    Well I just told Baby Sis to bring some Popeye's Chicken for lunch...... It might be ready for supper but I ain't gonna rush it. It's been in a stall seems like forever at 162 IT.

    Is that not a beautiful brisket? Never done it all like this before, gonna see how it all works out but I am thinking it going to be awesome sauce!

    /Ding /Ding /Ding Update!

    Longest stall I ever saw on a brisket, or maybe it was just a watched pot? Not only going by IT, but I probe this piece of meat prior to pulling, didn't want no silly inexcusable mistakes this time. Its strictly BTB (By the book).

    You all know how a redneck is a creature of opportunity, using what's available.

    So here is the Styrofoam box the brisket came in.


     The perfect size? The perfect place to rest a cooked brisket for an hour or two. Took almost 2 hours for the IT to drop 2 degrees.

    But with more insulation like say the bubble wrap that came in the cooler with the brisket, it really holds heat. bubble wrap underneath and a nice towel on top.


    Then there was the wrapping paper it was filler in the ice cooler as well.


    Its like the total Brisket package.

    OK back to the brisket.......... I separate the point from the flat and remove the really excessive fat. I did this so you know I know how that grain runs to slice it.


    Just starting.....


    I wish you could see this meat. With a chefs knife I can cut slices 1/8th of a inch thick easily continuously. Wow!

    It hard to make a pretty picture of a plate of Brisket but I did what I could.


    Fresh store bought loaf bread, pinto beans w/ ham hocks, pickled beets, and fresh onions. There is also some of my homemade  West Texas BBQ sauce......  Man and its not even my B-Day!

    Well that's it my friends. Its really delicious, juicy and tender. Color me impressed with the prime brisket and a good friend. I hope you all enjoyed watching and laughing at me. Its been a load of fun!

    You need to try one of these, I don't know if its prime or its the company that sell it but this really should be given a unique name its so much better.....

    It did stall forever! But it might have just been because of my anticipations of what was to come..... and it lived up to it.
    I am soooooo full and I still have not put it away in the reefer yet....... I am either going to be sick or explode! LOL Oh and that will be due to quantity and not quality.

    LOL.... You remember the Alka Seltzer commercial about the biggest dumpling, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing"! That's exactly how much I have eaten.....LOL
    I hope it was worth the wait, I know it was hard to do here too, but its a really special brisket.

    Come on over, but bring your sweater. It getting sorta chilly here.

    LOL.... I had made a banana pudding yesterday and made some coconut macaroons last night. The fancy ones with the candied cherry halves pressed into the center. They are both sitting on the counter, no room for the foo foo stuff...LOL
