Searching for the perfect brisket

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Once again I am attempting a brisket. They always seem to kick my butt. I have added some Qview I think.icon_neutral.gif

The brisket spent the night marinating in Pirates Gold, AuJus, and Hot sause. Then Treager Prime Rib Rub was applied. Put on the smoker this morning early. With luck it will be dinner.icon_confused.gif

PS. Thanks for the Qview tutorial. Now we see if I was able to read instructions.

Are you planning on eating late?

Or better, what time are you planning on eating?

Well good luck with your brisket.

Depending on when you put it on, what temp your smoker is running at and what time dinner is will determine if it will be ready in time, and don't forget you need to let it rest for an hour before eating, you could go as low as 30-45 minutes if you had to.

Looks good and I like the sound of the marinate it sat in overnight.

Went in at 7 this morning. Plan on eating around 6 this evening or later. icon_rolleyes.gif

I think you'll be ok in time for dinner if it went on at 7.
What was it, around 4-5lbs or so?

Long as your smoker is running good steady temps you shouldn't have a problem though you can always crank the heat up a bit if you need to but if you do be sure to keep them steady since fluctuating temps can cause your meat to come out more tough or dry than you would expect.

Yes that should work. When working brisket more time is better. I do them different than most people when they are single like yours I pan them.

She weighs 6lbs. I am cooking at 240 right now. I plan to pan the beast with my marinade as a mop in a few hours. I'll post more Qview then.
