I am relatively new to smoking(meat), and to be honest, brisket scares the bejesus out of me. I would never had tried smoking brisket yet if not for this exceptionally good price.
I cooked my first briskey on Sunday, roughly using Bigabyte's 2009 tutorial, in a kettle with KBB and Pecan chunks. Around 8 hrs @~300, no wrapping, quickly exposes the cookers limitations. Was luscious, like butter infused beef. Will try more techniques this weekend on my next brisket victim.
That's awesome. Glad you knocked it out. There is so much marbleization on these briskets that makes it hard to screw it up. I'm doing another one as we speak.
Another reason to go and buy some more since I opened up space in the freezer.
