Default to cold to work, think I'll try bludawg's brisket recipe

Temps are negative 11. I don't want to think about what the wind chill is. Gonna try bludawg brisket recipe. Picking up a 6 pound angus packer now (my Butcher always keeps a few on hand, I like to think they're just for me.). Gonna rub with a tri level rub, salt and black pepper will be the stars. Cooking at 300 in the wsm (no water in pan today) for about 4 hours. I use small briskets so it maybe a little less. Then wrap in butchers paper, back on smoker for an hour. Check for tenderness, if not done put back on for an hour. Once tender rest still wrapped until IT is 150. Eat and enjoy.



Sound about right?

Internal temp of 150 is not going to result with a tender brisket. I strongly recommend bringing it up to at least 190 or 195. In reality, you need to ignore temps and go by feel. When you insert a probe into the thickest part of the flat, it should go in like butter.

Also, 6lb packer seems tiny, not sure you can even get a packer at 6lbs.

150 is after the rest.

The recipe calls for cooking til probe tender. Leave wrapped out of cooker until it is cooled. My Butcher always keeps 5_7 pound Packers on hand. I don't know if he trims them down or if they come from mini cows. I'll post a pick soon

That is way small for a packer. But we'll wait on the pic to decide

everything else sounds like a good plan

I would love a 6-7# packer. The smallest I ever find is typically 11-12#s. Really, all I need is the point off of the packer. But I've never found just the point for sale.

I have wondered about that as well, does anyone know what happens to the points? Costco in my area sells 6-8 lb Flats but none of them have points, what do they do with all the points?

Guess I live in the twilight zone, Harris Teeter here sells nothing but the point for about $2-2.50/lbs no whole packers and the flats are like $3.50/lbs. I have about 5 points in the freezer i always forget about since i normally do packers from the butchers.

They don't always have them, but some of the Kroger locations near me sell points.

Must be a VA thing, I mostly see points in regular grocery stores around here, then flats in Costco.

Default 6 pound packers

Asked the Butcher about the small size of the briskets. He said "that's a brisket". I said "thought they were bigger". He replied "they are trimmed". I decided not to push him and just enjoy briskets that fit easily in my 18 wsm.

Here it is, just over 5 pound. They are pre trimmed. Normal price is 3.99 lbs but the counter girl wrote it up wrong

Is there an indicator for wrap time or do you just wrap after four hours. As stated I cook mini briskets.
