    Had a 6 1/2 lb brisket with the flat gone (seems it turned into Pastrami last weekend) and today was the time to cook it.
    It went in at 9am and the 'griller was cooperating today. Cloudy skies and in the 80s, so keeping 240 to 280 was easy. New split about every 45 minutes. Nothing but store bought Hickory.
    At 1:00 IT was 171, 2:00 @ 181, 3:00 @ 188 and it was 195 @ 4:00. Another hour and it was @ 205. Pulled and foiled to rest.
    It didn't get much rest because the Mrs and #2 Granddaughter were chirping like baby birds, so it got cut up.
    A plate went to a neighbor who's wife just had surgery and couldn't cook.
    I did manage to save enough for burnt ends.
    Now if the ice cream would finish, we'll be done.....

    Thanks, all!
    It's only my second one, but I'm now officially hooked (as long as I can get the smaller ones). Easy to cook, tender & tasty @ $2.99lb...perfect!
    Seems like a lot of meat, but there's not much left :)


    (As far as ice cream, I'm sticking to store bought)

    Thanks, Sauced! I had brisket sandwiches 3 days in a row at work and didn't mind a bit LOL!
    The ice cream was a wash. The maker was a gift from years ago that we never tried. I'll stick to store bought thank you 😐
    The neighbors are from NYC and I'm dying to let them try my Pastrami to see what they think, but I can't bring myself to let any of it go. Selfish, I know....

    Hanging in there, Cranky! Haven't seen you around lately. Good to see you!

  12. My thoughts are: If I get a good price I do them regardless of size. Now, we grow briskests on trees around here so I get good selection and price almost all the time. i can always find 9-10 lb briskness, but when prime goes onnI get one even if it is a 17 pounder. It's just too good to pass up. My neighbors love it when I do that too.

    Great looking smoke,BTW.
