On the PIT; Fat Cap up/POINT towards heat
I started off with about 14 Charcoal Briquetts
mixed with a handful of Hickory Chunks. Gets me to around 220.

About an hour into I added a large Chuck of Oak on top my coals.

looks like a goos start, have fun!

Dustin D 01-29-2011 12:35 PM

Is my camera adding a red tint to the pictures?

Alright after 5 hours on the pit smoking with Hickory Chips fire temp ranging between 225 to 275 it's now wrapped in foil and in the oven @ 215 for 3 hours.


Internal Meat Temp was 160-165 before I wrapped it.

You sliced that puppy yet?

martyleach 01-29-2011 06:12 PM

Mouth watering....... need more prOn

MilitantSquatter 01-29-2011 06:30 PM

very unique combo of ingredients and process...

how did you come up with this as the final plan for your first brisket ?

Mister Bob 01-29-2011 06:48 PM

I can't wait to hear/see how this one turned out. That's a very interesting and unusual flavor profile for brisket, how was it?

barbefunkoramaque 01-29-2011 06:52 PM

I bet that's gonna be a jackload of taste right there! Looks good... and who cares about rules... It will probably be one of those briskets that as long as the BBQ Police aint there everyone will like. The end result is what counts.

This is a HOT brisket... not unlike video footage of two ladies sitting on a bench and holding hands, not sexually, just like friends you know, then a handsome man comes by and they all start discussing the weather... then he sits between them and they start comparing coupons, since he is like a bachelor, he often does not get all the great deals at the local grocer... so there he is... between two of the nicest ladies there are... conversing deeply with one lady, then the next, then the other, not even taking time to clean out the remnants of the last conversation... from his brain...and both ladies just take all that conversation, one after the other till neither can tell whose idea was whose.. then right as the moment presents itself he whips out his cash engorged wallet and tries to hand them both one of his business cards, but when he does this he mistakenly pulls out his bottle of nasal spray, which is both highly pressurized and warm from being in his pocket and the top pops off and because its the suspended type of nose spray it squirts in a huge and heavy set of dollops right on their laps. The ladies, of course, so that they do not make him feel too embarrassed, just let the tracts of wetness lay there... in a while those wet marks will simply either soak in or just trickle down.

Donnie was just clarifying a point he and I were just discussing about unique briskets and unique situations one might encounter .

we can move along ....all is good. :wink:

chambersuac 01-29-2011 07:04 PM

Bob Wiley 01-29-2011 07:17 PM

Read too many topics in here I guess .... :crazy: ... :D

Actually I had some other things to get done today and was thinking the Coke and Apple Juice would help speed things up a bit.

I also used this thread for pointers;
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=57882

Total Time: 5 Hours on the Pit, 4 hours in the Oven.
Turned out good. I think next time I'll wrap it earlier.

Lessons Learned;
Must have ALL DAY to Cook. I think next time I'll start earlier, and cook it longer. The day got away from me and I pulled it a couple hours earlier than I wanted to. :tsk:

For my first Brisket I'm happy with the results. That's also my first Leg Quarters too. Neither the Chicken or the Brisket lasted very long. Not sure if the family was hungry, or it was just that good :wink:

I'd also like to hear from anyone about when to add Sauce to a Brisket. I want to make a large amount of that Special Mix Sauce in the pictures for my Brisket. Folks were dipping the Brisket in that sauce like their life depended on it.
