BBQ Brisket

Post by Stan In Maryland » Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:15 pm

I am three hours into what will probably be between 18 and 20 hours of cooking a brisket on the smoker. I just thought I would share that news.

What a co-inky-dink. I just had Arby's Bacon, Brisket, Beef & Cheddar for lunch. It's actually damn good although I don't think they smoke it for 20 hours. https://arbys.com/our-menu/limited-time ... -n-cheddar
It's time I started living and time to let someone else do the giving......

Brisket is beyond me. I can do ribs, but my patience ends there.

But it is a lot less time consuming and work to go to Arby's.

NS...most of the time it just sits there.

Brisket involves too much chewing for my taste.

The cafe I worked at had the best brisket. This is one of their best selling brunch dishes:

Brisket & Eggs* - 14 Slow braised beef, over easy eggs, biscuit, chipotle-lime hollandaise, homefries.

Then you haven't had good brisket. The reason I find brisket a bit of a challenge is to get it tender but not dry. Pork shoulder is easy, ribs are pretty easy, brisket it my weak meat. Partly we have pretty much only been able to get flats, which works against you. Now I can get prime packer (whole brisket) so I am hoping my brisket will improve. We'll know tomorrow.

I had David Chang-restaurant-made brisket last year and it was crispy fatty and salty.
Otherwise brisket I’ve had was dry and chewy.

Texas does the best brisket. Dry or chewy there gets you beaten

To those who had only had dry or chewy brisket, yeah, you have never had good bbq brisket. We will see if folks at the party today get good bbq brisket or not.

Usher, I actually thought about you when I made this post. Yes, I have a wireless that has a temp for the smoker and the meat. Looking to finish at about 190 internal.

For my staff meal at the cafe I would occasionally get a slab of brisket. It was so tender I could eat it with a spoon.

Brisket came out great. Best I have ever done Cooked to 187 internal, sliced about a 1/4 thick. Great on the pull test (pull the ends of the slice and it should pull apart with just a little resistance. Very moist. Did burnt ends out of the point. Cut into chunks, tossed with some chili powder and black pepper and finished on the grill until the outside of the meat was slightly caramelized. Rave reviews all around.

Love brisket, and especially love burnt ends. Just found a place around here that does it very well indeed. Most places do not.

At my age I am quite comfortable admitting what I don't do well. Although now I can say I made one good brisket,one day I will have to see if I can repeat it.
