Wally World brisket with nice flat
Decided late last week I needed to do some brisket practice over the weekend. Took a cruise out to the local Walmart to see what they had available. Usually they have 4-5 available. Well, to my surprise sitting in the way back of the shelf was this beauty. It was love at first sight. I took my new 13 pound bundle of joy home as fast as I could.
Trimmed of some of her baby fat, she received a decent coating of black pepper and kosher salt. She then went into my preheated drum smoker (no temp gauge on the smoker since I stepped on it a few weeks ago) which had 2 of her 3 vents open. about 5 hours later I took her out since she felt right (using hands only not a probe). However, when I probed her inside the house I realized the flat wasn't done enough. I wrapped her in paper and gave her another hour or so. She then probed perfectly so she came out for a cool down rest on the counter. Started slicing and was pretty happy with the results....very juicy, tender, and not too much smoke. Thanks for checking her out....
