A 16# choice Brisket was delivered to me today @8:30a.m. by the Captain on shift with my Cousin. Will prep it tomorrow morning, put it in the smokehouse around 10pm tomorrow night for an all nighter. Gonna serve it Friday night at the station for the guys...for anyone that want to follow along for the ride.

If you have a Rouse's near you, go check them out....

Just put the brisket in the smokehouse about 10:30p.m.... bringing the temp. back up...230*F now; shooting for 250-265ish.

She's a big one too...17.91# untrimmed...and I only trimmed about 2# of fat off of it, so call it 16# trimmed. Nobody should go hungry! LOL!!! Seasoned up with Dalmation rub...

I was smart this time....went to sleep early @ about 6:30 and got a good rest before the cook. I'll be up most of the night for the night owls that want to tag along for the ride....will post a que vue when I add wood chunks in about 2 hours...

My 36cu.ft. outhouse style smokehouse..same one that is in my avatar. I use wood chunks for 80% of the heat ans for smoke. Propane for 20% of the heat just to dial it in tight. I use it mainly for smoking large batches of sausages and snack sticks. But it can smoke one mean brisket!

Using Hickory as I don't have any white oak chunks cut at the moment, and neighbors would not like me doing it in the middle of the night! LOL!

Been working on my maturing chamber while the brisket cooks. Almost done with it! Took some time to clean up my work space too...found a few tools I had been looking for since the start of this project! LOL!
