    This is the biggest one I could find in short notice. It was just a flat of 4.42 LBS for $4.79 a pound![​IMG]

    In the smoker at 230˚ for 8 1/2 hours, with 5 1/2 hours of Hickory with my A-MAZE-N-SMOKER.

    Foiled at 165˚ INT, and back in until it hit 190˚. Then I left it in, but killed the heat. It coasted up to 193˚. Then I left it in for another 2 hours, and took it out. It was at 185˚ when I removed it. It was tender & juicy, and GREAT!

    Sprayed a mix of Apple Juice (8 oz) & Worcestershire Sauce (4 oz) every 1 1/2 hour, after first 2 hours.

    From Wegmans:


    Rubbed & ready for over night in fridge:


    Ready for smoker:


    Filled with Hickory Dust & lit one end:


    Fresh out of smoker (this is half of it):


    Half of it sliced:


    Test Sammie with Au Jus & Horse Radish:


    My dinner the next night:


    Close up

    Good eye Raptor,

    That one sticking up to the railing is about 11' tall so far. That's one of my BLT providers.

    Good looking brisket, Bearcarver.  Can't believe they're getting that much per pound though.  We've been buying them here at Sam's Club for $1.98 (full packers).  Guess I'd better get a couple stocked up.

    Yeah, I gotta shop around a little better next time! I just kept putting it off---then I said, "I'm getting one NOW!" That was the best I could do in a hurry.[​IMG]     But boy was it tasty & tender & juicy!

    Thanks all of you guys for looking and your real nice comments!

    Looks delicious! Love the horseradish with the brisky. I almost bought a 5lb brisket this weekend from Publix but they wanted $4.99 lb. for the sucker because it was all trimmed up. I picked it up to check it out and my wife looked at me like I had lost my mind. She says "$25.00, you better put that back or you are walking home". Hey, I'm the man and cook of the house, if I want it I'm buying it. [​IMG]  So, naturally I put it back.  [​IMG]

    Looks gorgeous, BearCarver!!

    (also, tell plz Mrs BC that whe has some might nice looking Longaberger baskets back there...)

    Do you grow your own horseradish?

    Thanks Shooter1,

    Hopefully I'll never have to pay that much again. You made a wise decision.[​IMG]


    Thanks Princess,

    The only thing I grow is tomatoes & hair. I realize home made horseradish could be better, but the best commercial horseradish made comes from just a few miles from my home town----Kelchner's (Dublin, PA) IMHO.

    I think Mrs BC grows those damn baskets![​IMG]

  19. Horseradish is so necessary!

    Beats me!

    It's supposed to be a poor cut of meat, only edible if you make it like we do, or in the pressure cooker, or crock pot.

    But actually only edible the way we make it ![​IMG]

    Maybe it's because this is a PA Dutch area, and all PA Dutch & German wives have & use pressure cookers.
