    The Secret To Good Sliced Brisket Defies Conventional Wisdom

    Thanks! Been on a bit of a hiatus from smoking. WSM wore me out. Things about 7 years old and needs constant attention. Low and behold for my upcoming birthday I just got a new RT-700 bull! Burnt it in the other day, seasoned it, and I am going to give that baby the honor of cooking me up a...

    The Secret To Good Sliced Brisket Defies Conventional Wisdom

    To bring this baby back to life, question regarding burnt ends. If I wanna take the point and make some meat candy, separate that and cube it. Sauce it. Hit it with a little rub. I’m doing that shortly after it gets off the smoker though, prior to foil and rest. Correct?

    Thin Blue Smoke? How??

    Bama..... When you do that instead of the minion method about how long does your fire go?? When I tried to do layers like that my fuel seemed to go a lot quicker than when I did the minion method! Thanks, Chris

    Doing a whole brisket in burnt ends?

    Had a similar situation.... Called my butcher and he was happy to sell me just the points. I bought 4 points at around $4 a lb and 4.5 pounds a piece. Pricey. Yes. But people LOVE burnt ends. In this case requests piled up, made them this way to avoid eating 30 lbs of brisket by myself. Ha...

    Brisket+WSM+Fuel dilemma....

    OK...I have been smokin' meat for about two years. I have done a handful of briskets (all packers) and I love this cut of meat. Typical smoke for me: SPOG+Wooshy morning of cook. Then come about 9PM fire up the WSM and brisky on by 9:30 for an all nighter. I get up hourly to check the smoker and...

    Going to smoke my first brisket on Sunday with a Qview

    This all looks GREAT! I think for your guests briging their PJ's and crashing on your couch are well worth it. I'd stay for a brisket breakfast. That bad boy looks like it'd make some NICE burnt ends!

    Here we are.... 4 hours into the cook, meat is probed... both chuckies are over 140 degrees and are actually within 1 degree of each other. Here are some pics of the meat, the temps, and I just threw on 10 japs for some ABTs! Should be a good one :) Something about just having a smoker half full...
