BC at 10am. Got 5 pans of cherry smoke on it and got the IT up to 150 in the BC after 4 hours and transferred it to the oven for 4 more hours, 225 first 2 hours, 235 3rd hour, 250ish 4th hour (until the poke test passed). Final IT was 201 degrees.


Toothpick went in like butter is most spots, so I felt that was sufficient. (a few spots around the edge had a litttle resistance, but I chose to yank it anyways. This is a learning experience after all :icon_redface:)


She's laying to rest now, double wrapped in foil. I'm dying to tear into it.


Got some beans in the Big Chief as well. Using this recipe (+ 2 fingers of JD) from bradley:

Looks good, nothing wrong with starting small on the first brisket, now that you have your first one under your belt get you a packer for the next one, nothing like a little chopped point to go with the sliced flat, beans look good too

Turned out much better than the miserable failure that I expected. Very moist and tender! Will be doing this again very soon with a packer for sure....I'm dying to try out burnt ends.

Thinly sliced the rest up for lunches for the week. Had a few snackers and decided to whip up some brisket paninis and leftover beans for dinner.
