Made a BIG brisket for our neighborhood National Night Out

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Made an 18 pound brisket for National Night Out. Each year I get voluntold to do it. biggrin.gif

I made this on my work in progress electric smoker I'm working on. Worked well for the 14 hours it took to get to the IT of 190.

All the neighbors were happy with it!

This rub was pretty tame since I wasn't sure of the audience that would be eating it. Kids, Seniors, etc... Didn't want to cause any too spicy issues. Salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and a wee bit of my homemade ancho chili powder. The chili powder is just that, powdered ancho chilis that I dried and ground.

I love the electric smokers for their ease of use, but I sure miss my smoke ring....

Mighty good looking brisket! I too enjoy my electric smoker for ease. Have you ever put a few charcoal briquettes in with your wood chips or whatever you use for smoke? Personally I haven't tried it but I have read several posts about people doing that to get a better smoke ring with electric. I am going to give it a try this weekend when I do my first pork butt for pulled pork.

 

Good smoke! :points:

Wow folks, thanks for the points, it's just a brisket. biggrin.gif

I haven't tried the charcoal more than once, simply because I haven't thought about it until it was too late. I may do a chuckie or something this weekend and will try it then!

For smoke, I use the 18" Amazen tube with hickory pellets. I'm pondering making a small rack out of expanded metal to lay some briquettes on, minion style, to see how it goes.

I get "voluntold" quite often when it comes to BBQ.... The bride has a lot to do with that!

Hey CrankyBuzzard,

I did two 18lb'rs two weekends ago, it was a job. They turned out pretty good. After 5 hours I wrapped in foil, then cooked to 200 degrees. I think next time I'm going to wrap at my preferred color temp, which is a bit lighter than the dark bark I got at 5 hrs, and wrap then to preserve. I try to cook at 250-275.

 

I did a brisket the weekend before that and I didn't wrap it since I wanted to see how it fared. Let's just say I wasted that money, it was extremely dry and chewy. So I'm convinced on wrapping, just want to perfect it. What temp did you do that one at and do you wrap at all?

CB that is a nice looking smoke, another good deed you have done.
