Brisket, Spares, & Jeff's Rub

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by 5oclocksomewher, Jul 5, 2014.

  1. Got up at 6am and decided I was going to spend the day around the smoker. Went to the store picked up a 7.5 lb brisket flat and 2 racks of St. Louis ribs. Started my charcoal chimney at 8am, put the brisket on at 9am, and the ribs at 10am. Ribs are for today, brisket tomorrow.
    I'm using Jeff's Texas rub on the brisket, and his original rub on the ribs. (Will be using his sauce for the ribs later.)

  2. Brisket on for 2 hrs, ribs 1 hr. Just spritzed everything down with some beer (forgot to buy apple juice).
    Cooking at 250. Usually I cook a little hotter but I'm not liking at all the way this Wegmans Lump is burning.

  3. 3 hrs on the brisket, 2 on the ribs.

  4. Looks good, 4 hours in to my first pork butt - probably going to foul it in about an hour with Apple juice - looks like we ave the same smoker.
  5. Looks Great!!!
  6. 4 hours on the brisket. IT @ 175. Ribs (3hrs) coming along nicely.

    Looks good so far.

    I like Royal Oak Lump charcoal. I get mine at Wally World.
  8. Brisket smoking 5 hrs, Spares 4 hours. Ribs were sauced half hour ago, and done now. Brisket IT 195. Taking off ribs now, brisket half hour more. Like to get it to 200. Jeff's rub and bbq sauce lookin good on the Q.
