Brisket number 2

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
It's 11:30 at night and Brisket number 2 has been in the smoker for 3 and 1/2 hours.

The wife mixed the rub and paste. We collaborated on the mop.

We are using a slightly modified version of one of Raichlen's recipes called Oklahoma Brisket. It looked good on the show so we decided to try it this weekend with Brisket number 2.

The Brisket is about 10 pounds.

Here is some q-view of the preped meat after it was just placed on the smoker....

It is now 2:30 in the morning the Brisket is still on the smoker. I put tin foil under is at 11:30 and then covered it at 1:15 AM with tin foil as Raichlen suggested I do at 4 hours.

I am letting the charcoal left in the firebox burn down. There is still a lot in it. I was planning on bringing the Brisket inside at 4 hours and putting it covered in the oven for the last 4 hours but decided that would be a waste of charcoal.

last internal temp check was at 12:25 The highest reading was 140. (I am not sure I trust that themometer.) I will give this Brisket at least 8 hours of cooking, probably more. As soon as the smoker drops and stays below about 180 I will pull the Brisket inside and put it in the oven at 200

Here is a q-view of it at about 11:30 when I flipped it and put foil under the meat.

It has been a long day with little sleep. I pulled the brisket inside 3:15 AM and put it still wrapped in the foil in a 200 degree oven. I went to bed leaving it cooking slowly. At 6:45 AM I pulled it from the oven and took the internal temp. It was 180

After comming out of the oven

We sliced the Brisket

It was goooooood....

I spent the rest of the day going to the farmers market and smoking a slab of ribs and then some hot dogs and smoked sausage. I am tired.....

Good smoking to you all and good night.

Good looking brisket. And nice slicing job too. I need to get an electric slicer. Never seem to get my slices even using a knife.
