My first briskets

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just did these yesterday. Not sure why I waited so long. :D

Some husbands bring home flowers. Mine brings home meat.

Dan came home with two briskets the other day. They are both just under 4 lbs.

I decided to do one with mustard and rub, the other one just has rub on it.

Fat side:

Lean side:

Dawn, congrats on a great smoke, and thanks for the Q View. I can see there was no reason to hold back on that smoke. How about some details such as what was the smoker temp, at what temp did you pull them out, what wood did you use? I know I'm a pain, but those are interesting questions that can be of help to someone.

You're not a pain, Rich. Thanks for pointing out the fact I forgot to put that info in. :o

I smoked them at 220 using a mix of 3 hrs of mesquite and 1 hr of oak because that's all I had left of the mesquite. They were pulled when they reached 190, foiled, wrapped in a towel and put in a cooler for an hour.

I put them in the smoker at 8:30 am and sliced the last one at 6 pm.

There are 2 out of 4 people in this house who don't like mustard. They don't know it's on the meat. :D You can not taste it at all.
