I'm going to go ahead and apologize , my previous post was in the wrong spot...woops. ANYWAYS... This past thursday i purchased a 6.5 pound brisket...not the biggest but it was for $15 dollars and I am only making it to get better at smoking before i jump up to a $30 dollar brisket. Anyways , I marinated it in about three heeping spoonfuls of butter, and a a quarter to half of a bottle of worcestershire sauce ( sorry i don't write down my measurements i just go with it until it looks good lol.) While it was marinating a put on some sweet and smokey rub, i wanna say it was a lot of chipotle and it tasted almost like a brown sugar taste. I tested it and it tasted amazing , but it was a little too sweet, so i took a couple shakes of cayenne pepper and put that in the mix. I let it sit until saturday morning ( this morning ). It has been on the smoker for about 4 hours now. My temperature started out at about 285 , but with a little rescuing i got it down to about 235. I just changed my briquettes ...didn't really care too much for tem. I have a batch of mesq. lump charcoal in now with some wood chips in a aluminum foil box. ( couldn't find chunks around here ) . I say i got about another 5 hours or so on the smoker for it to finish. Pictures to come.
