Going to smoke my first brisket on Sunday with a Qview

Discussion in 'Beef' started by ejbreeze, Jul 22, 2011.

  1. I'm reserving my spot here for my first brisket Qview on Sunday.  Tomorrow I'm going out to buy a packer at the neighborhood butcher. The point will go into a chili recipe for later eats and the flat will be eaten with a smoke sausage and pinto bean favorite plus a beer corn I found on this site. Let's Rock!

  10. Brisket things are starting to happen today.  I went out and got my brisket this morning, a packer, and trimmed it up leaving about 1/8 inch of fat cover on.

    I then made up some of Jeff's Naked Rub recipe.  I found using the Kitchen Aid did a fine job of mixing.

    [​IMG]

    I made a little extra for another time.

    [​IMG]

    Laid my brisket out in a pan and gave it a cheap massage with a little EVO and Worchestershire.  I could of sworn I heard it moan :)  Then I generously sprinkle Jeff's Naked Rub on one side and waited for it to soak in before turning it over and doing the other side.

    [​IMG]

    All wrapped up and tucked away in my Man Fridge down in the garage.  Tomorrow I'll be up at 3:30 am to get the party started.

  13. Bear's bench got me thinking about smoking chairs and that you guys must have some fine ones that took years to break in.  I would be interested in seeing them so that I know if I'm doing the whole smoking thing correctly.

    Went to Walmart yesterday and bought some Royal Oak coal after you guys recommended.  Also I found a firewood place close to Angels Stadium that has every flavor wood chunks possible.  I chose Pecan.

    Since I will be stumbling out of bed in the morning early I wanted to get everything set up tonight.  I like using the Maps gas to get things started.

    I did have a little time today to make one mod of many I want to do to the smoker.  The Trailmaster seems to have a common problem of leaking smoke out the left side of the lid.  My last smoke I tied down the handle to stop this but it was a pain to get in and out.  So I installed two stainless slide bolts on both sides that hold the lid firmly closed.

    Smokers all clean with a filled water pan ready to go.

    Friday I found UPS brought me my new thermometer, Maverick ET-732,  just in time for Sunday's smoke.  I still need to figure out how it works.  This is the new version that gives a alarm when your out of range and can transmit up to 300 feet.  I will test those claims tomorrow.

  14. It's 3:00 am.  I couldn't sleep.  Kind of like the night before a fishing trip where you like awake all night thinking about it.  The smoke smell in the morning air is strong.  I hope the neighbors don't wake up thinking the hillside is on fire.

    Still here!

    Looks good so far!
     
  16. I finally get a day off to do nothing!  Might include a trip out the back gate, down the path and into the water for a bit, but otherwise I'll be here looking for updates and lots of Qview of your progress.  No popcorn for me...guessing Bear and the others are gobbling it all up, plus it may lead to a case of the popcorn farts!

    Good luck on the day's smoke!

  19. Bacon and hot sausages are on.  These are for the beans later on.

    Rock Your Sock Pintos


    3    Large can Pinto Beans drained

    12   ounces Coca-Cola

    14 1/2 ounce can whole tomatoes undrained

    2     medium onions chopped

    1/2  pound smoked bacon sliced

    3     tablespoons chili powder

    2     tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    1     tablespoon ground cumin

    4     garlic cloves minced

    4     fresh Serrano peppers chopped

    1     teaspoon salt

    5     smoked hot Italian sausages

    In dutch oven combine all ingredients except the salt and sausage.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.  Cook slowly stirring up the bottom occasionally for at least 2-3 hours.  Add more water if the beans begin to get dry.  Stir in the salt and sausage during the last 30 minutes.
