First Drum Brisket

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Taking a vacation day tomorrow to do some smoking. Got a 10.5 pound packer that's going on the drum at about midnight. Going to try and do some burnt ends from the point and slice up the flat.

Here it is all rubbed and ready to rest in the fridge for awhile.

Figure I'll light the chimney about 11, let the drum warm up and get 'er dialed in and put the brisket on at around midnight. If things are going smoothly tomorrow, I may fire up the SnP and do some ABTs, Armadillo Eggs, and MOINK Balls for some lunch time snacks for the guys at work.

Should be fun to have both smokers going at once. biggrin.gif

More later.

Not yet. Going to light the drum here in about 15 minutes.

Yes, MOINK balls. Found them on another forum.

Beef meatballs (the frozen kind, thawed of course) rubbed, wrapped in bacon, stick a toothpick through them to hold them together, then smoked and sauced to your liking.

Beef = Steer (Cow for some of you) = MOO
Bacon = Pig = OINK
MOO + OINK = MOINK biggrin.gif

Never tried them before but the pics I have seen look good!!

Yeah, the wind will give you fits way more than a cold temperature.

My brisket is on. Went on at 12:15. Filled the charcoal basket with 18 pounds of Royal Oak because . . . I wanted to see how long a full load will go. Got some hickory and cherry wood in there also.

Lit 10 briquettes in the chimney.

Let 'em ash over, dumped them in the basket and let the drum warm up. When it was ready, I put the brisket on.

Here it is in its bed for the night. (I moved the probe after I took the picture. biggrin.gif )

Letting the drum settle in and then I think I'll grab some shuteye. biggrin.gif

Stuck a temp probe in it at 6:15 (6 hours in) and it's at 166.

Haven't decided whether to foil or not. It still looks pretty moist. I'll give it a bit longer then take another look. May just start mopping it.
