My first brisket

  1. I have been smoking as an ametuar for a couple years now. But I yet to cook a brisket. So I have been nervous all week. Ended up with a 13lb brisket.(not by choice) wish I had more time to find a smaller one. Anyway put her in the smoker at 7pm sat night. Had all kinds of trouble with the temps between 3 to 7 am. I made it through till 7 am could not break the 145 degree barrier. But I stood patient and she finally climbed up to 190 at which point I pulled her off. She is presently wrapped in foil and resting in the ice chest waiting for dinner time. I will let you all know the outcome
     
  2. So my brisket came out great. The family was all happy and took all but a little bit home. Thanks to all of you on here who helped in making my easter a great one.

  10. Thanks everyone. the pics don't do it any justice. I let it rest after taking it off the grill. When i started cutting it you could see how juicy it was. It needed No sauce. pull after tender. I was completely happy
