Friday night brisket

  1. It has been quite a while since I have done a brisket and somehow I got the itch. Stopped yesterday and picked this up.


    Rubbed it down, wrapped it up and chunked it in the fridge last night.

    Laying on a 18x24 cutting board.

    Loaded the Jimmy with pecan and hickory. Cruising at 225.

    The things we do to fit a hunka meat in a smoker.

    Security on duty and keeping watch.

    The plan is to pull it off the Jimmy after 5 hours and finish it in the mes overnight.
    Updates to come.

    Smoke it up.

    I'm in..

    Doing my first brisket tomorrow. It's a 9.8 lb point. Starting at 5am.
     
  3. It's midnight, brisket has been on the Jimmy for 5 hours. Time for it to go in the mes and me to go to bed. Probed it with the maverick, IT is 133.


    I will check on it in 6 hours unless the maverick alarm goes off.

    Smoke it up.

    Sounds like a plan..... Sticking a butt in tomorrow for Sunday.

    I know this is going to be a great brisket.

  6. Thanks Foam. The 7 Spice is good on everything else so I am hoping it is the same with brisket. As far as my security, he is always hungry, lol. But it always surprises people that I can set a plate of table scraps in front of him and even if I go inside he won't touch it until I tell him he can. Now his dog food is a different story.
    Not that you need it, but luck with the butt.

    Smoke it up.

  7. I haven't done a brisket in about 6 months so it was time for one.

    Smoke it up.

  8. Glad I started this brisket last night. I am wondering if it hit that mythical first stall I have heard a couple of people mention. More than likely it's just taking its own sweet time.
    13 hours in and the IT is 160

    Smoke it up.

  9. Looks good,  6 months is waaaaaaaay to long      gunna be good

  10. Preciate it, Gary. And yes, six months is way too long.
     
  11. The IT finally hit 185 just shy of 19 hours. Toothpick slid in easily. Separated flat Went into the ice chest and cut up point back in the smoker for burnt ends.




    The flat came out almost perfect. The seasoning is outstanding. The bark is a little soft but the tenderness was great. The point itself was a little chewy but made good burnt ends. Overall I call it a success.
    I have already made plans to use part of it tomorrow, so I will update this post then.
    Thanks for looking.

    Smoke it up.

  15. Brisket looks great, but more importantly, where the heck do you live where you can buy brisket for $1.97 a pound?
