Belated NYE Oakridge Black Ops Brisket
 
I totally forgot I took these photos. Came across them while downloadind the camera pics for work last night.

SO, what the heck......late pRon is better than no pRon, right Brethren?



This was a 17+ lb'er in the cryovac. I trimmed the big, hard fat and it was just under 17 lbs after that.

Rubbed with a liberal amount of the Black Ops Rub I got from Oakridge in the giveaway some time ago. Also put on a lighter layer of kosher salt and black pepper. Smoked in on the LBGE until probe tender, then wrapped it in foil and put in a warm (170d) oven to hold until we decided it was time to slice and eat it. Here's how that all looked......

That Black Ops Rub is pretty farkin tasty! Love that "umami" aroma and taste that the ****ake's give it.

After about 10-11 hours fluxuating between 225 & 250 to the best of my recollection (it was a while ago dangit! :becky:), this is what it looked like.....

After a wrap and rest in the warm oven for a few hours, I cut off the point for chili to be made next weekend for our annual chili cook off fundraiser at church. Here was the point:

And the flat on the board, ready to slice.....

Sliced and put in a casserole with a couple of cups of beef broth I made up and touched up with some garlic and onion powder to keep it moist while we nibbled throughout the night.....

We found the thinner end of the flat to be just a bit dry, but that's to be expected since it was so thin and I didn't wrap during the cook but let it go the whole time. This slice was from the part of the flat that was over the point, which I find to be the best stuff on the flat usually.....

Why yes, yes it does.


I ended up with 3 lbs of point meat once the majority of the fat was trimmed off and it was cubed into about 3/4" cubes and vacuum sealed. I'm making 2 pots of my Big Boy Brisket Chili next weekend with it, which ALSO rocks! That brisket had a really big point to it.

That's some good lookin brisket. I saw the Black Ops on their website a couple of days. Thinking of ordering it with some HDD. Do you know how the Black Ops compares to SM Peppered Cow?

Sorry, I don't. I've not had the pleasure of trying the SMPC yet. I've TRIED it out of the shaker, but not on brisket yet.

I know the Black Ops has sh1take mushroom dust in it. It has a distinct, earthy aroma and flavor to it. It's not real spicy, which is why I added pepper. I wouldn't think they'd be real similar, but I honestly don't know. Seems to me the PC had a real peppery flavor, but it's been a while.




Just noticed that the auto-edit on the forum won't let me spell S-H-I-T-A-K-E. :laugh:

I purposely built Black OPS to taste like nothing else on the market today. It is very unique. Perhaps the best blend I've ever come up with. There's enough copy cats out there, I don't ever want to be one of them... :thumb:

Its not just different Mike, its WILDLY different. Addictive almost.
