    Ive been hankering for some low and slow brisket all this week. A coworker compounded the longing while chatting up the Competition he was smoking this weekend in West TX. It's a big event and wish I had the time to go down and see it.

    Anywho... Thought I'd do my own competition at the hacienda .  One contestant showed. Me!

    So tonight I'm prepping the beef. I started with a 12 pound packer and did a slight bit of trimming. 


    Next I get to use my new toy! Bought a new injector this week. Works Great!


    Added a new rub I'm trying. And Into the MES at 225. I am using my AMNPS for the smoke. 

    Thats all for tonight.  I'll check back on the brisket about 8am tomorrow.

    Looking good so far Brian! I'll be checking in on this mañana...I've got a brisky flat in the fridge right now that gets sacrificed in a couple days.

    Thanks Justin. We will see how it turns out tomorrow. I'm going to bed while the MES beats the thing into submission.

    Evening Case.  Got lazy and put it on the MES.  But bet the Mini would be great on a smaller flat!

    There is some mighty amazing brisket cooked out West! Better bring your A game, and put on some Ropers!

    The mini would've been a great choice! You. could get a good 6-8 hours of rest on an overnight cook if you loaded the mini right.

    It's 9 am the next morning. The brisket now has an Internal Temp of 152.  So we have a way to go before dinner.  

    But take a look at the bark that new rub helped make.! Looks tasty!  Im going to let that bark firm up just a bit more then begin an occasional light mop.

    Thanks Red. It is a home recipe. A variation of the old standby. I'm tweaking sugar content and adding a few mystery powders.  So far it's pretty. But shooting for delicious!  LOL

    Happy Sunday my friend.
