Brisket Flat on the UDS - QView

    I just finished my UDS on Friday (8/20), so I had to throw a brisket on for it’s maiden voyage. I wanted to try the in-the-pan method this time, so I set a roasting rack inside the pan to hold it off the bottom.  I definitely noticed the bark wasn’t the same, as well as the smoke ring. Still had plenty of smokey taste though.  I had my first experience with the dreaded stall. This has never happened since I usually run my briskets at 250 degrees, or else I’ve just been lucky this far.

    Meat: Brisket (flat) 4.45 lbs

    Rub: Three Little Pigs – Memphis Style

    Injection: Beef Broth and Dales Steak Seasoning

    Spritz: Beef Broth, Dales Steak Seasoning, Turbinado Sugar (every half hour)

    Smoker: UDS #2

    Fuel: Kingsford Comp/El Sahuaro Lump/Peach Wood Chunks

    Temp: 225

    Duration: 6.5 hours (stalled in the 140’s for 2.5 hours)




    Trimmed Up


    Fire basket ready to go

    Injection: 4 parts broth, to 1 part Dale's

    Spritz: Simmered this all together to break down the turbinado sugar, and spritzed every half hour

    After resting in it's rub overnight


    This was a good rub, first time I had tried it. Recommended by the good folks at BBQ Island in Chandler, AZ

    Running right where I wanted it

    Here it is after an hour or so.

    Flipped after about 3.5 hours

    Pulled at 190. Here it is after tenting and resting for an hour

    Sliced up with au jus poured back over

    Now your brisket looks fabulous there Thunder. It looks mighty tastey with the Au Jus and all.

    I think that's the best part when eating the leftovers. Really keeps the flavor on the meat
