JGW,
That is one beautiful Texas Style brisket!  Thank you so much for showing us your technique.  There will be no winner declared as the winners are those of us learning from your expertise.

Thanks so much JGW!

Thanks guys.

Classic...yeah, cooked entirely in the Bradley.  6 Lbs at the start, I figured 9 hours (6 x 1.5), but pulled it at 8 hours or so for the FTC.  Normally, I start checking the internals in the last 2 hours.  Kind of got away from me (drinking beer, telling lies), but the end result was tasty.

Let's see what my brisket brother tosses our way.  I'm looking forward to it.

All I can say is WOW......JGW....WOW!!

Allright, pulled after the smoke, right about 6 hours, figured I'd give equal time for both...Now boated up and cooking away @ 200, I can say check your oven temp if you go this route, my oven will start at the lowest temp (170) will ramp up to 240 then down to 162, then 210 and down to 162...etc...etc before it stabllizes.

With Ky's permission, I would like to declare this Texan showdown a tie. All forum members are winners and both contenders have proven themselves to be excelant briskets mentors.

Hats off to WTS and JGW for a job well done.

HR is absolutely correct.  This championship bout is clearly a draw!  I would be proud to sit down with either of you and enjoy some brisket.  They both look great.

Thank you WTS and JGW for putting on a clinic.  I know I speak for everyone when I say thank you.  JGW, you were a really good sport.

WTS - That looks Amazing.  Next time I'm in Texas - you cook the brisket - I'll bring the beer.  If you come out to Cali - I'll cook and you bring the beer.   :)

Thanks to KyNola for goading us into this  ;D and everyone else that took part in the fun.
 
 ;D :D ;) :)

After the cook, before the FTC



And sliced after 4 hours FTC



The one on the left is from the offset, right from the Bradley...Only difference smoke ring on the offset brisket and alot more hassale!  Taste is the same.

I want to Thank You guys for letting us do this, and a big Thanks to JGW!  Like all things we smoke there is no ONE way to do it!

Normally I would say that a tie is like kissing your sister, but in this case, unless there are samples shipped to all of us.... I think it is justified....

Nice work both of you!
