    I'm an vacation and my 50th birthday is tomorrow so a whole brisket went in the smoker tonight. I'm using Fortheluvofsmoke's Wet/Dry chamber method. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/141647/brisket-with-wet-to-dry-smoke-chamber-q-view-method.


    Trimmed it.


    I'm going to make summer sausage soon.


    I rubbed it down generously with Bilbo's rub. It is in the smoker at 225 with a 1 1/2 quarts of water in the water pan. I'm smoking with black cherry hunks in my chip pan and apple pellets in the AMNPS lit on one end so the brisket will have smoke all night.

    Happy Birthday WC!  There was a time when I thought 50 was old...but now that I'm on the back side of 50 myself, it really doesn't seem so old after all...

    I pulled the brisket at 19.5 hours at 200 IT. As an afterthought I wanted to make some burnt ends. I separated the point from the flat but the whole brisket was just like butter. My wife thought it was so good the way it was that we just foiled both pieces and put it in the cooler for a long rest. I wish I would have thought of burnt ends sooner in the day. Here is the final picture just coming out of the smoker.

    It takes longer to get stuff done when you get that old.
