First Brisket Q_View

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

If you have been keeping track of my other post -- http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=18462 I'm doing my first ever brisket in my new electric smoker. Thanks so much for all the help so far. I thought I'd make a new post just to do the Q-View thing and try to keep my newb questions in the other post.

Here's my hunk of cherry wood ready to be made into wood chips for the smoker. I did this Friday evening.

And here's a bag full of cherry wood chips. I used my brothers jointer to do this, but the chips could have been a bit bigger.

A trip to the grocery store to get the stuff for the rub. I had a few things, but some of it was getting pretty low so I just bought the refill to put into the shakers.

Here's the brisket at 10:00 or so last night all rubbed down and ready to spend the night in the fridge.

And finally for now, the brisket after 3.5 hours in the smoker and an internal temperature of 154.

More Q-View later.

Thanks guys.

This is what it looked like after 45 minutes wrapped in a towel. I let it got to 170 then wrapped in foil and put it back in to 196. I was going to go to 200 but I didn't want to wait any longer.PDT_Armataz_01_26.gif

And carved up ready to eat/

I'm pretty impressed with the outcome, but will need to perfect this over time. The meat was very juicy, not even a hint of dryness. I used cherry to smoke but next time I will use something a bit stronger. Thanks to all who helped out.

Hey seaham, to give points, look in the header bar at the top of each post within a thread. On the left is the time of the post. On the right you'll see three icons. The middle one looks like scales. Click that, a box opens, write something nice, and submit. The points you award to folks is equal to the amount of your rep power. You can only give out so many points in a 24 hour period, and you have to spread points around before giving more to the same person.

Nice smoke. Try your chop saw to cut chunks for the smoker.
