Shame On Me.....

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

So I stopped buying flats a while ago. While they are more appropriately sized for my family, they just never come out the same as a whole packer. So imagine my dismay as I pulled a 5 1/2 lb flat out of the freezer the other day. I was so ready to get out of the grocery store last month tha I didn't even look at the label where it said "Brisket Flat Cut." Doh! In my defense, it was about twice as big as any flat I've ever seen but still I was feeling kinda dumb. Oh well, might as well cook the dang thing.

Making some rub, 


and its all rubbed up and ready to be tucked in for the night.


Windy as hell today so the chimney is lit in the WSM with a little pecan log pre-heating on the grate. Using natural lump for the first time ever today, so we’ll see.


Holding steady at 250 so the meat goes on. A little high than I Like but I’ve heard lump runs a little on the hotter side.

Watching. Yes lump runs hotter but doesn't last as long.

See if there are any small butcher's close by. Some buy carcasses or Packers and break them down. The lean Flats sell easy and at a premium. The Points can often be had cheaper. Back in PA, I had a guy that gave me a discount if I would buy a few points at a time...JJ

So my wife got me a dutch oven for Christmas and now I can finally cook beans on the smoker.


Put the beans @ 11:00, Brisket at 167 degrees. wrapped @12:50 - 170 degrees. pulled at 3:30, IT at 207. Wrapped it up in a towel in the cooler until 5:30.


and it’s Dinnertime!

Well I’ve been looking into a few as well as farmers. Looking to buy a hog and a side/Qtr of beef in the fall. But that gives me a good question to ask. Thank you
