Proud daddy of my first Brisket.

Discussion in 'Beef' started by huntem, Dec 7, 2014.

  1.    With the help of this forum, I did my first Brisket. the pics show start to finish. I rubbed it and let it rest for a couple of hours. put it in at 220*. 3  1/2hrs it hit 160* so I foiled and put back in. It than stalled at 170* for a few hours than when it hit 180* I did the probe test and it was done. So a total of 12hr of smoke. Then I wrapped it with a towel and put it in a cooler for 3hrs until the My Seahawks kicked the Eagles azz!!! It turned out Great. It melts in your mouth and has good meat flavor. The rub didn't take like I thought it would. The next one I am goanna start out slow and low . Around 200* I guess to give it more smoke time before I foil it. What do you guys and gals think? Any pointers are welcome.

    Not trying to step on Gary's toes, but he's referring to this.... A lot of smokers use the AMNPS for additional smoke ! Especially folks using electric smokers! Hope this helps....

    It is delicious! It melts in your mouth. A lot of Smoke flavor. I used hickory/cherry chips. It's amazing how 8lbs of meat disappears so fast.🍻 It was a touch dry. I put it in a small cooler wrapped in a towel. It sat on Edge. There was a 1/4" of juice in the Bottom. Maybe that's why it was a bit dry? Maybe this should lay flat in a cooler? Any bod else experiencing this?
