Speed Brisket...w/a view

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well today I smoked 2 13# briskets and 2 7# butts. The butts are still going, the briskets were done in 7.5hrs!!! I set my temp, had it going at 225* after 3 hrs then put the therm on the butt side(2 halves to my smoker). At one point I went to squirt some aj on the meat and noticed the brisket already at 157*!!! I thought "oh, .........stinkenhymer!" (I'm being more polite.......can't quote what I actually said PDT_Armataz_01_19.gif )

So I foiled as usual and pulled one off at 205*, the other one didn't feel as soft so I took it to 210*. The 210 would have been good for pulled brisket, but I like it sliced and in juice.

Brisket is good, a bit drier than normal but once it is put in the juice it'll be alright. Still very tender, fair smoke ring, tastes great, but is very filling.

This site has a pic of Hope, 4 pics of the 210 brisket, and some pics of my smokers .............I was going to do a pellet smoker review but it was take'n too loong. Some day.

I have been due for some "view", so here is what I got. Guess I felt guilty for not post'n enough pics.

Added the pic of Hope Herman for those who would like to add her to your tree.

PS, sure would like a pic of Ron's daughter, HINT...HINT. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

Hey Kool-Aid! You smell like a big turd.
That kind of criticism? icon_lol.gif

Looks good to me, cant see any reason for criticism on the smoke. Did it pass the family test?
Brisket has gotten pricey here, havent done one since late summericon_sad.gif .

I was gonna blow you some greif but figured that it would just go over your head anyways.

Juuuuuuuuust kiddding, you asked for it.PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

The meat looks good to me, and thanks for the pics. I like the look of that pellet feeder, that is one thing that I have not yet seen in real life. Just curious, what is the pellet consumption rate of a rig like that. Pounds per hour? Price per pound? Do the pellets provide the heat and smoke? I will have to do some research it looks like.

And by the way, it seems that I have had a quicker than expected smoke or two here lately (Well, not real lately) I think that over confidence causes it. That is, I have quit peeking at the food every fifteen minutes or so. Now the smoker stays at temp for a greater portion of the cooking time, and thus, it seems to cook way faster than it seems like it would have a year ago. Go figureicon_rolleyes.gif

Big Al, it all looks great!

GoFish, yeah, the cheapest I can find a brisket around here is $3.99/lb... and that's just the flat. I can't find a whole packer anywhere...

I just saw whole brisket last night at Albertson's grocery for $1.99 per pound. Had a real nice looking 12 1/2 pounder, but I passed it up. Waiting for the weather to warm up a little before trying a brisket.

Zapper, I'm not real sure on pellet consumption. I would guess about 1/2 - 1#/hr. Depends on weather, most of the time I'd say figure 1/2#. Cost is about $.60/# The pellets provide the heat and smoke.

I've had a few go fast, not this fast, and I've had them take 2+hrs/#. I've had them too juicy(just made me made I was loose'n the juice all over) and too dry.

I've had the same luck w/butts. The ones I did the other day had a fast and a slow. The bigger one went faster.

If I had any temp probs they weren't for long. I had probes everywhere, mess'n around. I also opened the lid to put a baste on the meat every hr-hr1/2. I guess I should call up ol' Ripley and see if he "believes it or not". PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

a Kobe brisket!? That must have been expensive! Where'd you get it and was there any difference?
