How's my brisket look?

  1. I've done brisket before with little success. This time it came out really really nice, I think. What do you think? How does the smoke ring look? I'm thinking about entering some competitions. Would like some feedback.

    That looks great! You did a good job smoking that long and NOT turning it into an aircraft chock! I almost stuck a fork in my computer!

    DID you say 24hrs [​IMG]
    Thats a long smoke
    how heavy was the brisket and what temp
     
  8. The brisket was about 13-14 lbs. I tried to keep the temp at about 225. I lost some time in the night because the temp went down to about 169 because my alarm didn't wake me up to tend the coals. I put it in about 6:45 pm. I opened it at about 6am and mopped it. It was at about 190 at about 5pm when it started to down poor so I had to wrap it in foil and finished it in the oven. We ate at about 7pm.

    OH so you had technical difficulties. I was wondering because I can do two 15# briskets in 12hrs at 220. but i make sure my temp is consistant. I have my mavrick thermometer that i put on my nightstand and set my chamber alarm when my temp gets to 200 if i want to take a nap. Brisket looks good though
