    My daughter is going to be at my sons in Lake Norman NC this weekend. She asked if i could make a flat for her.

    Sure

    You got me this new camera so i might as well figure out how to use it.

    Sorry if the pics look dark.

    Got the flat with a slight trim, rinsed and patted dry.

    Applying a good rub down.

    I dont like charred black brisket so mine are different.

    Clear wrapped and ready for FTC

    FTC= FOIL

    FTC= TOWEL

    FTC= COOLER-------------->FTC Now shut the top and let the brisky get happy and moist.

  10. Looks perfect! I am working up to doing one soon. The pics are looking pretty darn good
     
  11. That still looks like a big flat to me . . . . .and no harm done, a bigger flat smokes better, I hear.

    I was eying up some much smaller flats at Sams Club and decided no.  I still need the crutch of a fat cap on top.  Just don't feel secure enough to do a flat as is.  Someday, maybe I will,  I lack the discipline right now.

    Come spring, a different story.  I'll be breaking out the weber and back with charcoal and wood chunks again, watching the temperatures. 

    Maybe come spring I'll try a flat early.  Lord knows they aren't expensive.  It's just that I want every animal I cook to taste great.  Maybe I'm being too timid in this.  Don't know since I haven't tried.
     
  12. Well you can drop some off then. [​IMG]Looks great Rick.

    Looks delicious Rick!!!
     
  16. Looks juicy and delicious.
     
  17. I've never seen a brisket sliced as beautifully and I'm guessing you sliced after it cooled down some. 

    Lake Norman is in for a treat.  I've been out that way many times, but only to repair computers.  For my Austin Texas buddies, Lake Norman is a dam lake just like your damed Lake Travis.  The only difference, Lake Norman is a dam lot better managed.
