    Brisket Pizza .

    Had a brisket fail last weekend , so lookin for a way to use it up . Had some dough in the fridge . Thought I'd try a pizza . Came out pretty good . Taste was like a cheese steak . The fermented dough makes a nice thin crisp crust . This was good , but would have been great with a softer /...

    Back from a brisket hiatus

    I took some time off after a few dry briskets. Haven’t had much luck with my stick burner - I seemed to have it down to a science with my old WSM... Giving it another go tonight on the offset, brisket is trimmed and rubbed and ready to rock. Going to throw on some butts as well for good measure...

    Well on Monday the weather was lousy and I decided to make a meatloaf. Since I won't drive my Mustang in the rain or when the streets are wet. I thought I would make one with whatever I could find here in the house. So this is the recipe that I came up with. I just took a photo of it so I...

    Brisket bark stuck to the foil

    Hey all, I smoked my first brisket yesterday and the bark was fine when the meat was registering about 162. I wrapped it up in foil and put a little apple juice in and got it up to temp (204) but when I took it out after it finished resting the bottom bark was almost all burned and stuck to...

    Confirmation on identification of a cut of beef

    Hi, a quick backstory... I had gone in for a 1/2 beef from a non-producing cow. I wanted some primal cuts to try dry aging. Specifically asked for a 109 and the butchers eyes basically glazed over. Enough of that! So, can anyone say for certain what cut of beef this is in the picture? Its...

    Finishing cook in the oven

    Hey guys, I’m new in here. How are we all? I have a question: How many of you, when smoking a brisket especially, would smoke it in the smoker for the 6 hours and then wrap and finish off in the oven? Is it better not to? Does it make a difference if it’s wrapped? thanks!

    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...

    Oven cooking brisket after wrapping

    Hi all, I’m a newbie to smoking but I’ve bought a Traeger Pro 22 Electric pellet smoker and am loving learning how to make delicious meals. I recently attempted my first ever brisket (only 6lb) and had a heart stopping 4 hour stall at 160F after wrapping it in butchers paper (it actually lost 10...

    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...

    My First Brisket

    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. I watched Aaron Franklin's YouTube video on how to trim and prepare the brisket and followed his steps closely. I...

    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...
