Brisket squeezed into the smoker

off the smoker, 11.5 hours later. bark was great. (no wrapping)


point removed and cutting up for burnt ends


burnt ends 1.5 hours later ready for eating


flat sliced up ready to serve


all up pretty happy with the outcome.  Not sure I'll rush back for such a big brisket, which I took this time because it was all my butcher could get.  Past briskets have been at the 13-14 pound untrimmed. I've found these to be better eating.

Thanks Al.

You've got me inspired to try smoking some cheese, after looking at your efforts.

Thanks Weev. You got me thinking now. I've never actually done pork burnt ends, just enjoyed the barky bits on the pulled pork. I should give it a go.

Thanks Briggy.  it was a pretty tight squeeze, and the edges got more than their fair share of heat. but it fed 13 of us and gave me some left overs.
