    haven't done a good brisket for a while..so here it goes

    used my mesquite chipotle rub, got the smoker up to 225 and used mesquite and apple for flavor. it took roughly 4 1/2 hours to get it to 145 internal temp.  i pulled and let rest for about 30 min. internal temp got to 152. started slicing and chowing [​IMG]




    as u can see, a ton of juice and tender tender tender!  

    thanx for looking.

    I have never pulled a brisket out at that low of a temp. I usually take mine up to 195ish then slice it. I might have to give the medium brisket a try.

    the last ones i did for work i took to 205 and pulled them..this one i wanted a bit more "red" and used them for some sammies.

    Redneck,that is a delicious looking piece of meat, thing is I have no teeth and have to go to something above 195*[​IMG][​IMG], but that's alright ; you go ahead and enjoy it.[​IMG]

    Hmmmm, I never tried that pulling temp---thought it would be tough.

    It sure looks mighty tasty, Red !!!!

    May have to try one myself.

    I thought it would be tough too!

    I sure like the pink color!

    Probably going to give this a try.
  9. Looks really good, although I would have to take mine to 195*. My family don't eat red meat. (but I do).

    it was very tender and juicy as you can see. i treated like prime rib or roast..worked out great for trying it the 1st time.

    I didn't say it would be tough---I said I thought that. I haven't tried it yet.

    And it sure looks mighty tasty.

    How did it compare in taste and tenderness to a brisket cooked to traditional temps?
