Look it's my first brisket

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
after smoking some pork butts, ribs and abts I figured I should try the brisket. I picked up a flat at Sam's for about $20

I then rubed it down with the following rub recipe:
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs kosher salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1 Tbs dry mustard
1 Tbs onion powder
2 Tbs garlic powder
2 Tsp cayenne

Put it in the MES at 225 with an aluminum pan full of beer, garlic and onions underneath. Smoked to a temperature of 170 moping with only beer. Then I put the brisket in the pan fat side down and covered with aluminum foil. I placed it back in the smoker and pulled at a temp of 191.

I then wrapped in foil and wrapped that in a towel. It stayed there for about 3 hours... when I sliced it the meat was still hot.

I served with a bbq sauce from a local bbq restaraunt that I am going to try to recreate. It tastes delicious. Thanks for checking out my view and more important thanks for all the good information.

thanks a lot. Im positive my first brisket wouldnt be this good if I hadnt been reading the info on these forums. If anyone ends up using this rub I would recomend cutting the cayenne in half.

Fantastic job on your first brisket. It has not been that long ago for my first. Very intimidating at first. But the rewards are awesome! Not worried now are you?PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif
