Brisket Point - Burnt Ends for Potluck

    My dad was @ Sams Club on Sat and I asked him to have them cut me a brisket point. I wanted to cook some burnt ends, but didn’t really feel like the flat.

    Loaded up the kettle w/ Royal Oak around the Vortex. This is the first time I have tried lump around the vortex instead of briquettes

    Found out I was out of wood chunks as I loaded it up. Luckily I found a bag of hickory chips in the shed. Sprinkled them over the lump

    Used a starter cube on one end

    10 mins into it

    Put on the injected brisket point. I used Butcher BBQ brisket injection for this one. Then just Salt & CBP for seasoning

    Sorta hard to see, but got good clean smoke goin

    Once it hit 170 I put in a foil pan w/ Stubbs Pork, Tiger Sauce, and some unsalted butter

    Temp holding. A little more maintenance than w/ briquettes, but definitely smelled better.

    Sliced real thick before cubing up. Good bark & smoke ring

    I had to sample at this point

    Added some Mad Hunky & Brown Sugar, and a good pour of Webers BBQ Sauce (Sweet Molasses)

    Back on the kettle

    Done about an hour back on

    After a couple samples, I had to vaccum seal the whole batch for our Thanksgiving Potluck we’re having next week.

    I got to tell you...that looks awesome!
  3. If I had burnt ends that looked like that, I'm not sure there'd be any left to vacuum seal after I finished "sampling"!
