a few pic's of the finished brisket







they pulled awesome with the bear claws.  tender, juicy and very good flavor.  i am pleased with my 1st attempt at briskets, with the help of everybody here.

Your 1st attempt with brisket ? I'd love to be there trying some of that brisket. I love brisket. Yours looks wonderful. But I can't taste/smell anything....just hear my tummy growling.

That looks excellent Redneck!!!

I never pulled a Brisket.

I always pulled Chuckies & sliced Briskets.

Looks like I gotta try pulling a Brisket!----That really looks good!

Thanks,

Bear

Looks really good, but with this blizzard coming on I can't make it there that fast.

as far as i know,  total success with the brisket
  no complaints on anything.  i did have one salesman question me why i cut the fat cap off.  he said he always leaves his on and trims after the fact.  personally..i think it was easy to cut off when cold and i had no issues with it being dry...  well he's a salesman and knows everything..and he does not have SMF..

The salesmen that used to come to my cabinet shop could be a pain now and then.

I used to get them when I'd say:

"How come you have pockets in your pants?----You salesmen always have your hands in somebody else's pocket---you don't need your own"

Good job Red Neck!  There is always something satisfying about cooking for large groups.  I personally enjoy that aspect of smoking the most. Keep it up!

He's cute, but if you don't allow him people food, on your way back from hunting, the two of you stop in a bar for a cold one & a sammy, what is he going to eat? They don't have dog bones in bars.

The last buddy I lost was part Black Lab & part Springer.
