    After cruising around these forums yesterday morning I decided to go pick up my first brisket - a small 5 pounder.

    Gave it a rub down with SPOG, cumin, chili powder and sugar and tossed it into the BC at 10am. Got 5 pans of cherry smoke on it and got the IT up to 150 in the BC after 4 hours and transferred it to the oven for 4 more hours, 225 first 2 hours, 235 3rd hour, 250ish 4th hour (until the poke test passed). Final IT was 201 degrees.

    Toothpick went in like butter is most spots, so I felt that was sufficient. (a few spots around the edge had a litttle resistance, but I chose to yank it anyways. This is a learning experience after all [​IMG])

    She's laying to rest now, double wrapped in foil. I'm dying to tear into it.

    Got some beans in the Big Chief as well. Using this recipe (+ 2 fingers of JD) from bradley:

    Looks good, nothing wrong with starting small on the first brisket, now that you have your first one under your belt get you a packer for the next one, nothing like a little chopped point to go with the sliced flat, beans look good too

    Turned out much better than the miserable failure that I expected. Very moist and tender! Will be doing this again very soon with a packer for sure....I'm dying to try out burnt ends.

    The rest of my night will conist of the meat sweats and that thing beans does to ya.

    Thinly sliced the rest up for lunches for the week. Had a few snackers and decided to whip up some brisket paninis and leftover beans for dinner.

  13. Nice leftovers
