Evening smokers. Stopping in to post my gameday brisket. Started with a prime packer brisket from Sam's Club.

I started working on this Saturday night late. Mixed up a beef injection of water, better than bouillon and beef broth.

While this cooled in a ice bath I trimmed up the brisket. Removed almost all of the top fat and then about 2.5lbs from the sides and the fat cap. I left the cap about .25in

I left the tip of the point as I like to chop it.
Injected and vac sealed and into the fridge until sunday night.

Mixed up a rub of cbp, course kosher salt,sugar,garlic powder,onion powder,chili powder, chipotle powder and gave her a heavy dose.

Fast forward a couple hours to 1am and it was time to go on the smoker using pecan pellets at 225°

After about 9.5 hrs it stalled at about 162°

This is what it looked like right before I wrapped. Normally use pink butcher paper but lo and behold my daughter stole it from me and used it for homecoming signs at school. So foil it was. No pics of that. But total time on smoker was about 13hrs. Pulled it off at 202° when it probed like butter. Pulled it off and put it in cooler for 4hrs waiting on game.

Then I prepared peach beans.......

Threw them on the smoker for the 4hrs I waited on the brisket.

About 20 minutes before game time I sliced the brisket.

That is perfection on a plate! Everything on that plate makes me happy just looking at it. I never heard of peaches in beans, then when I think about it, of course it works! Huge Like. RAY

Correct. It feels similar in construction to the brown paper bags from the grocery store. Because you're smoking low over indirect heat though, the likelihood of it catching fire is quite low. Not impossible, but pretty unlikely.

Looks awesome. I am always jealous when I get to see everyone else's prices they get to pay for prime brisket. Up here that brisket probably would have cost me $70, heck I think I still ended up paying $50 for a select brisket.
