Smoked Feast for college football event - Now w/ QView!

  1. Doing brisket this weekend. I had to choose between select packet from smart & final vs choice untrimmed cryo flats from Costco. I chose the flats. I bought two that were nice and bendy, about 6.5 lbs each.

    I've never done just a flat. Current plan is to only *lightly* trim, inject, rub, and smoke fat side down. Then to foil at 160 to ensure I retain moisture.

    I have traditionally used a Packer, and not just the flat, so I am intrigued about this.

    I understand about wanting to retain moisture, but I fear that at 160 degrees, it would not be tender, and might be tough.  I have had brisket that stalled around that temp and it was no where near done or as tender as needed.

    I look forward to hearing more ideas though, since I love the possibility.

    In any event, Good Luck with it!!!

  3. Sorry, I meant to say that I'd foil it and keep it on the smoker (i.e. the "Texas crutch") until it passes the toothpick test. I won't stop cooking at 160.

    Your on the write path! you can foil or not....depends on how rushed you are. Take it up to 195-205 until tender and let rest for atleast an house and slice it up! Oh yea and post pics!
  5. Adding Qview... Made some ABT's, some fatties with mushroom/onion/spinach/gruyere, chili, and cole slaw as well ;-)
