    that's a mighty fine job for your first brisket. I looks delightfully delicious. I sometimes put a water pan off to the side in my smoker to add a little humidity to the chamber. Good[​IMG] job !

  9. Where? Every place I see tri-tip it's minimum $4.99/lb AND that's on sale.

    Our local restaurant supply (Pacific Northwest chain) Cash & Carry has the bulk packs of tri tip. Choice is $3.85 this year. 6-8 per pack. Angus with 2 per pack is $4 something a pound. I've cooked both side by side and there was no difference in texture or flavor, so I stick with the choice.

    I know right! Could not believe that my 13 lbs brisket a few weeks was gone in a matter of 30 minutes...my wife was soo disappointed that she was not going to have anything left to put into a recipe for another meal.

    Maybe I should have filled them up with hot dogs first! LOL

    Good luck.

    I remember my childhood when my mom couldn't keep my brother and I full. Two roasted chickens and potatoes for dinner and we were still waiting for her and my dad to finish so we can grab what was left on the serving plate.

    I live on the Easy Street with women only in the house. And they don't even like beef much. Except for brisket.

    Of course you win when it comes to shoveling snow or bad breaking yard work.

    Nice job hitting a home run on your first at-bat! I've done about 5 briskets over the years with mixed results. I smoked a brisket this weekend but overcooked it a bit. I think I'll start using the toothpick method because cooking it to 200 everytime is giving me inconsistent results. Nice job and hope you have continued success.!

    It's really a shame how the pprice of beef is now over inflated. my local Walmart is pushing flats for the prie of what i was paying for packers last year. oh well.

    OP, great job and congrats
