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 Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2490.jpg.html

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 Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2494.jpg.html

Used a starter cube on one end Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2510.jpg.html

10 mins into it Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2512.jpg.html

Put on the injected brisket point. I used Butcher BBQ brisket injection for this one. Then just Salt & CBP for seasoning Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2517.jpg.html

Sorta hard to see, but got good clean smoke goin Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2529.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2530.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2537.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2539.jpg.html

Once it hit 170 I put in a foil pan w/ Stubbs Pork, Tiger Sauce, and some unsalted butter Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2547.jpg.html

Temp holding. A little more maintenance than w/ briquettes, but definitely smelled better. Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2557.jpg.html

Sliced real thick before cubing up. Good bark & smoke ring Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2571.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2575.jpg.html

I had to sample at this point Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2578.jpg.html

Added some Mad Hunky & Brown Sugar, and a good pour of Webers BBQ Sauce (Sweet Molasses) Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2582.jpg.html

Back on the kettle Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2587.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2588.jpg.html

Done about an hour back on Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2593.jpg.html Tritip Brisket Point/IMG_2596.jpg.html

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