First Brisket

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Smoked my 1st brisket on my MES 30 yesterday for Fathers Day. It was a 4 Lb flat I started at 5 AM. 225 with a full AMAZIN tray of apple pellets rubbed with Jeff's Rub over a good coating of A1 Bold & Spicy.  At 165 I placed in a foil pan and covered tightly with foil with 6 ozs. of apple juice. Cooked to 200 and placed in a cooler till my 4 boys and daughter-n-laws came over. (about 2 hrs). Turned out super tender and moist

Looks great! Haven't ventured a brisket since I violated my 1st one. Makes me want to try again. Thanks for sharing

Looks great. One quick tip (if you haven't already noticed) be sure to slice against the grain. Looks like you slightly with the grain, or about 45*. Of course,with it being tender like yours, it it not as crucial but still....

If you can get a flat to turn out that nice you'll go nuts with a full packer. You may have to trim a tad off the flat end of a packer to fit, but it will be a nice smoke

Yea, I forgot to check the grain direction before I started. Didn't really matter though cause it was sooo tender. Next time I'll check for sure and cut a corner off corresponding to the grain direction.
