well here is how that bad boy turned out. took a little over 15 hours to hit 185. no pics of it sliced cause people could wait two seconds, and no leftovers for me :( it was the most tender and juicy piece of meat ive had. also made some of Dutch's beans which were awesome! lone steer sauce was mighty fine as well!

That was a good looking chunk of meat there Dozer. And when there are no leftovers that is merely a silent pat on your back pal. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Yes that certainly does look good. Wish I could have been in on that feeding frenzy!!!!!

I hope to do one of those this weekend. Only tried the smaller cut pieces of brisket, about 4-5 lbs. They were good, but I want to try the whole thing!

New guy here. What is lone steer sauce?

Lone Steer Sauce


look under the forums under beef. it is a sticky under finishing sauce for brisket. give it a try. its mighty tasty if you can get past all the fat used in it!
