My 2nd Brisket

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I forgot to take pics of all the prep work. I like whole briskets & my wife will not let me trim any fat. Thursday I soaked the 13 lb brisket in Zesty Italian dressing. Friday I washed it off & put on my homemade Cajun rub. Sat morning I fired up the smoker. I put the brisket in a foil pan, fat side down & smoked for 2 hrs then turned it over & smoked for 2 hrs. By then I had some good drippings. Took brisket out & set on grates, fat side up. I mixed the drippings with a can of beer & some BBQ sauce & used that for mopping. After about 4 hrs I turned over the brisket so fat side is down. Smoked it until 180* then put in pan, poured some mop sauce on it & covered with foil & smoked till 190*. Let it rest & the wife went to cutting.
Here's a pic of it before reaching 180*:

And a pic of the sliced brisket. Very moist, tender, and needs no sauce:

Just want to say thank ya'll for all the help & ideas. There will be more smoking at Barney's..........I'm getting hungry........

The bark alone on that briskie makes my mouth water, let alone looking at the sliced pics. Great Job on your smoke! What kind of smoker are you using?
