Monster Brisket
1 Attachment(s)
From time-to-time there are posts here regarding the biggest briskets you've ever seen/cooked. Here's a pic we just received from Gil Taft of a brisket he used at his class this weekend (

At 26 lbs., it's a monster! Can for scale :)

Wow. Nothing over 20 here

Geez! I cooked a 22lb'er and though that was massive.

That gotta take a while to cook. @ 1 1/2 hrs a lb = 39 hrs!!!

That's gonna require a BIG crock pot!

Oh wait, that's not a rack of ribs. Nevermind:oops:

It would be interesting to see how long that large of a brisket takes to cook, but there seems to be a point where the ratio of brisket size to cook time doesn't continue at the same per/lb rate. If that makes sense.

When I cooked that 22lber I also cooked an 18lber and they 22 actually finished first.

That must of been one insanely fat cow.

I would gladly conduct an experiment to see how long it would take to cook one. Where can I send my shipping info? :becky:

You sure that was from a beef cow and not a buffalo? :shock:

Did it have a thick flat?

Johnny_Crunch 01-15-2014 02:27 PM

I am scared to ask what that cost.

I'd like to see her undressed.

Wow, I'm thrilled when I can find one over 8 lbs at Sams.

I've done a 15 pounder that trimmed down to 14 and a 17.5 that went to 16.5. That thing is huge...
