Hot n' Fast Brisket On The UDS: Juicy Meaty Beefy Goodness

    After my big meat score at Restaurant Depot, I decided my first casualty would be the USDA Choice Brisket. This one weighed in at just under 8lbs. You can see it here on the lower left:

    After I pulled it out of the cryovac, I trimmed the fat cap just a bit, and rubbed it down with Moose's Rib Rub #3:

    Meanwhile, I got my charcoal basket ready and filled it with briquets and a few pieces of oak and hickory:

    I added about 15 lit briquets to the middle of the charcoal pile:

    Put the charcoal basket in the drum and covered it, with all vents open so I could get it to temp:

    Once the temp gauge hit 275, I closed the vents down about 1/4, and dialed it in at 325 degrees. Time to put the brisket on!

    The drum held a steady 325 for the entire cook. I did flip it a few times, and also had some help from a friend who kept a watchful eye on the drum:

    After 5.5 hours, it was done! I inserted a probe thermometer and it went it like butter in both the point and flat:

    The missus wrapped it in foil, and we let it rest for a few hours. A bit later, our guests arrived, so it was time to get started on brisket deconstruction.

    The meat was so tender I literally pulled the point from the flat without having to use a knife:

    I saved the point, which I will cut into pieces in a few days and make burnt ends, so tonight we will enjoy the flat, which I slice against the grain:

    Here is one plate we served, with corn that was picked about an hour before dinner, along with freshly picked salad greens and tomatoes from the garden:

    This was the first brisket I cooked in my UDS, and it was absolutely amazing. So tender, and very juicy. Session data
