    Its 30 deg and sunny in Chicago its a heat wave, lets smoke. Took a 4 1/2 pound flat cut corned beef brisket and soaked it for 4 hours yesterday changing the water every half hour. Rubbed it with broun suger, black pepper, paprika, garic & onion powder, and a groung up bay leaf. Put it on at 2pm central time along with some chicken breasts marinated in italian dressing and some in teryaki. Also 2 plain ole fatties.

    Kinda odd, but yesterday I was in the mood to try something new and went to g.store to get a corned beef brisket. Before going I checked other q sites and a few people where doing them also.

    Mine was a flat cut about 5#'s, it was cured w/a packet of spices w/it. All I did was pull it out, add seasoning and put it on smoker. I foiled at about 160 and it seamed to take forever to get there. I pulled it off at 190 and let rest for bout 45 min then sliced as thin as I could.

    Juicy and very tasty, but not as tender as a "normal" brisket. I have read that that is the nature of the beast. I can't wait for the pics Duke!

    Well here is the finished Corned beef. Foiled at 150 and pulled it at 190. I wrapped it in foil and put it in the fridge overnight. Very tender and has a unique taste. I don't know if I will try this again. In my opinoin it is better out of a crock pot but you don't know until you try!

    I have done several but I didn't soak it as long as you did. The first one turned out awsome...verry tender and tasty the second was about as you described yours.

    My buddy smoked a corned beef briskey a while back. I thought is was a little on the salty side for a main course but he didn't soak it out like you did. It was great sliced on french bread with swiss and cole slaw the next day however.
