Brisket Cold Michigan style

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Got back from the bar. Fired up the smoker. Got a 15 pound prime grade brisket on the smoker. It's about 20 degrees outside. Had a bit of cold snap. Best part tho its hard for the smoker to overheat. I have 3 big logs of oak and the smoker is having a hard time getting over 200.

Ha ha. Came out excellent as usual. No pictures this time. Just sliced it up. Gave some to my neighbor and friends. And ate brisket for a whole week.

I actually enjoy smoking when it's really cold. Smoker never overheats. Definitely have to use more wood than normal.

I smoked a big brisket Christmas eve and into the morning. It was -20 including wind chill. And started snowing in the morning. That was intresting.

I've done my share of smoking in the cold weather. But don't think I ever came home from the bar to fire up the stick burner and tackle a 15lb brisket cook!. I'm usually happy with what comes out of the microwave at that point! :biggrin:

Ha ha. Oh it started snowing really hard. I just use the top of my grill. To protect it from the elements as the wood catches. Works really well when it is pouring rain too!
