    Needed to cook some Q this weekend so I got up early and started[​IMG]

    10# packer rubbed down with Tony Chachere’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[​IMG]

    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.

    You are living on the wrong side of the state...fresh briskets advertised in most of the stores here..[​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]

    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[​IMG] ,

    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.[​IMG]


    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.
  14. WOW Rodger, That loook`s great.....my stomach is rumbbling , making me hungry !!![​IMG] ... seeing all these briskets here, i gotta do one !! ok take care !!![​IMG]

    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!

    Don't know if there is a "County Market" grocery in Shreveport or not but they have packers on sale this week for $1.27 #. I know there is one in Ruston near the Tech campus. Thats not tooooo far if you are looking for one.

    Jeff, do you have a Sams Club anywhere near you??? That's were I find mine and every once in a while they have packers, but they allways have pretty decent sized flats.
