    Aerial Brisket

    Each year, my college buddies get together for a foot ball game. The only bad news is that it's in my hometown, Buffalo NY, and the team we watch is the Bills. This year, it will be extra rough, as we're doing the Monday night game against the Patriots... There will be drinking and crying...

    My first Brisket

    This is something I wanted to do for a long time. First, I want to thank Chris and 357mag for there advice. Okay, let’s get to it. This is the first time I’ve ever had brisket, so I have nothing to compare it to. With that being said, it reminded me of beef short ribs. The brisket took 16...

    Bison Gameday Brisket

    Made up a brisket flat last weekend for the NDSU game up here. Got a 5lb'ish brisket flat and rubbed with salt, pepper, and just a little garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and Mexican Oregano. Got it on the smoker a little after 7am using a mix of B&B lump charcoal and royal oak briquettes...

    Brisket On the New Pit Boss Copperhead 7 Series

    I bought a new Pit Boss Copperhead 7 Series smoker last weekend and was finally able to do the first smoke this weekend. I have 2 kids under 3, so I wanted a smoker that I wouldn't have to tend to quite as much, and this pellet smoker definitely allows for that. The brisket was a 14lbs packer...

    FIRE WENT OUT! Any advice for a "stop and start?"

    Folks I'm ashamed to say I let the vent on the bottom of my trusty Pit Barrel Smoker get loose (and told myself "I'll tighten up that screw later!" and oh boy, now it's later) and it slid shut last night in the middle of an overnight 12 lb. Brisket smoke. Woke up to a cold fire and a dry, cold...

    brisket advice sought

    Hi all I bought a small (4.5lb) brisket flat that I plan to smoke tomorrow. I don't do brisket near as much as I do ribs and pulled pork and it has been awhile since one that I did came out the way I was hoping. The last two or three times I have tried a flat, it comes out decent but each time...

    The Science behind The Stall...

    Randomly came across this article today in my Apple News feed. Short version; the stall is due to evaporative cooling according to Greg Blonder, a professor at Boston College. Interesting read, thought I’d share...

    Attempting a big ole flat

    We have some friend coming in from out of town, so I decided to smoke a brisket, some Mac and cheese, and some chicken quarters. The wife went shopping, and instead of a whole packer, she came home with an 8.5 pound flat. I have 2 delemmas. First, I've never done just a flat, and I just got...

    Finally, a brisket everyone liked!

    Like many, brisket has been my nemesis. While I've smoked many that have been acceptable, I never was satisfied that the end result was at least a 9 out 10. The son-in-law brought me a 13# Wagyu from a Ranger buddy of his (who has gone into raising cattle) and asked me to smoke it. Well, I was...

    Smoke/sous vide/smoke brisket test

    Inspired by a post about pastrami and sous vide, I am running a test. I cut up my packer this morning, and am using a 1lb section for a test. I used a SPOG rub, and low smoke to 120*. Now it is in a bag at 135* in the sous vide bucket. I made a quick red wine based marinade and put it into...

    Thawed Brisket Question

    A few weeks ago I bought a nice, prime whole packer. About 13lbs. Tossed it in the spare freezer for a later date. This past Sunday, I see a water trail coming from the spare freezer and realize the freezer door was not properly shut (less than an inch gap). I had taken a bag of ice out about...

    First time smoking

    This weekend is my birthday and first one in my own home so I decided to smoke a brisket. I will be using a charcoal grill and be using the snake method. Now I was only able to order a 7 pound brisket so hopefully that will work since everywhere I look says 10-12 pounds. Any tips or tricks...

    Where to buy the best meat at the best price

    Hey everyone, I am new to this forum and new to this group. I had a quick question for you Dallas/North Dallas area folks. Where do you buy your brisket, ribs, chicken at? I currently just go to Kroger/Walmart when there is a sale (just bought pork ribs for 1.67 per LB.) But I wanted to know...

    First Overnight for the 4th

    I decided to do my first overnight brisket to get ready for the 4th. It started as a 15# packer that I trimmed up and rubbed with coarse pepper and kosher salt. In it went at 9:30 pm with Hickory smoke between 265-280 measured right below the meat. The goal was 275 but I just couldn't hold that...
