Needed to cook some Q this weekend so I got up early and started


10# packer rubbed down with Tony Chachereâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s creole seasoning



2 chunks of cherry (in memory of Scott) and some pecan chunks



In the smoker at 7AM. Cherry and 8# Royal Oak to start will add pecan after that.



Briskets done



Put it in a pan covered with foil at 170* and still I ended up with a burnt end?



Point cut away from the flat+



A slice showing the ever popular smoke ring



and when I put the brisket in the pan, I put two chickens spatchcocked on and smoked them for a couple hours.



Still have a butt and a bunch of stuffed zuchinni to do tomorrow

Man that looks great Rodger!

I looked everywhere for a fresh brisket for this weekends smoke and couldn't find a one! I think they turned them all into corned beef for St Pattys Day.

Richard -

They never advertize fresh briskets here only corn beefs. The only place I can even find them is the butcher shop $$$$ or Wally World. This week neither had them fresh.

You guys have been making me drool all over the place.


Some great briskets on the forum lately!

Wow, that brisket looks good! I have a few questions, what temp did you take the brisket? What did you do w/point? Chop? Pull? Make burnt ends w/it? It looks like you cut it w/the grain, did you? I ask because I usually need to cut mine at a diagnal, almost w/the length. It just looked different than mine do when I cut.

BTW, very nice smoke ring! and love the outside color.

Morning Al
,

I put the brisket in a pan and covered it at 170* and took it up to 200* before I pulled it off the smoker. I cut a couple of pieces off after I pulled the point off and then the grain changed and I had to turn it around and slice from the other direction. It was tender enough that the couple of pieces that was cut with the grain was still pretty easy chewing.


Randy,

I'll post some pics and a recipe when I get started on the zuchinni's.

There is an old post buried back in the vegetable section by Doug123 where he did some and then I did some later. Good stuff.

I need to find a brisket on sale. I found a pork loin for the top shelf, but it has been a while since I did a brisket and I have been craving!
