    Brisket rescue!!!

    First time doing brisket. it's a 16-pound prime packer. I trimmed, rubbed, and sweat it for an hour at 2:30 am and I put it on at 3:30 am. The plan was low and slow at 225 for at least 13-14 hours. I checked it at 6 hours to spray with apple cider vinegar and the fat wasn't rendering much and it...

    Brisket to Wrap or Not to Wrap that is the question?

    I've had reasonable success with my briskets by smoking until 165; then foil wrapping until reaching 200-ish. Not real happy with the bark result so want to try taking her all the way past 200 with no wrapping. My smoker is a Masterbuilt Pro, seasoned with some off the shelf Terry Black's Beef...

    Hey guys on my way in from work I picked up a 15 pound Packer brisket from Walmart for around $47. I know they probably don't have the best meat but unfortunately I am on a budget.

    First brisket

    Preparing to do my first brisket tomorrow. I've done quite a bit of research feeling pretty confident. However, I do have one problem I have a small MES 35 and the brisket doesn't quite fit. My thought is to trim down the and possibly make burnt ends with it. So I guess the question is does...

    Smoked Brisket with Jeff's Maple BBQ Glaze

    I am about to smoke my first brisket. I came across Jeff's recipe for Smoked Ribs with Maple BBQ Glaze as well as his recipe for Smoked Maple Barbecue Turkey. I am wondering if this Maple BBQ Glaze would be good for a brisket as well? All comments welcome and appreciated! Thanks

    Delicious Double Briskets from 4th of July!

    So, I decided that brisket must be had for the 4th of July, and with about 15 ppl coming over, I needed to ensure leftovers so I opted for two since they were almost identical in weight @ 15# and 14.92# and less than 10% trim loss. I used the most coarse setting on my pepper grinder and did 1...

    Beef offers high amounts of protein per serving, but researchers say that eating too much red meat, such as bacon and hot dogs, has been linked to health issues. Can you guys suggest any alternative for beef. I personally love beef

    Does altitude affect "stall" time?
