If your separating towards the end of your cook the point and flat will tell you where to separate.
Fat side up for me.Solar
Fat side up or down ? I know that's debated a lot. Just wondering how you do it with all the fat left on.
Glad you liked the rub! Congrats on the brisket!Just reporting back on the brisket I did this weekend based on this post. I took the smoker out to our desert property to do the brisket out there - forgot all my thermometers, didn't even have the one for the smoker. Just decided to time it instead. Smoker was set at 230 degrees. Started fat side down for 3 hours, flipped it, went another 3 hours, flipped in into a pan for 3 hours, and then flipped so the fat side was up at which point I added some consomme to the pan. Let that go for 2 hours - started checking every hour with the toothpick. It went about 16 hours total before the toothpick slid in smoothly. Then I wrapped it in foil and towel and let it rest while I made ribs, so about 6 hours. It was still hot when I unwrapped it. I then trimmed the fat off and separated the point. Yeah, I know I was supposed to do that before and cube it and put it back on the grill, but I decided to wait and I cubed it and sliced the flat all at the same time. Y'all, it was the best brisket I have ever tasted, let alone made myself. I kid you not, it was GONE in a matter of minutes. 12 lbs of brisket for 10 people + ribs and the whole family was in a food coma, lol. I have lots of leftover ribs, but NO brisket. BTW - used the same rub recipe from solaryellow . Delicious. Thanks for posting this.
I haven't made a brisket in years but last time I did this is how I did it. Unfortunattely we prefer tri tip over brisket so its our go to cut for a roast.So, anyone else tried this recently? This is still my go to for brisket and I am always thrilled to look back and see how many also employ this recipe. I actually give a link to this to those who ask me about brisket recipes.
