    Nice looking brisket. One thing I'd mention...that's a BIG hunko-meat - get your rub on heavier if ya can, as it can take it! The mustard slather helps it take more rub, and hold it.

    Im with Rich on this one. Beef is a big flavor and it can take big flavors. My brisket rub includes flavors that would overpower pork or especially poultry. I pile it heavy on beef. However I dont use mustard. I rub it down with worchestershire then apply rub. After it soaks up the liquid then I shake on more rub. But thats just me...

    Load that baby up! My brisket rubbs are black pepper heavy(twices as much as pork rubs). Cover it well so you cant see the meat, then wrap it up nice and tight in big celophane(24 inch wide stuff) and rest in the fridge for 8-12 hrs. The rub will soak in nicely!

    well with ike swirrling over head i had one heck of a time. i got my brisket on saturday afternoon and planned to have it done early am. but the temps i had a hard time keeping at ideal. i had it on untill 3 am and still wasnt satisfied in the tenderness. so i was forced to cheat. we have a digital oven and after 11 hrs on the brinkman smoker i foiled with 3 layers. and placed fat up in the oven at 235 for an additional 5 hrs. so it shut off at 10am. and i left it in there foiled and undisturbed untill 2pm. and look at these pics. the smoker did its job with smoke and flavor and the oven finished her up for me while i slept. i couldnt manage temps asleep. but it was absoultly awesome. one of the best ive done and wouldnt hesitate to finish like that again if i had to. also i did sear it over flaming charcoal before smoking. not till black just like the edge you would want on a steak. to hold moisture. i mopped it with apple juice and maple syrup mix while smoking.

    heres right before i foiled to pop in oven at 3am.



    tools needed to carve. 2 forks. it wouldnt even let me move with a fork. fell apart.





    so i had some shredded brisket sammies with horseradish sauce while watching the race today. im a happy man. doing a fatty tomorrow. that will be a first. and no darn rain tomorrow. weve had about a foot in the past 2 weeks.

    Hate it all you want...but try it. Not a HINT of mustard taste remains. And it holds SOO much rub it's crazy. [​IMG]

    ya ive heard that. i just might. i will hold you to your word lol. i just dont like mustard taste at all. if it is gone i could probably do it. but i would have to have wife do the smearing. i cant stand the smell either. always have been trned off totally to the smell and taste. but if theres no HINT of it left. i will give it a shot. im game for trying anything once.[​IMG]

    Another " you won't taste any mustard flavor " . I put ketchup on hotdogs and ham sammies , No "Mouseturd " for me [​IMG]
    Tried it on a pork shoulder and it was great at holding the rub and no leftover flavor at all [​IMG]
    Didn't try it on my first brisket , but will on my next one [​IMG]
