This weekend I decided to do a brisket, Texas style....boom!
Went to my butcher and got a 6lb brisket, was expensive too so hopefully I don't screw this one up! Not the best cut ever, but the meat quality is great. I put a pint next to it for a size reference...Tyskie, Polish beer, if you haven't enjoyed one, I suggest you do...
Here she is coming to room temp after sitting in the fridge all night with a salt/pepper/garlic powder rub. I actually had to cut the point off because it wouldn't fit in my cabinet smoker properly...guess that's the side I'll be throwing in. I think I may have trimmed a bit too much off the fat cap, but live and learn ;)
Acquired some mesquite logs and got the smoker up to about 250F, using the cabinet smoker again because my barrel still needs to be cleaned after the long Chicago winter and I'm lazy...I've never used mesquite wood before so this is all very different from what I am used to, which is pork ribs and butts using mostly cherry or pecan.
I'll report back with some more pictures once I wrap it up...
What's everyone else smoking today?
