    Well since we had such a beautiful weekend I wanted to try my hand at smoking a brisket.

    I started with a nice 5lber from Costco which I then applied some Worchestershire on to act as my "glue" to hold the Tatonka Dust.


    I then got my smoker up to 225-240 and lit the Amazen with Hickory.  Smoked it this way for a few hours then had to refill and used Oak.

    Here it is in about an hour and a half


    Here it is right before I stuck it in the foil


    And lastly here is the final sliced goodness.


    Total cooking time was probably 10 hours, which seemed long but well worth it.

    Thanks for looking.

    I pulled it a bit early I think 195ish it wasn't fall apart tender but it was amazing nonetheless so I don't even know if I would want to wait longer?  Yeah I foiled it at 170 and then played the waiting game.

    Brisket looks real good, nice job on your first brisket!
    What did you think of the flavor of the Tatonka Dust seasoning?

    I love the Dust, been using it on all my red meat since I got the stuff from Owens.....so like 5 months.  But yeah it was great on the Brisket, I'm planning on doing a Prime Rib in the near future and I can  see Tatonka Dusting that as well.  Thanks for looking.
