A Brisket Load

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hey everybody I finally tackled my demon and did a full brisket!!! Well 2 actually And an extra point ...and 2 Tri- Tips.   Might as well screw up big!!  I have been fearing doing a brisket for a while but I forced my self to jump in!  I vacum marinated all the meat at work with an Onion Steak marinade we have.

    Here they are just before going on the drum.

The  point and 2 tri tips
The drum a little high on temp Around 275*


 The smaller stuff on the bottom...They were way more marbled than the full briskets so I figured they could handle the heat.




Cinnamon was not too thrilled when I told her it would be 10-12 hours till they were done!

She took her nap!

5 Hours in 275*  beautiful Pecan smoke.Photobucket

Buddy perked up when I was doing the foiling!!
The tri tips foiled and the point is next.
All foiled and back into the drum!

Out of the drum and after a 1 1/2 hour rest they looked real tasty

Sorry about the pics the light over our sink plays tricks with our new camera.

Or I just dont know what I am doing???

 SOOOO juicy and tender!!!

 Not sure what I was worried about??!!

Actually the drum deserves all the credit... truly set it and forget it hot smoking!!!



Thanks for watching

It's just a hunk of meat, Just go low and slow. Foil at 150* and have a few beverages till 200* Let it sit untill ready,pull and gorge yurself.

Looks awesome..   I know a lot of people get very anxious when doing a brisket, but as long as you watch your internal temps and keep the TBS going, you will be fine.  Yours look great!  Love the tri tips.  wish they were cheaper around here..

Great lookin slabs o beef!!!

 I don't know why anybody is afraid of smokin a brisket . I don't think i've seen anyone yet that said ,I was scared and i tried it and it didn't work.

 There is a cut and dried technique posted in alot of places here that works fine.

 The thing that you must remember is a whole packer is probably one of the longest smokes you will do . You must have patience and allow yourself plenty of time. This is a long smoke that can not be rushed if you want to achieve brisket nirvana.

You should've called.  I would have been willing to risk the trip to try that first brisket (which still eludes me).


Nice job
