South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
Well, this was the worst of briskets transformed into the best of briskets! NAILED IT! These guys like it heavy on the black pepper. I take the untrimmed weight in grams X 1% for the black pepper. Untrimmed weight X 0.55% for the salt. Perfect....

The trussing REALLY helped achieve an even cook with this misshaped cut of meat! I highly recommend is if you get one with a thin flat or a funky cut point.....

I have been cooking briskets for a long time. Up until I stumbled upon this forum, they were always hit or miss. Not any more! The brisket knowledge here in SMF is legendary! And it has helped me to up my brisket game. The guys at the firehouse sure appreciate it. I have a standing maxim.....If they buy it-I will cook it. This is brisket #4 for the year for the guys....

You sure did nail it! Looks amazing Keith!
Thanks Steve! Might be my best ever!

That is a mighty fine looking brisket, Keith. Great work...
Thanks GonnaSmoke! The guys raved over it and were drooling while I sliced it up.

Out freaking standing Sir.

Thanks Chris! I sure wish that point had not been butchered so badly! I took some pieces and sliced for burnt end finger food appetizer while we took pictures... OMG soooo Goood!!!

Great looking brisket! Nice job!
Thanks CTX! 11 1/2 hour smoke for a 12# brisket... worth it!
