First Brisket w/ Q View

Discussion in 'Beef' started by smokenmirrors, Jul 3, 2009.

  1. I decided to smoke tomorrow's Fourth of July celebration today so that I can have fun too!

    I smoked two racks of pork spare ribs and a nine pound brisket that I cut in half. Here we go:

    Brisket out of the pouch:


    Cut in half:

    Rubbed with PC Willy's Green Chile Seasoning and Rub:

    Other half rubbed with Kirkland Sweet Mesquite Seasoning:

    Wrapped up overnight:

    Two pork racks, one rubbed with Mesa Rosa Chipotle, the other with Corky's:

    Ready to head into the smoker:

    Ribs heading into foil with a bit of pineapple juice:

    Brisket done:

    Another shot:

    and ribs:

    Things went a little faster than I expected this time around. The briskets finished at about 5 hours, and the ribs were done in about 5.5 hours. I plan on reheating everything tomorrow while I do a batch of ABTs and possibly some beans. The sweet mesquite rub ended up scortching a bit (you can see it in one of the pictures), I guess it has some sugar in it. Oh well.

    What does everyone think? Did I do alright for my first time? Suggestions?
