Smaller Brisket

Discussion in 'Beef' started by rubadubdub, May 27, 2013.

  1. Smoking a smaller 5.5 lb brisket and just hit 153 internal temp what are your thoughts on whether or not to place this beauty in a pan with beef broth or just let it go and wrap in foil once it reaches 180ish?

    Still may take you several hours to get done, but good luck.

    I would wrap it when it hits about 150 - 155.  Wrapping will cause a little loss of flavor, so sprinkle a little rub on it when you wrap it.  You can put in a little broth (maybe 1/4 cup) if you are concerned about it drying out, but it is not necessary.  If you are cooking in the 250 - 275 range, it will be done around 199 - 202 internal.   At the end, you can use the temp probe as a tenderness probe.  Pull it when it FEELS tender.  Then open the foil and let it rest for 20 minutes or so.
