Costco 14 lb Prime Brisket
« on: August 05, 2017, 02:29:51 PM »
I was in Costco a few weeks ago and I was luck enough to snag a 14.4 lb prime brisket for $45.00.

I applied yellow mustard and pickle juice and then hit it with my rub. Put it in the frig for 10 hours and pulled it around 9:00 pm to put in the smoker. It used 6 oz. of pecan and set the temp to 225 degrees.

I woke up early in the morning (4:00 am) and decided to see how things were going. At first I thought no way, but the temp said 200 degrees on the brisket. I doubled checked with my thermoworks and yet it was 200!

I was expecting that the brisket would not be done until 11:00 or noon, but it was done. I pulled from the smoker and added some au jus covered with foil and placed back in the smoker at 160 degrees. I decided to pull it at 8:00 am and put it in the frig until dinner. I reheated the brisket at 250 degrees until it hit 160. Pulled let it rest and then sliced up for dinner. It was a bit over cooked (thin slices fell apart to easy), but the taste was amazing.

Dinner was brisket, Texas toast and homemade coleslaw!

I cut up the rest and will make BBQ pizza and BBQ sandwiches!

Nice to see you're back.  Hope all is well.

Hey Eric,
Things are good, I started a new job last year and we made a move so things have been crazy, but in a good way. I have been doing a little smoking here and there.
Anyways, with a year under my belt things are flowing pretty well, so I thought I would start dropping in again!

Hey Dave and Jimmy,
Good to be back!

My guess on the quick cook time was that my wood must have caught on fire. When I checked the firebox, nothing but ashes. But overall a great smoke, just glad I did not sleep in, or it would have been jerky!

Hey Bob,

Hope you are doing well. Tonight we had some Brunswick stew with left over Brisket and Costco chicken.

I will post tomorrow when I get a chance.

That looks  delicious,  actually  almost all my briskets get done way earlier than planned.
