    Back in my College days I'd've been ready at 2am for some brisket!!! Now a days, I'm lucky if I make it to 9pm!!!!!

    182 after 9.5 hrs? Does that seem right?

    What temp ya running the smoker? How thick is it? What's the ambient temp outside? Is it windy?

    Sorry but all of that effects the cook , and every piece of meat is different! That's why I've had brisket done at temps from 185-195. Some have more fat some are more lean. I've had some take 10 hours others take 20. With brisket safe doneness temp is way low, think steak. Tenderness temp is a whole different story.

    It's hot out today - not real windy and it rained for a bit.  It's a good size packer.  It's 185 now - I think I am going to seperate the point at 195 and then wrap the flat.  I am going to attempt burnt ends with the point.

    Separated the point and put back on. Flat is in cooler.

    I'm glad I wasn't the first to say it.  $50? I haven't bought a packer in a month or so. I heard that meat was going up.  Hot dogs may be on the menu for the 4th!  

    But Joop, That packer sure looks good!

    $50 bucks sounds like a steal. Haven't seen a full packer in my neck of the woods for under $60 in at least 3 years! I can buy 8 tri tips for that!!!

    Totally awesome looking meat. I am proud to know anyone with enough self restraint to be able to bag and freeze leftovers. Da Man!
  18. Wow! Looks great. I need to get a brisket, still haven;t gotten around to one this year yet.

    Yes, it is difficult but I had a bunch of burnt ends.  Still ate those for dinner with more to eat tomorrow.  They are so good just sitting in the crockpot on warm.  The fat is even DELICIOUS!
