First try at brisket.

  1. Had some friends over for the weekend, wanted something to WOW them.. 

    I made my Corned Beef and Cabbage that is always a crowd pleaser, but also made 2 briskets.  One with Jeff's rub and one with a mix of peppers and spices that I could find at midnight..

    Everyone loved all 3!!  I thought it would have more of a smoke ring, any ideas why not???

    that looks like an MES, if so, many members say they can't get a good smoke ring with it.

    The brisky looks very moist and tender,

    Got any pics of the cabbage?

    What type, and how much wood did you use?

  7. I think your asking about wood...  Hickory, some oak and maple, first 4 hours of smoke..

    Maybe no smoke ring, but it looks delicious and your guests gobbled it up! For the most part you need to burn charcoal & or wood to get a large smoke ring.
