I see that I picked another good weekend for an all nighter. I have been craving brisket and I guess so was everyone. So mine starts out normaly with the rub (gotten from an exchange with Beer-B-Q) Next came the smoke into the vault 24" at about 1:30 am saturday night. Then with alot and long talks (in chat) to Bob, Joel and Pete which were all doing briskets. So we're in the smoker at about 230-240 for the first leg. Oh yea this is some of the stuffing in the boxes to Iraq. The other one is already full and we had 2 more with cookies. I was surpised when I when to the post office that it was the same price as domestic mail as to Iraq. So that will make it easy for him to receive more boxes. Rubbed up (a nice 12 lber) and ready for the rest of the day in the refrig. After a bunch of hours time for a spirtz and some more Qview for ya'll The foiling and then back in. After and hour and some in the cooler and the point cut off it's time to slice with the family for sunday dinner. We had our newest grand daughter #10 up for the weekend from Vero Beach another reason for the brisket the family really eats A close up for the smoke ring, the flash took most of it but it's still there. Now Joels was the first to finish and he did some burnt ends and they were out of this world. So bob might have been planning on doing them but now everyone was doing them specially after he posted them. OMG they looked good. I have never done them so here we go, with alittle BBQ sauce this one form an exchange with the DUDE. Back into the smoker and then out a couple of hours later. Then it came to me....... I said self you will be doing more of these ends for sure. These things were little bites of heaven they just melted in your mouth and with such great flavor from the smoke and alittle flavor from the sauce then you caught alittle heat in the back. They are soooo good. Next time I gonna start with theses and then eat dinner. Oh yea the rest of the meal had some real mash potatoes, some steamed carrots, and then some garbage beans, follow with some mexican corn bread. Sorry no Qview but the hungery family starts eating as the food hits the table. Dessert... NO Their wasn't a hungery belly in the house. They were all over the cough with football. Yes we liked the turn out too.. So thanks for looking and yes I do wish you were here. I did my best to bring you here.
