    My bother came into town so what shall I smoke on the MES???

    Brisket of course :yahoo:


    Picked up a small USDA Prime 12lb packer from Costco

    Same story as before... Will not fit on my MES 30 so I cut it in half. I should have just trimmed the point from the flat, but I ended up cutting around the middle.

    Just put the point portion on. The flat portion will go on later ~ 11:00

    Seasoned overnight with the usual
    SS
    pepper
    granulated garlic
    granulated onion
    tad bit of Cajun seasoning
    tab bit of brown sugar

    I have been on a cherry kick of late.

    I plan on running the smoker at 245F.

    I used that temp for a combined beer-can-chicken and salmon and the MES really put out the smoke!

    This time I have some orange wood that I plan on using. I love "sperimenting" on the relatives :biggrin:

    Slight change in plan, put the flat portion on at 8:30 pm

    As always these will be smoked unwrapped. Again there in no need to foil wrap when using an MES

    Just loaded up the wood tray and calling it a night
     
  3. They're looking good. I'm interested to hear how well the orange wood works with them, hadn't heard of that before but i like the idea of it.

    Sorry got busy yesteday

    Here is the point after resting


    I cubed it up and made burnt ends using dilluted Sweet Baby Rays sauce, our favorite) Put on the charcoal webber for finishing. Made GREAT sammies!


    Flat part after resting



    The orage wood workded out well. A nice mild smoke favor. During the smoke it reminded me of pipe tobacco. I thought it really showcased the brisket. Definately going to use it on brisket again.
