Finally...Okie's seared brisket is gonna happen

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

A 13.4 pound, $1.28/lb. Wal-Mart brisket to be Weber seared and smoked tomorrow. I AM going to have to cut it into two pieces, or it will NEVER fit in the MES. I am WAYYYYY excitedbiggrin.gif , been wanting to do this one for a long time. More Q-view, probably Sunday.

I'm in the rub consideration phase right now, I'm trying to come up with something not too sweet and sugary...ideas welcome.
post #5 of 28
This is the rub I use in Competitions , don't let the sugar fool you.

This stuff has a really good spice to it, picked it up from a buddy who quit cooking Comps about 4 years ago

½ cup Paprika

1/4 cup Kosher Salt, fine ground

1/4 cup Sugar

2 tablespoons Mustard Powder

1/4 cup Chili Powder

1/4 cup Ground Cumin

2 tablespoons ground Black Pepper

1/4 cup granulated garlic

2 tbs Cayenne

For more hot & spicy increase Mustard powder and Black Pepper to 1/4 cup each

Good Luck, keep us posted

I would suggest adding any rub with sugar after you sear-it will burn badly.I have used the low sodium montreal seasoning and seared this and then rubbed with sugar based rub and followed smokieokies method.It will definetly cook in half the time of low and slow and mine have been delicous.Good luck.

Although some don't condone the searing of brisket I have personally been involved with SmokyOkie during the searing / smoking of them. Makes for some fine tasting meat.

Enjoy it! Keep in mind the suggestion for the lower sugar or to rub post sear. But definitely pack heavily with the black pepper prior to the sear. It will drive you insane.

Bring pics - we gotta have em

Before you go cutting that bad boy in half, I seriously recommend that you trim the edges down only enough to fit in a smoker. A whole packer will cook better then 2 halves. I'd trim away the thin side of the flat and not touch the other end (other than some minor fat cap trim-age). Wrap some bacon around the smaller pieces and smoke them to temp as well, but be aware they will hit 190 faster than the reast. It will be a good snack.

I never knew Wonder made Texas Toast. Not surprised just had no clue. Don't generally find it (Texas toast) here in Jersey.

Doesn't look done. I'd put it back in for 18hrs or so.

LOL At the supermarket, my wife buys "Texas toast New York Style." It's thinner and is covered with cheese.........

I've done okie's method before in the Fla. AZ. brisket throwdown-oh my was it GOOD-and I agree sear-let cool than rub-but looks to late now-the sear will char the rub so will alter some things-and as Josh states,try not to cut that baby in 1/2.good luck.
