Double Decker Brisket on a Traeger

Discussion in 'Beef' started by smokinjimmy, Oct 24, 2014.

  1. Just thought I'd share a couple of pictures from my mod today to add a second shelf to my Traeger 07C I purchased this spring at Costco. I am smoking two 16lbs briskets at 225. I've smoked for years on a New Braunfelds Bandera offset smoker and then a WSM 22" with great results. I haven't been as happy with the Traeger. I'm used to using Red Oak for brisket and apple for ribs. I don't like the Traeger pellets but I'm starting to get better results with a few other brands.

    Any way, hope to keep you posted on the results if this latest smoke.

    Looks like a great start. Really like the picture of the two brisket in the smoker.   Which brand's of pellets do you prefer over the Traeger's?
  3. I've used Louisiana Grills completion blend and worked great today on the two briskets. Also bought a bag of Old Hickory Oak as I like the oak flavor for brisket and even ribs. Will use some apple in my Amazing smoker with the ribs along with oak in the hopper. Here's a few pictures of the briskets this morning after a 16 hr smoke at 225 on the Traeger (2 x 16 lbs).
  4. Here's a few pictures of the finished product. Brisket turned out perfect, cooked to 190 internal temp then let lest in foil till cool. Trimmed to fit in the vacuum packer and off to the freezer until our work holiday party in December. Cooking 2 x 10lb pork loins tomorrow :biggrin:
