I got a nice 11.3 lb brisket at WalMart just before Christmas. Last night I slathered with yellow mustard and rubbed with my own brisket rub recipe. And now it is time to fire up the smoker.


It is going in the GOSM at around 11PM tonight (12/30/2010) and should be ready for a nice rest in the cooler tomorrow afternoon.

More pix to follow as we progress.
Well the New Year's Eve brisket went very well. We had some of our closest friends over, including a couple who drove non-stop from South Dakota to North Carolina just so he and his wife could be back with us to enjoy some brisket. Here is the first cuts of the brisket. It was tender and very juicy.


And here it is heaped on a platter (after I removed the point and hid it away for me).


We all had a great time, ate way more than we should have, and celebrated the New Year in style. Thanks to all of you who have helped me learn the fine art of smoking meats on this very fine and friendly forum. Happy New Year Everybody!
