Labor Day Brisket - My First Brisket in the GOSM

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Started it last nignt, Sunday, at around 11:30PM. Got a great buy at Walmart.




Here it is rubbed and ready to go after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.




And now it is 9:00AM. It has been stuck at 176 since 7:00AM.




I sat with it for the first 2 hours until I got the smoker temp stabilized at 127. Got up at 3:30 and checked and it was at 130. Got up again at 6:00 and it was still at 130. I couldn't believe that the temp stayed solid all that time.


More to come later. I also have a huge pot of Cowboy beans on the stove and I will be making some ABTs later in the day.

Those temperatures seem low by about 100 deg to me!

You're right. Lack of sleep. The smoker stabilized at 230.

 That sleep thing will get you every time, 230⁰ sounds more like it. Looks good. 


 I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to smoke for the weekend so I took the easy way out.

 I went over to a friend’s house, he did a whole lamb on a spit over an open fire.


 Oh yeah, life is good!

Really nice thanks for sharing- special rub used?

I used a rub that I concocted. It is not overpowering, but does add a nice flavor to the meat.


Jim's Brisket Rub

1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
3 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin

1,2 or 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper (depending upon how much heat you want)
