On a vacation stop in Cleveland, I decided to take on my first brisket while shopping at the west side city market. Picked up a 7 pound point from a stall and the butchers first question was right on...Have u graduated to a brisket yet...I confirmed that I was in fact ready but still nervous dropping a large amount of money on such a finicky piece of meat. Total cook time was 18 hours at 225 on apple wood chunks and lump maple leaf charcoal. I'll let the pictures say the rest. Results were absolutely awesome!
Loving my new highland!
