Default 16 Pound Brisket and a New Toy - PR0N

The weather was so great yesterday I had to fire up the keg. I haven't cooked a brisket for a while so that's what I cooked. The only whole packer brisket I could find was a 16 pound select but it still turned out pretty good. I trimmed it, rubbed it down with some seasonings (pepper, salt, cumin, garlic, b. sugar) and injected it with some beef broth, garlic and black pepper.

I also got the chance to try out my new toy the Buttula. I have trouble getting large cuts of meat out of the keg because there isn't a lot of room in it and getting tongs in there usually results in ripping up the meat. The Buttula is a heavy duty spatula that is 8 inches long x 6 inches wide, and is made of 12 gauge (1/8" thick) stainless steel with a red oak handle. It worked really well and I was able to easily move the brisket around without it falling apart or messing up the bark.

I served the brisket with a variety of seasonings and toppings on the side including fresh avocado, Italian seasoning, horse radish sauce, fresh onion, BBQ sauce, cheez whiz, and mayo. That way, my guests could eat the brisket Philly cheese steak style, BBQ style, Baltimore Pit Beef style, Italian beef style, or Texas style with some avocado (that's what I did). It turned out pretty good and it was great getting outside in the sunshine and warmth playing with fire and cooking a big chunk of meat.

Sorry about the poor quality of the pics.







Here is the point separated from the flat after cooking. I removed the excess fat and added a good coat of rub and put it back in the smoker for burnt ends.



It came out tender, juicy, and full of great flavor.
