I found a 12 lb. brisket at wally world the other day for $1.65/lb. and a turkey for $.68/lb.

This will be my second attempt at brisket, my first was 6lbs and came out pretty good so now I'm going for the bigger meat today! This is going to be my first Turkey also.

6:00 am, getting started with the fire and smoke.



I didn't get before pics of the brisket yesterday when I started separating it and trimming fat but here are the point and flat smothered in Jeff's rub after refrigerating last night:





I trimmed most of the fat off even the cap, I plan on spritzing it often enough, and the last brisket I did I didn't trim it at all and really should have
we'll see how it comes out.

On the UDS with a little hickory.



And just because it was cheap too, I have a 13 lb. turkey I brined yesterday under the brisket.

Wish me luck. I will also do a more detailed what and how on my blog (it's allot of fun and it gets my friends and family looking at my food when I put it on facebook) the link is in my signature please stop by and make some comments if you like.

More pics to come.

Turkey is done and wrapped in foil to rest a bit, the brisket is chugging along at about 195 and ready to come off soon

Well, my first turkey turned out great, moist, brine was just right, pretty tasty bird, the inlaws loved it.



The brisket was very tasty, but it was a little on the dry side, I figured I cut off too much fat. It had a nice smoke ring though.





It was all in all a good eatin' meal

Thanks,

go easy on trimming the fat next time.  I find when I pull it after the smoke that the fat just peels off in my hands and I can reduce fat consumption by removing as much or as little as I want.  Keep at it -- it only gets better (and easier)!!!

Well Laurel (sumosmoke) said you were off to a good start. Well I'm here to say that you finished with quite a bang up job on the meat too.
