First brisket-advice needed
I know there have been lots of threads about cooking brisket, but I have never been that interested since where I grew up brisket meant corned beef.I will try my first packer tomorrow. It weighs about 9 pounds and I don't want to take the time to cook it at a low temp.My smoking experience has been with smoke and chicken but not beef. I plan to inject it tonight with beef broth and something but haven't decided what. I will cook it on a Brinkman Smoke'n Pro with Brethren suggested mods using Kingsford and a mix of pecan, apple, and pear. I think I will separate the point from the flat so it will all be ready at about the same time.I may try some burnt ends which I have never seen or tasted. Will rub with Bovine Bold. I don't use a thermometer but am used to long cooks without one. I know it won't be ready until it's ready and will test with a probe. Do you brisket cooks have any suggestions or additions such as to injection ingredients or cutting off the point first? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
