The head of housekeeping at my side gig got a sampling of the brisket flats I had taken for the ladies I work with there. He asked me to do a whole brisket for him. Our schedules worked out to do it this weekend.

Found a 16 pounder at Sam’s.
trimmed it up and a liberal coating of Kinders Salt, Pepper, Garlic rub with a worsty sauce binder.

onto the smoker for a over night ride at 225 degrees with a liberal handful of mesquite chips and a couple chunks of pecan for smoke. Will update as I go.

13.5 hr cook. Flat went to almost 210 degrees before it probes tender. Passed the jiggle test. It’s now in the oven set at 170 degrees for a nice rest til it’s time to deliver.
And heres a pic of me and my grandson, Tucker, talking over the finer points of smoking a brisket. My dad took this yesterday during our family Christmas at my brothers house.

I’ll get Taylor to send me some sliced pics when he cuts it.
Thanks for checking in.

Loved the brisket pic Jim, but that pic with your grandson is priceless!
But be honest, pretty sure the words coming from you were... " now Tucker, to be a really good enabler, you need to..."

Have a Merry Christmas!
