First whole brisket in a MES30

  1. Well, here we go......my brisket was about 6.8kg untrimmed, almost 15#. Trimmed off most hard fat and silver skin almost 3#. I split it along the fat seam (now it's the flat and point correct?) cuz I got a MES30 and the brisket was super long! Ground some whole spices (corriander, cumin, bay leaf, black pepper) and some additional flavorings (onion powder, garlic powder, paprika). Little bit of brown sugar to increase caramelization. First a liberal salting (coarse kosher) to the patted dry meat then rub application. Going 230F until required as there are multiple cut sizes in there. Wish me luck! Oh yeah, Apple wood and temp outside is about 44F

    Juicy!  Looks mighty tasty to me.  Congratulations on a successful brisket smoke.

    POINT!
     
  9. Thanks @One eyed Jack family liked and I was pretty happy with the results. Probably could have used a little more smoke but seeing as this was my first smoke I used caution. But juicy as all get out!

    If the famly
    Happy family = happy pitmaster.  Better safe than sorry is not a bad approach, especially with something as expensive as a brisket.  Experience is a great teacher.
