Title: "My First Brisket" (with pics)
Post by: MWS on May 13, 2005, 05:26:52 am
Here are some pictures of my first brisket. I smoked with hickory for 3 hours for a total cook time of 9 hours @ 210F. I think it was a flat portion (although the butcher called it a point?). I did an S&S rub with bacon on the upper rack. Many a great sandwiches were had...[:D]

Note the S&S Maymes Mac and Cheese on the side....[:p]

Man that is cool.  I cant wait to do a brisket.  The problem is I can only eat so much food.  So this weekend it is going to be 2 chickens and a couple slabs of pork ribs.

If that is just for you and the miss's, no not really.  Chicken for <b><font color="red">Saturday Dinner</font id="red"> </b>, Ribs for <b><font color="blue">Sunday Breakfast</font id="blue"> </b>and the Brisket for <b><font color="limegreen">Sunday dinner</font id="limegreen"> </b>.  <b><i><u>I don't see what the issue is?</u> </i> </b> [:D]  AND if you do any ABT's, they taste good anytime, though I do prefer them for breakfast[:p].

Have a great weekend.  Can one ever smoke too much?

Mmmm, looks good Mike!  That's definitely the flat.
What internal temp did you take it to and how moist/dry was it?

That was a 4 1/2 pounder and I cooked for a total time of 9 hours to an internal temp of 175F. I brushed with mustard and added a paprika etc. based rub and placed bacon on the rack above. I wrapped in tin foil for about 1 hour when done, and when I cut into it, that flat was pretty moist. I was pleasantly surprised about this because there wasn't a whole lot of fat on this cut. I think the mustard and bacon drippings really helped.

Mike I paid about $4.35 a pound.A little more than what I figured also.I made about 3 meals out of a 6lb brisket the first night with mash potatoes and the rest of the fixings,the next day sandwiches for lunch at work(the guys at work were drooling at the smokey aroma[}:)],I didn't share[:D])and we made up some beef dip the next night[:p].I am gonna do some searching and see if I can find it for cheaper.

Mike and Mike,

What does that convert to?  The trimmed briskets flats from Sams are about 2.67lb.

Typically does your beef cost more there North of the Border?

I think it all depends on where you live and where you shop. I live in a rural area where the choices are limited, therefore less competition higher prices.

Thanks Mike, I guess it's the same around here.  I live a bit rural also, just got to wait for the sales.

I was lucky, [:D] I caught Brisket on sale at WallyWorld the other day for $1.84/lb. Bought 2 of the suckers and after doing the trimming and reweighing I came up with about $1.96/lb. Cut them into flats & tips and vacuum sealed & froze about 3/4 of it.

Don't know if anyone else has had this experience at their local supermarket, but if I talk with one of the butchers and ask about getting a "Botson Butt","Tri-Tip", salmon fillets, "country style ribs", etc. because I smoke my own meat, it seems like they go out of their way to go in the back and cut me something special and give me a "sale price" on it--almost like it was a professional courtesy.  And if they don't have anything they think will fill the bill, they never try to sell me something "almost as good".  I had this happen twice now at local Stop + Shops.
