Birthday Breakfast Brisket

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Started my first ever brisket yesterday afternoon a little after 2 pm planning on a nice birthday dinner for my wife today.
Turns out it finished around 6 am and after a nice rest I took it out and she had a few bites and scarfed up a bunch of slices and took them to work with her for lunch this morning.

Check list yesterday :

wind kept changing directions

cherry and apple ( the ash in the right hand side of the box I did not use )

Ready for meat

No foil pan pics .

Yes Joe , I cheated , around 11 pm the meat hit 170 and I foiled the pan and put in the *ven .

Pan of brisket swimming in golden goodness

Ready to put the cuts to it

First slice

Too tender and warm to slice , the rest got cut and pulled

Nothing added here , just the juiciness of the meat

Well , sorry for the long qview , but I'm happy with my first try at a brisket.

Thanks for all the great posts I've read here that made this a success !!!!!

Couldn't have done it without SMF !!!!
