3rd set of briskets, 2nd WSM try, 1st rub shootout, nth wine and coffee

Discussion in 'Beef' started by siletzspey, Sep 18, 2011.

  1. My family helped ace off the last set of briskets, so I nabbed two $1.88/lib briskets at Cash-n-Carry in Eugene, OR. Besides being my first over-night smoke, and the Maverick wireless thermometer with min/max alarms worked great, my wife and I also want to contrast 2 rubs that came from the web.

    I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

    By a fair amount we enjoyed the first rub, as it had a far more complex flavor that enhanced the mesquite smoke. The second more-basic pepper rubs tasted like, well, pepper on beef (not bad, but not as thrilling).

    The meat came out moderately tender, even after 4 hours of resting, but I think I chickened out on letting the temp go beyond 190F. My rookie effort with select-grade briskets was slightly more tender than these choice-grade briskets.

    EDIT - I posted 300hx800w pictures, but they came out small. Sorry. What's the best image size to post?
