Brisket Flat - Not cooking a packer today!
I'm not sure why but I seem to have a lot of luck on my 3rd try on pretty much anything I BBQ. Tonight the same thing applied to a choice brisket flat. Up till now, I've had quite a bit of luck with whole packer briskets but had cooked up practically inedible flats in my first 2 tries of flats alone. Granted those tries came a couple of years ago on my electric smoker and I really didn't have a clue what I was doing (pre-Brethren and pre-Egg days).

Neverless, I decided it was time to redeem myself. That and I wanted brisket and didn't want to cook a packer brisket as I believe that cooking food that can be tied back to a sports team brings that team bad luck. Since I wanted Green Bay to win today, there was no way I was smoking a "Packer" today.

Enough with the chatter :blabla:, here's some pron:

Although I was happy with the results, I'll be happy to return to whole packers as I miss having burnt ends. :icon_sad

Maybe you have been buying those mismarked "choice" packers at S&F that were really "select".

Brisket looks great.

Thanks Chris! I wish I had your brisket tutorial years ago! It has been one of the most helpful threads for me since joining the Brethren.

John that is a great looking flat! Sorry about the lack of burnt ends but, that's just an excuse to have to make another one. :becky:

John, you will have to send some brisket to Judge Jim so I can certify the results of your cook.

Just bought my first flat brisket. I'm going to give it a shot this week. What temp did you do this one at?

Dang John, you are impressing the heck out of me, you are looking like a real vet at smoking.

Johnny_Crunch 02-07-2011 05:38 PM

nice job, looks good from here!

Looks like you do a fine job on a flat. Would like to see a pic of your burnt ends when you do a packer.

Looks like you got the perfect pull right there. Nice work :thumb:
