She's at 164* close enough for me to foil. Forgot apple juice!....Cut up four apples for some moisture & added before foiling. Not sure about the cut up apples, but??????

Hmmm... might make a cool garnish on the top... toss 'em under a broiler with a bit of butter and brown sugar on them while pulling meat?

Briskets look good - let us know how the apples work out.

My stepson bought me a pair of ov-gloves for searing a couple weeks ago at the dollar store for around 7 or 8 bucks.. Nice kid eh? biggrin.gif

Looks good. I am curious of how the apples help it and turn out. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Agreed! As far as gloves, I have 6 dollar welding gloves. Have (had) 2 pair for my wirefeed welder, now there's only one in the welder kit...heh, heh.

Apple....Shmapple....They might help keep some moisture in the brisket when foiling & maybe a hint of flavor to the Au jus but look kinda disgusting when unfoiled, I guess I wasn't sure what to expect! IMHO the seared Brisket turned out about the same as a normal smoked brisket. The "on fire" pics look pretty cool thoughbiggrin.gif ya gotta like that!

erain, it was not bad by any means.....Too me it just tasted like a regular smoked brisket, no different than normal, which is a good thing!wink.gif Thanks to you & RonP!

Hey Fishlawn, not too bad for the first seared brisket attempt. Hope you try another one, and if you do, sear the heck outta the thing until it's black and sticky. It may look ruined but it's not, and that's when the malliard process kicks in and transforms the meat into beefy-goodness that comes with the sear.

Overall, nice job!
