Second Smoke Ever, Brisket Anyone? with/Qview

Discussion in 'Beef' started by chris540, Dec 27, 2009.

  1. Hello all,

    As some of you may have read in the roll call section, I received a brinkmann vertical for Christmas.

    I did my first smoke christmas day and i turned out so well i could not wait to try it again.

    Yesterday, I went to the store and came out with a brisket flat and a rack of babybacks.

    I injected the brisket with some beef stock and apple juice mixed with a little rub.

    Rubbed everything down and wrapped it up for the night. This morning at 7:00 am . I jumped out of bed ready to go. I got the pit going and away we went.

    The ribs I ended up smoking with the 2-2-1 method. Spritzing with apple juice every hour.

    The brisket stalled out at 155 degrees for over 2 hours. I was getting a little worried but thanks to all the advice Ive read here i knew to let it ride it out.

    I foiled the brisket at 170 and continued smoking till it hit 190ish. I pulled it out and rested it in a cooler for about 1.5 hours.

    Anyway, I owe so much to the SMF forums and all of the advice and tutorials i have read from here.

    Everything turned out perfect. I cannot wait to hit the store looking for my next project. This stuff is just too much fun.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any in process pics. Just the finished ones.

  9. Hey all,

    Thanks for all the kind words.

    I really have picked up so much from SMF. I don't think the results would have been the same without you all here.

    Fine , might fine, great looking Q. I see you paid attention to the forum on that stall. A lot of people get fooled by it, and start to figdet, tweaking this and tweaking that. Great job and thanks for the Qview for us "Q" addicts.

    Amazing job for a second smoke. Glad to see you are putting that new smoker to good use!

    I guarantee that you couldn't get anything as good as that if you went out to eat...It is an artisan craft to turn out great 'Que, and I can tell you are well on your way. [​IMG]to you...keep up the good work.
