my first brisket ever...QVIEW WITH FINISHED PRODUCT

Discussion in 'Beef' started by ralphbrown05, Aug 7, 2010.

  1. ok here it is, a nine pound packer that i got from wally world for about 18 bucks...not sure if thats good or bad considering that this is my first one...i rubbed it with salt, garlic powder, onion powder adobo, and some mckormicks (check spelling) sweet and smokey rub...then layed it fat side down in the pan and poured some worchestshire sauce over it and let it sit that way for a couple hours then turned it over fat side up...i rubbed both sides with the seasonings, put it in the smoker at 230-250, for a UFC party thats tonight...so hopefully itll turn out good...yall pray for me that this turns out good...

    happy smoking




    here it is after 3 hours in the smoker...using apple wood chips, and mopped with apple cider vinegar, worsh sauce, brown sugar, and onion powder...lookin good so far but in for a loooong day..

    No,, it will be sliced like its sitting in the pics..  If you look at the 2nd pic, see what looks like lines in the meat from the top left to the bottom right of the pic?  Thats the grain.  You want to slice perpendicular from that.  Which would be from the bottom left to the top right of the pic.

    wrap around 165 deg. On the burnt ends i cube the point in bite size pieces, Pieces into foil pan , Heavy dusting of rub and some sweet sauce. toss or stir to make sure that it all gets a good coating and back on the smoker for around 2 to 3 hours. Resulting in some great meat candy.
