JULY 5th BRISKET (Better Late Than Never)

Discussion in 'Beef' started by gary s, Jul 5, 2015.

  1. Didn't make the 4th so I smoked a brisket today.

    Picked up a nice little 10 pounder , Got it rubbed down and on the smoker about 6:30.

    Used my standard rub, Salt and Pepper, Cooked at 225 º Low and Slow Took right at 11 hours.

    Used Pecan and some lump  Nice mild flavor, Juicy and tender with a nice bark.

    Rubbed down and ready to go

    A few pics after a couple of hours

    Got the beans on

    At about 5 hours

    Pulled after 6.5 hours to wrap

    Sorry no pics of it wrapped I used butcher paper (Actually used Parchment Paper) 

    Here it is after 11 hours and a 30 min rest

    Grandson's Plate

    My Plate with a little German Potato Salad

    A few slices for tomorrow and a chunk to Vacuum seal and into the freezer

    Thanks for Looking

    Gary, NICE..... Good looking brisket, great bark and color and smoke ring. I believe that left over chunk could get here by Wednesday and be great packed in some dry ice (just thinking). :points:

  15. Thank you    Farmer, Brian, Joe and WHB   for the nice comments and points.

  16. And thank you  Dirtsailor, CrazyMoon, nepas and Bearcarver  for the kind comments and the Points
  17. Thanks Aggie, much appreciated.  I started using butcher paper about 4 years ago, I like it better than foil.

    Foil holds in all the moisture and actually steams the brisket. It will speed up the cooking process and at times 

    this is not a bad way to go. 

    The butcher paper hold in Some moisture but not all, I find I maintain a better bark with the paper.

    Hop this helps
