Smiking Brisket for the first time

  1. Smoking a Brisket today...

    -6 pound Whole Brisket ( that's the biggest they had)  at 4.50 a pound...I was ok with that!

    -Brown sugar / garlic powder / paprika & cayenne for the rub (overnight in fridge)

    -Smoking in UDS @ 225 Fat side down

    -Pan on grate below Brisket (added beef broth and some beer to pan)

    -Basted the brisket a few times with the drippings from the pan

    -Also used a mop water (1 stick butter / 1 cup water & 2 tablespoons of rub) mopped it a couple times or so

    should be done in a couple hours when it gets to about 190 or so.  Then I will take out wrap in foil for about an hour or to so it can tenderize and retain those juices!

    Plan to serve up some sandwiches with a horseradish sauce with some jack cheese.  If there are some leftovers will make some lambrusco soup :)


    gotta have some!
