First brisket flat on the WSM

  1. I've done a handful of smoking other meats but doing a brisket has got me the most excited as it is my favorite. On this 3lber I did a light seasoning of SPG then my own rub and then a light coat of Montreal Steak. Looks pretty already. I will post a finished picture too.
     
  2. Looks like a great start.  Everyone gets so freaked out with brisket but its actually pretty easy.  IMHO the key is not to let it dry out by cookin too low n slow.  I like to let er rip and place in a foiled disposable pan when it hits 170*F internal.  Yours looks like it's gonna be a good one!
     
  3. Yup. Plan on wrapping around that temp. It's moving along pretty well now but I know it'll hit that stall.

    Looking good!  That stall won't last long with a 3lb brisket.  Happy smoking!

  5. Heres how it looked before the wrap.
     
  6. Brisket is finished and hanging out in the cooler for a couple hours. Took about 5hrs from start to finish.

    Will post some pics after the rest.

  7. Here is the finished product. The wife was very happy and I loved how the smoke ring turned out.The dog was also very happy with how it turned out because he ate my sandwich as I went to the kitchen to get a beer.

  10. Thanks! Next time I'll cut them alittle thinner. That was my only compliant about it overall.
