After smoking for almost 6 months, I had not smoked a brisket. Had been stalling at it for a while and one night in the chat room, Desertlites challenged me to a brisket throwdown ! With the encouragement from the other chatters in the room, I accepted the challenge! I decided to smoke my brisket today and Bob is doing his tomorrow and will post his pics in this thread. It's a friendly, virtual competition, one only suitable for the SMF . Both of us used the smokyokie searing method. It smelled wonderful while on the grill! Here are some details and qvue of my brisket smoke, thus far: Q-vue! separated point from flat, awaiting rub rubbed point and flat, awaiting the sear flaming brisket ready for the smoking session flat prior to foiling Next batch of pics will be of the finished products. Can't wait to see what Bob's brisket looks like!
