Few from the prep


48hr dry brine

Ran it at 250 ish until it got 170

Tallow from an A5 packer I trimmed last year

Middle of the night hit 170 so wrapped with the A5 tallow

Probed tender at 198

Nice color, not as dark as I’d like but I was at a friends boozin so has to rely on my 12 yo to follow directions over the phone. He got carried away with the water pan so too much moisture to build a deep bark. Great experience for a jr pitmaster in training.

Great bend, and pull text was spot on. A great cook. My Irish couldn’t pull it out with a pathetic offensive game plan but a great night of brisket and football on the patio.

Not a beautiful shot of the flat slices but I was working on 4 hours of sleep and a bottle of Tito’s so best I could manage 😂. Thanks for lookin
Brisket looks great BB and always nice to have a youngster at home for help!
And was a good day for the Dawgs !
