Default Prime Briskie on Coshell briqs--Come on in

I hadn't done brisket in a while and had a prime in the freezer and decided to get to it.


A 10lber. I prefer my brisket in the 10-12 lb range.



After trimming it weighed 7.5lbs. Seasoned with S&P



Hmmmmm.... What do I use??? I wasn't sure if I should use the Coshell since it was my first time and didn't know what to expect but I said "Fark it!"



About 5.5lbs in the chimney.



It takes a bit longer than usual for these guys to get started but no complaints. More beer to be had



Hung the briskie



After 3 hours the brisket was at 160 IT. Wrapped in butcher paper and it went back in the PBC to finish. It went another 2 hrs and it probed like butta at 190ish. So I took it out and let it rest for about an hour or so.





In the meantime made some creamy mashed taters with roasted garic



And some gravy



Finished product



Separated the point from the flat



Sliced the flat and about half of the point since some family likes the point better. The half point was cubed, sauced and back in the grill for burnt ends.



Ohh baby!



Time to eat



One of my great friends came back from a weekend at Mammoth Lakes and sent this for me to enjoy. Perfect timing.





After dining and drinks the Burnt ends were ready. Here is a pic of what was left of it. They went fast



Atlantic City treat to make it right after a great dinner



Overall very satisfied with the briqs. They tend to take a bit to start but burn hotter and longer. Using 5.5lbs total, the brisket took 5 hours from start to finish. After that I put the burnt ends on and it ran another 3 hrs. Total burn time of 8 hrs. I ended up with 1lb of ash after it burned the full 8 hrs just in case anyone needs this info.




Thanks for looking!!

Everything looks delicious. Glad you were able to try the coshell briquettes. I wanted so bad to pickup a few bags but instead caught the bug that was going around.

Now need to trek to the nearest lowes.

Thanks!! Suck you caught the bug. I did for a day but was able to fight it off.

Def try them. They're good stuff. I'm going back for more and stocking up on these briqs. Don't get fooled by that Go Green verbiage, they're the real deal.

Hahaa!! You better believe the tires are going to get burned. Different kind of burn I like smoking in any way I can get it.

ssv3,

Had the bug for a little over a week. It didn't help that I had to go to a friends bachelor party in Vegas and only slept 6 hours in 2 days.

Did the ecoshell give a clean smoke flavor like stubbs. I used two bags of stubbs and now I'm addicted. Need to sell off my remaining stock of kbb or most likely just use it in the kettle for grilling.

Vegas sure doesn't help. I pick up a bug or two coming back from Vegas but that's another story.

Anyway,

These coco briqs burn very clean with no thick white smoke that you get with Stubbs in the beginning. The smoke doesn't stick on you like lump or Stubbs. It gives you a mild pleasant "fruit wood type" of smoke flavor. I think I would add some chunks to it in the future depending the smoke flavor I'm aiming for and type of meat. Stubbs is good stuff but I like these just as much as Stubbs if not better. Burns very, very clean sort of like good lump charcoal. Burn hotter and seems like it's got more strength to it even say after 6 hours.

I'm still experimenting with it and will throw some chicken in the PBC tonight and see how much smoke flavor I get since poultry absorbs more smoke.

I never liked or used KBB except a comp bag once so I wouldn't even know how it compares. I'll keep you posted.
