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 the WSM. OK now for the photo’s!

Here is how it came.

After trimming & dusting with S&P. I used the meaty part of the trim for burgers.

Then wrapped in Saran Wrap, and into the fridge for 24 hours.

Next we took the trimmed fat & ground it & rendered it down to make some Wagyu tallow.

This stuff is like gold!

OK it’s about 5:00PM on Friday afternoon. I have a pan with a grate in it, and the grate is sitting on 2 onion halves, so the brisket is up off the bottom & can get good smoke from underneath too.

I poured a can of French onion soup in the pan to give it a little extra moisture & I’m smoking it fat side up to protect the top. Since the upper part of a WSM is where all the heat is located.

Into the WSM, on the bottom grate, with a full water pan, and the old trusty Guru keeping the temp steady all night.
I put 3 probes in the brisket, 2 in the flat, and 1 in the point. The smoker is running at 225.

Here it is about 14 hours later.

The bark is right where I want it, the fat is rendering nicely, so now for the butcher paper. Of course you know I‘m gonna use a bit of that Wagyu tallow on the paper too.

And into a 250 degree oven until it probes like butta!!

It only took about 3 hours in the oven to finish up. I let it sit on the counter until the temp dropped down to 180, then wrapped it up in fresh paper & back into a 170 degree oven until lunch time (about 4 hours).

As you can see it came down to about 160+ & just stayed there.

After the rest, it’s time to see the finish!!

I did not get any plated shots, cause we just stood at the board & pigged out. We even made a couple of sliders and ate them standing up. Well that is one thing I can take off my bucket list. I finally got my own Wagyu brisket. Thanks for stopping by folks, and thank-you to the kind gentleman who gave me this brisket. :emoji_sunglasses:

Al that is just perfect!! Like bauchjw bauchjw said I’ve never seen a smoke ring like that! It’s literally all the way through. Bend and pull test both spot on! I’ll splurge on one of these at some point for a special occasion. You can see how juicy it was on the board! Good job.

Wow Al! That is beautiful! Oh and that tallow! Dressing the meat with that is pure perfection! The problem with a bucket list item like that is you are tempted to make it a double! Need to see if you can get another smoke ring like that!
