Brisket Smoking to Commence....(pics too!)

Discussion in 'Beef' started by gspot, Aug 12, 2007.

  1. I am preparing an evening of brisket smoking....the wife and kids are out of town....beer and chips have been purchased. I've attached pics (sorry for the poor quality....my wife has the camera) of the brisket (5.5 lbs). I've applied Jeff's rub and plan on starting the smoking about 10pm tonight. By morning I should have some more pics for you.

    I plan to mop with apple cider. I'm using a mix of oak and apple wood to smoke the meat.

    Keep checking back. Wish me luck!! I've learned a lot since I killed my first brisket!

  12. I did it!!! I killed the first brisket...this time I made perfection!

    I attached the final pic before I wrapped it. Sorry for the poor picture quality...all I had was my cellphone to take pics with. Finally made it to 200 degree's...it only took 13.5 hours......

    I tasted it....wonderful!!! Now I am really hooked.

    What to do next weekend????

    Gspot,
    An absolutely great looking brisket! I'm not sure what to suggest as a follow up. (It's always hard to follow roaring success.) But imho, great ribs are always good.

    Great looking brisket. Glad it all worked out for you. Thanks for sharing.
     
  16. I just unwrapped the brisket...pulled it...and had my first plate...EXCELLENT!!! I put some of Jeff's sauce on it (modified with a little habanero sauce....mmmmmmm)!

    Well worth the wait!!!!!!!!!!!!
