    I was going to wait till tomorrow once it was all cooked up to do this but was eager to get the pics uploaded will add to it as the day progresses tomorrow

    mustard with a bit of worsterschire and cider to give the other goodness something to stick to

    Dry rub was copied and modded a little bit from a recipe i found on here pretty sure it was pineywoods (big thanks for the help in getting me started on my first brisket) rub just tweaked a bit with whatever i had in the kitchen

    Can't wait to show off and eat the final product

    Sure am glad i took these pictures I forgot to tothpick so i can figure out the grain of the cut when done

    Yeah thats daddys little princess and she is 100% pure carnivore whenever i cook a big feast of meat the first thing she asks is if the fat will be good to eat (her fav food is pork chops)

    I would have posted this much sooner but strangely right after consuming all this smokey goodness i fell into a beef induced coma [​IMG] I will post the pictures in order with a bit of detail

    10:00 oclock this morning fired up up the smoker and by 10:30 had it going a steady 250 brisket went in fat side up and i just the smokey goodness do its work
    12:30 I flipped it fast side down and let it smoke for another hr
    1:30 into a 250 degree oven so i could go out for the afternoon

    4:30 expecting to open the oven and have at least an hr or so to I was going to add some mop jsut some apple juice till i saw this and temped it at 195 deg in the thick end and 210 ish in the thin, after not being quite sure i jumped on the SMF chat and got some great help thanks again piney jsut warpped it all back up in the foil and let it rest

    5:30 time for a slicing removed the fat cap and the very small amount of point that the butcher had left behind not enough to even worry about doing anything with but i pulled it out of the fat all the same

    Found the grain with ease once the fat cap was removed and started with the slicing

    Left with a gorgeous pile of num nums first stack is for sammies this bit got wrapped back up and placed in a towel while my side and aujus were cooked

    This stack was way to tender to slice jsut fell apart figure it will be perfect for making some rice and beans with

    And now the final pictures dinner, guess which plate is mine :)

    Served with some frozen predone potatoes from the grocery don't ever waste your time with these they are horrible and some au jus the au jus was a prebought packet from the store club hous ei believe but instead of following the directions i i replaced half the called for liquid with drippings from the roast this was phenomonal will def do that again

    Overall the brisket was great had a nice smokey flavor but there are some things i will change the rub might have been a bit aggressive and drowned the flavor of the beef a bit, as well the final product left a bit of a grainy feel in the mouth not sure what caused or how to fix this but tenderness was off the chart

    Thanks for looking and thanks for those that helped cant wait to do my next one but trying a pulled pork before i go back to a brisket next

    She loved it but wanted to eat the fat cap this kid seriously has some carnivore issues, the other day she wanted to put tomoatoes and salad dressing on a steak because she thought she needs to eat more veggies, but shes not chunky at all little demon fireball with way to much energy she probably burns off twice what she eats per day

    Very nice.... your kid sounds like me & mine . I always leave the fat cap on . If the carnivores in question dont like it they cut there own off. It is bad for ya but what the hell it adds alot to the flavor in moderation of course.
