    Had a friend get me a brisket from his food service that he uses for his restaurant and it is by far the best looking brisket I have ever bought anywhere! These folks specialize in premium aged Angus beef, so was anxious to try one of them.
    No way this went in the pellet pooper! Salt and pepper only and in my New Braunfels stick burner!
    Should be done by 7 pm or so, but will be worth the wait! Planning some tater salad and smoked baked beans with it

    It finished a bit faster than I anticipated, but came out awesome! I think this might just be the best brisket I have ever cooked! It looks a bit dry in the pics, but trust me, it was very moist and tender!
    I foiled it at 170 with beef broth and brewed coffee and finished it to probe tender which was about 205.
    Used only salt and pepper and it was absolutely wonderful tasting meat! 20190614_172553.jpg

    That is a mighty pretty brisket, before and after smoke, and a great smoke ring.

    If you don't mind; What was the price per LB. and what was the USDA grade?

    Thanks.
    It was $2.69 per pound. It was not labeled what grade, but was not as marbled as "prime" grade I have bought in the past from Sam's club before. Prime is just too fatty for my tastes
