Briskit
« on: August 11, 2017, 07:38:23 AM »
I either don't know how to search or it's not on this forum, which I doubt.  I have a brisket my wife purchased and I've never even looked at a brisket before. I think I want to smoke it with my #2 but need some guidance. Where should I start??????????
Thanks

Tap the "Smokin-It User Forum!" tab located upper left of the page, below the words Home, Help, Search etc.  This will take you to the main forum page.  Scroll down and choose "Beef."  When Beef page is open, on top right of page you will see a search box.  Type in Brisket and hit search.  That should take you to all forum post about brisket.  Hope that helps...

Something else to be aware of is the "stall". Perfectly normal but frustrating. So do a search for that as well.

I know most people will not be interested in my story buy I was so surprised I've got to tell it.

Over my life I have probably tasted 5 brisket, all prepared by different people in different ways. I never tasted 1 that I thought was worth the time and energy it took to cook. Just an opinion set in stone.

Last week I found a choice brisket at "Chefs Store" that was on its last day of shelf life and was marked down from its original price to $2.05 a pound, 9.8 pounds. I bought it felling certain I would be better off to take my $20.00 and throw it out the car window and save my time for something worthwhile.

I then got on this forum and looked for cooking advise and prep instructions. Got a good idea of what I needed to do so out to the cooler I went. I put a rub of my own on the brisket and let it set for 6 hours.

I used about 5 oz of apple wood chips and set the smoker on 225. When I got to 185, 16 hours later, I pulled it off and wrapped it in aluminum foil for about 2 hours. When it finally came time to eat my family acted like they were starved. This was by far the best thing I've ever smoked and I'll definitely be on the lookout for brisket from now on. Thanks to all you guys for sharing you suggestion with me. It was wonderful

Burchillb... I love Brisket.  I can smoke a whole packer and have a great meal right away and then vac-pac and freeze chunks so I can have another 7+ meals in the future.  If you don't have a good vacuum sealer then I'd encourage you to put that on your short list.

Congrats on your success!

Last day of shelf life means it is just starting to get tender. When I was a kid we always shopped in the "Green Meat" section (Discounted & Reduced) and I still do.
