First Smoke Right Now!! 13# Brisket - Page 4

Thread Starter 
Thanks Chad. Not gonna do the corn in the smoker - it's already de-husked from Costco. No problem. I already got my hands full anyway!The liquids from last night are still in there. A little leaked out, but I put an additional foil under it when I put it in the oven. If you make it to Spoons Coffee House, you're only 1.5 miles from me - come on over! If you are serious, I will PM you directions.

ABTs & beans have been in two hours now - Look great! Should I stir the beans at all?

If you stir them you will expose new surface area to absorb smoke. Depends on how smoky you want it I guess.

PDT_Armataz_01_25.gif I'd call my first smoke a success! Not perfect, by any means, but successful nonetheless. It was very tender and flavorful. The skinny end of the flat was not as moist as I hoped. The point section was very juicy and mostly fell apart - I'll be having shredded beef sandwiches tomorrow for sure! Next time I will try an all-nighter and eat it a couple hours after it's done, instead of the 16 hours that passed last night into this afternoon.

PDT_Armataz_01_03.gif The ABTs were in the smoker for 3 hours. I had them in a disposable 4x8 pan and the bottoms of the peppers were a little crunchy - I don't think they cooked enough - and a little hot (spicy). They started out at as hit, till people bit into the bottoms and were surprised by the spice. No big deal. Next time I'll fix that.

PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif The beans (Dutch's Wicked Beans) were a big hit! I had two huge portions, and some asked for seconds as well. I'll definitely be making them again, especially in the smoker.

1st Smoke



Good job! Looks great.

If you have a thinner end wrap it after a few hours it'll protect it.

SmokeEater, I don't know if you've since this thread or not. It has several good ideas in it to help you get them peppers upright and cure the crispy side. I like the flavor of them better when they are more exposed than they can be in a pan as well. There are everything from chile grills you can buy to a bricks and skewer method you could put together pretty cheap. Hope it is of some use to you.


Your final pics look good, I wish my first briskets turned out as well as yours did. Smoke on!!! cool.gif
