    Would love some advice for my current smoke session.

    I have a verticle gas smoker that I use wood chunks for, I am smoking Beef Ribs (thick boys) and a beef brisket, I got them to have a great bark and then wrapped them in butcher paper. I wrapped the brisket at 165-175 degrees and wrapped the beef ribs at 180 degrees. Once I put them back in the...

    Brisket frustration

    My brisket tastes smokeless. It’s the third time I smoked a brisket, and it came out tasting smokeless just like my first other twos. For this third cook I decided to throw in a rack of spare ribs to make sure there was no problem with my smoker or wood, and the ribs came out great (tender and...

    Brisket Choice

    My wife went to Costco the other day and bought me this brisket. I don't have the ability to smoke it and all of the fat cap has been cut away so it would more then likely come out dry like the last one. So, I'm wondering what my choices are, could use some advice. My first thought was...

    Brisket on the SmokeFire

    I bought a 13 pound brisket early last week to grind . Went back on my normal day to check prices ( Gordon's food service ) they had 3 or 4 small briskets at $3.75 a pound so I grabbed one . Trimmed out at 5 1/2 pounds . It's really flexible to start , so that's good . I mixed up an injection of...

    As many of you already know I was the lucky recipient of a free SRF Wagyu brisket. It was from a member on here who wishes to remain anonymous. Originally I was planning on smoking it for Easter, but the weather yesterday & today are perfect for outdoor grilling. So we did an all night smoke in...

    Prime Time Sunday w/Qview

    I was at Sam's club a few weeks ago and they had some Prime briskets that looked great and at $4.68/lb. Against my better judgement I didn't get one. Well After having some emergency dental work I was wanting to do something relaxing so I asked the wife if she could run by Sam's and get me one...

    I smoked up a 5 lb piece of brisket for 7 1/2 hours at 250F using hickory. I wrapped for last 1 1/2 hours. First time doing that and made a difference to final product. I think by wrapping it ended up smokier taste which is a good thing. Served up on toasted cheese buns.

    Extremely Fast Cook Times on Brisket & Butt with Insulated Cover - Can Dinner be Saved?

    Hi Folks, I'm seeing something pretty strange with my pellet smoker. I put a 9.5lbs butt and 12lbs brisket on my smoker at 225 and in just 7.5 hours, temps are 178 on the pork and 193 on the brisket (temp taken on the flat). Neither were wrapped. I've never seen cook times anywhere near this...

    Screwed Up a Packer Brisket

    Would appreciate any comments on how I screwed up a prime packer brisket. I monitored 3 probes in the brisket: flat, mid and point (temp profile attached). At stall, it was put in a covered aluminum pan for the rest of the smoke. It finished earlier than expected, so it rested for 5 hours. The...

    ETA: outside temp was in the low 20°'s. How should I continue to cook to make sure it reaches desired temp. Do I just monitor internal temp? Hi there! I’m hoping you can help guide me. I put my brisket in an electric smoker last night at 11pm. I woke up to find out the smoker turned off due...

    Best place to buy whole packer brisket? Austin TX

    Hey! I'm visiting Texas and I'd like to buy a brisket or 2 to take back home with me. I'm not from the US and brisket has gotten super expensive back home. Choice grade is about the price of a prime here in the US, if not more. So I thought I might as well take advantage of that and get a nice...
