Yet another 1st Brisket w/Qview

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was nervous about this as I kinda feel like it's the holy grail of smoking but my anxiety was unfounded; it turned out perfect and got high praise from friends & family alike. My brother swears I could hold my own in any Texas throw-down so I was on cloud nine for several days.

Did this while the forums were down so I really felt like I was flying blind without popping on and asking for advice every hour! biggrin.gif

It was about 14 pounds and I marinated it for a day, then dried it and put on a rub & wrapped it for another day then started it at six-thirty in the morning on the coldest day this winter (for us that was around 35).

Coming out of the wrap after the sealed rub.

Had a little trouble with a flare up early on but got it under control quick.

Looking pretty; a little extra smoke from just having stoked.

Flipped once during the smoke for about an hour then back for the remainder. Mopped during the last hour.

Rested & wrapped for an hour then the first slices.

A close-up (yeah, I need to quit shooting pics with my phone, I know.)

Plated and ready for the masses. (Color is a little off on this shot.)

The full meal: brisket, Boudin stuffed mushrooms, spinach salad & sliced white cheddar.

Can't wait to do another one! :)

Thanks, y'all. And yes, anyone is always welcome to come and do dishes!

As for the marinade, if I remember right I used some Dale's, Coca-cola, garlic powder and molasses.

The dry rub was paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, dark brown sugar, Lawry's, allspice and coffee.
