Picked up a new smoker at Walmart yesterday because I wanted to play with charcoal. Seasoned it with a whole 13.9 lb bag last night. Going to do this one with regular Kingsford and hickory chunks and will try some lump or something else next time. Picked up the brisket from Sams, it's an Excel Choice. 8.81 lbs at $2.08/lb=$18.32. I started trimming it and ended up separating it. I seem to have become stuck on separating. I trimmed pretty much all the fat I could from it. The point is tiny. I'm doing some other experimentation too. I made some foil trays just barely bigger than the pieces to try and keep them in the moisture. I figure I'll put them directly on the rack after a few hours. I injected with beef broth and apple juice and let them sit in the mixture overnight. Rubbed with a friend's dad's rub. This is also smaller than most of the ones I've done so far. I'm expecting this one to cook pretty fast.
