But I am still around.  Traveling back & forth from California to Texas & Missouri takes its toll on a person.  But of course, my love of smoke has not diminished.  I had some free time this weekend, so it was off to the Butcher's for a brisk.  This one was 10 lbs @ $3.98 a pound.  (So, does that say, PRIME CUT??) My before shots were corrupted, Boo Hoo, but the rest of my shots came out pretty decent.  Enjoy.

Of course, these are the mustard & rub shots.





It was smoked with Mesquite for 1.5 hours @ 230°, then my temps spiked to 255° for the next 4.5 hours.  I used my WSM 22.5 smoker with just water, no spritzing with the fat cap up.



I pulled it at 165° to slice off what I belived was the point to make burnt ends for the first time in my smoking history.  I then foiled & placed back on the smoker until it hit 200°, pulled it off & wrapped it in a towel inside of the cooler for two hours.  The burnt ends came off at the same time, which was probably a mistake as they were a little tough.  The total cook time for both was 6.5 hours. 



After the slice, placed in foil & back onto the smoker.



This is the portion I used to cube for the burnt ends.







They did not turn out as I had hoped.  I had to finish them up in the over @ 275° for 3 more hours to get the desired tenderness I was shooting for.

After two hours of rest time.















Dinner was black-eyed-peas, kernel corn, cole slaw, a baked potatoe & the brisk.  Thank you for looking.

Thank you Scar!  Had to stick at least one in before I get back on the road.  Trying to get a notebook on my X-mas wish list so that I can keep up with the site.

I kind of over did it with the BBQ sauce because I knew I was gonna stick them in oven to finish them off.  But I did get a shot of them in, right?  Thanks Mark.
