Overnight 18# brisket
Smoking an 18.3 pound (pre-trim) prime brisket I picked up from Sams for a pot luck tomorrow. Here it is with a 7" santoku for size.

For ease and speed of cooking I split the flat and the point and seasoned with Bovine Bold.

The weather tonight is quite nice. A couple things you may notice, the welding blanket helps to keep the heat in/block wind. Also, I am using an Auber ATC and ET-732, but to keep them dry I put them in a plastic container that had a hole and grommet in the lid the wife had sitting around.

I'll be sure to post the results as long as I remember pictures in the morning.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that within 36 hours prior to this, it was over 70*F here.

We had a little white stuff here yesterday morn. My redhead looked just like that when I woke up.

Quick update @ ~3:00 a.m., power has gone off twice for several minutes in the last hour and the brisket is holding @ 153*.

Awesome endeavor!

Haven't seen snow here in a few years. It's predicted to be rainy 77 degrees and then clear up for sunny high 40-50 degrees tomorrow through the weekend.

I'm really wanting to cook a brisket on Monday. It'll be my first attempt.

I'll most likely be buying it from Sam's. Our Sam's has an excellent meat dept.

My rub order came in yesterday. I have both Bovine & Black Ops.

I'll be watching your thread throughout the day from work. Good luck!

4:30 AM, just foiled the brisket (haven't mastered foil less brisket, yet).

As for the weather, it has finally stopped snowing. This was @ 3 at the previous update.

Well, it is for a work potluck today as two coworkers are moving on to other things. It will hopefully feed the up to 20 coworkers in the office.

I cooked a 17 pounder in early November that disappeared, though there were about 30 people. There was also a turkey breast and some ham, but the majority of both of those were left over. :biggrin1:
