Doing a party today and one of the items on the menu is a big brisket.  I also did some pulled pork the other day for this.  But the brisket was the big item.  I picked up a 14 pounder from Sam's and went to town on it yesterday afternoon. 

Started with a little trimming.  The bottom got a pretty good trim job and the top just got thinned out a little bit.  I also scored the top to get some penetration on the rub.  The rub was a full batch of Jeff's Rub.  I went ahead and injected some creole butter in this beast as well



After several hours



After 16 1/2 hours it made it 183 degrees.  This is getting sliced for sammys so I went ahead and pulled it.  Its all foiled, towled and sitting in a cooler now for a few hours.  I will be taking my big rig to the party and using it to warm everything up.  Plus add a little more smoke to it.  For the brisket, I used the Smoke Vault.  I was dialed in on this smoke and I would go several hours and never adjust the heat. 



I will post pics of the Q at the party when all put out.

Well, I screwed up.  Things got a bit crazy after everything got sliced up and put out.  I never (forgot) got a chance to get pics.  But it was all a huge success and almost sold the smoker a couple times. 

Sorry for not getting any money shots.
