Labor Day Brisket and Other Goodies.
« on: September 06, 2010, 12:55:08 pm »
After this smoked finished:

http://forum.bradleysmoker.com/index.php?topic=17777.0

I gave the Bradley a short rest and a cleaning to get ready for this:



Seasoning of choice was this:



Seasoning/mustard slather/seasoning



6 hours of Hickory. Cabinet set at 225* Got everthing in about 1 in morning.

This is a noon shot, Meat IT 148*



At 2 I added:

Eddy sausage 2 racks



Veron's Pork and Crayfish Sausage



And Veron's Boudain



4 more hours of Hickory and Apple and bumped the Cabinet up to 240*

The Sausage and Boudain came off at 4:30. What a treat!



This is the Pork and Crayfish sausage.



I'm here to say ..... Veron's know Boudain! The little Boudain Dancers

aren't getting any of this Boudain! This is for Grand Pa Boudain Dancer. ;D





And here's the Brisket at the 16 hour mark.

Here is something I have been playing around with.

I really don't like the alum foil sitting on the back half of the rack

But I like the idea of re-directing the heat of the element.

I bought a stiff oven pan cover and trimmed it and bent down the

Back and slide it behind the v-tray rack.



This was taken after 8 hours into the Brisket smoke.

How did it work as far as not directing grease towards the element?

I'll know forsure when I cut this Brisket.

I used it also on the pre-labor day smoke and had no had spots on the Chuckies.

I am dualing out my OBS and I removed the Fan and "thinking" about a

heat shield mounted just a little higher up the wall.

It was still bent down as you can see, had no problems.

I have a cple ideas I will try. Possibity of a removelable one so it can be cleaned.
