first brisket packer..

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I started on my labor day brisket. I only did one other before this and it was a small one and not fit to eat.. That was back when I knew all there was to know about smokin'...I been reading and stealin' ideas from this forum and found out how much I DIDN'T know..
You guessed it, the first one was just an exercise in chewin'.. I just put in a lot of labor makin' dog food..

This one is actually EDIBLE !!..[eatable?] anyway it is GOOD !!!..


Started out as over 15 lbs and I trimmed off about 5 1/2 lbs of fat that I saved for hamburger. [sirloin]



in wrapper



trimmed , not well done but servicable.



I rubbed it down with Sea Salt, Course ground black pepper , bit of plain paprica. Just simple stuff as I usually try to overdo it and just make a mess outta it.



wrapped up like a xmas turkey in shrink wrap..



Let set in fridge until 3;30 this morning and got it on the fire at 4;30 am
255-245 deg for a total of 9 hours. went a lot quicker than I expected but
I got an acurate therm.. here at 2 hours ..



Rolled it over at 4 hours..



I put it in foil at 5 hours so it would not have an extremely HEAVY smoke taste.. I pulled it out and put it in the cooler at 9 hours after checking in the internal temp at 185- 195 degrees according to how thick the section was I was sticking..
It stayed inna cooler until the corn and dressing and cabbage was ready.
about 2 hours I recon ..

Sliced..



Corn..



Some GOOD EATIN' !!!



Thanx for the help folks.. Hemi...icon_redface.gif

U know I think , along with everyone else I guess, that pork IS a lot more
forgiving than beef brisket. AND Kansas City HAS got some good beef
bbq. Hemi..PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

Thats your second one you did a fine job. then you throw in some coren which I hope you smoked it too. You cann't beat smoked corn. Great job and keep it up
