    Nothing fancy here. Just your everyday cupboard stuff for rub and injected with beef broth. The usual and what was a 12 pound brisket before i sliced about 2 pounds of fat off of it. Bummer right.





    It's about 13 degrees out but wth.

    13, ugh...I feel ya.
    Did some pastrami recently when it was that cold out, huddles up next to my firebox shivering.

    Good luck with the brisket [​IMG]

    Unforuntely I had an incident with my meat probe as it read 170 when the brisket started spitting grease everywhere. I pulled out ol reliable and the damn thing read 208. So I bow my head and shame and post no pics of the finished product here. Time for a new probe. What a waste. We still ate it though lol.

    Sorry to hear about the thermometer, but I bet you could still make a heck of a pot of chili with leftover brisket to combat the outside temps !!!

    Not a problem, if it went up to 208 I would have wrapped in foil and a towel, lest rest for an hour then shred it for some pulled brisket, would be great!

    As long as it was edible and not a complete waste...

    The Good thing about BBQ is we eat our mistakes...

    So I guess you could say there are no mistakes...[​IMG]

    Yea 208 isn't a bad thing at all i usaully takei mine to 200-205 and your only 3* off so theres no big deal. I would just pull it or you can slice it too and it will be great.

    Exactly, I do this at times just because I like shredded brisket.

    If it were to happen again add some hot tap water to the top and wrap tightly in foil and let it sit for about 45 minutes to one hour . You will think everything was done perfectly .
