Well, it's just above freezing here in Ohio today with an 80% chance of rain starting around 7 p.m., so most normal people would be staying inside.....not me though! I got a 14 lb brisket sitting in the fridge right now that I rubbed and injected this morning at 3:30 that will be going into the smoker at 7 tonight. I was so dedicated to doing this smoke, I went out and bought a canopy just so everything would stay nice and dry! Anyway, enough teasing, here is a qview of the brisket right before it went into the fridge I played around with my rib rub and altered it for the brisket. The rub consists of: Light Brown Sugar Sea Salt Pepper Garlic Powder Onion Salt Mustard Powder Paprika Cayenne Pepper This is the first time I've used an injection in the smoking process, but that consisted of: 1.5 Cans beef broth 1 Stick of butter Sea salt Pepper Garlic and onion powder I'll be using the injection to mop the brisket as well. More to follow since I'll be up all night!
