"My First Brisket" (with pics)
« 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.
