My first brisket!

  1. I've always wanted to try smoking a brisket but have been put off by the price and difficulty. Well, I finally got up the courage to do it. It turned out great, super juicy, super tender, and super yummy!

    Here are the before and after pics........



     Kept the smoker temp between 220 and 250. Wrapped it in parchment paper then in foil after 4 hrs when the meat temp was 167 and put it back in the smoker. At 200 degrees I took it off and put it still wrapped in a cooler. I put a folded blanket on the bottom of the cooler and 3 folded blankets on top of the brisket and left it in the cooler for 2 hours. I don't know what I was worried about, because apparently I'm a brisket goddess!
     
  2. Nice brisket on the first time.

    Any sliced pictures?

    Keep Smokin.
     
  3. No, twoalpha, I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of it sliced. We pretty much gobble down about half of it while it was still on the kitchen counter!

       Congrats on taking the plunge! Brisket is really not that hard, but the price can make it intimidating.Great looking brisket! [​IMG]   The hardest part is remembering to take enough q-view!

  5. Thanks Mike. I'm assuming that the q-view that is mentioned so often in the forums is "photos"? I was going to take a pic right before I wrapped it also, but my 3 year old granddaughter, Jia, was asking me so many questions about what I was doing, I forgot. By the way, Jia absolutely loved the brisket. She kept asking for another piece of "ham".
