Innagural smoke on new custom smoker. Brisket and fatty.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
After 4 seasoning smokes with an empty smoker, I finally got to put something in it!!! I smoked a little brisket that i got at wally world. And a buffalo chicken fatty. I posted about the fatty last night so this will be about the brisket. It was a 3 lber that came pre seasoned. I was curious, so i figured, if im gonna ruin a piece of meat.. i would rather ruin one that i didnt really create. The smoker worked great. The brisket stalled for quite a while at 159 then came down to 152 for about an hour. I pulled it at 172 and foiled it for 30 min. Cut it open and it wasnt that bad. I would have preferred a hand rubbed brisket, hands down. So i decided to cut this one up into small pieces and turn the whole thing into burnt ends. Those will be on the smoker today along with a turkey that is already on. Here is the brisket.

It came trimmed, not much fat left. about 1/4 inch cap.

The blackened hunk after 6 hours.

after trimming the cap for dicing and slicing. MMMMM.... burnt end sandwiches today!!

It seems to be working great. This thick steel takes longer to heat up than my brinkmann pitmaster, but it also holds temp very very well. Considering its 25 outside.. and im maintaining 325 right now for my turkey without much babysitting, i'd say its doing great! It is eating up the charcoal though...
