These are a little late, but this past weekend brisket turned out awesome. I appreciate all the help you guys gave me and advice. I followed it to a tee and the brisket (8 pounder) was a hit. There was NONE left.

I rubbed it with Stubb's Rub, smoked over hickory for 4 hrs, then finished in foil in the oven for 2 hours taking meat to around 200. Had a great smoke flavor, and was juicy and tender as heck.

Thnks again for the help and advice.



Great looking food dukhntr. Gotta love it when everything comes out that good. Thanks for sharing

Keep Smokin
Ya know!! Your biggest hope when cooking for company is that everything will turn out perfect, and they will love it. Problem is.......that's what happened. I had my teenage nephew over and between his appetite for everything, and mine for almost any type of smoked meat and the rest of the folk that was here, there was none left for anyone. Kind of disappointed me the next day, I instinctively went to the fridge for leftovers and was sadly reminded of "how good it turned out".
First off congrats!!! I love to smoke brisket.
And I know what you mean by cooking for company. The trick is I save alittle off to the side for yourself.
Squeezy...point well taken. Like I said I'm new at this smoking thing and am still learning.

DeeJay, I think I am going to do another brisket soon. If not then I will be doing ribs fo sho. I also wanna try one of those fattys and those stuffed jalapeno's smoked sound good too. Soooooo much to try....... is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
