Default Costco prime brisket

My bge is loaded up ready to go. I'll fire it up around 11 tonight and put the brisket on around midnight. It might be tough staying up until midnight after being at Disneyland all day today.

After trimming the brisket it weights a little over 10 lbs im going to cook it around 230* I figure a 12 hour + cook. Making mac and cheese, corn bread, and a little salad. Looking forward to a great dinner tomorrow in 70-80* weather.

Photos to follow

You might be right. Guess im just hoping for a longer cook. When ever it gets done ill put the flat in the ice chest and make some burnt ends.

Forget to say when I get up in the morning ill be making a fatty. I'm going to fill it with a couple of hard boiled eggs and cheese.

If it's ready early than expected, it's no biggie.. it will stay warm/hot for hours.

Update on the brisket. After 6 hours of restless sleep I got up at 630 to put the fatty on the bge.

The brisket after 8 hours.

20140215_092311.jpg

The fatty was great and the wife even liked it.

20140215_092723.jpg

After 10 hours the bge is still going strong. I think a piece of hickory most have hit the hot coal because she started smoking heavy again.

20140215_100539.jpg

10 hours in. THe bark doesn't seem to be getting stronger. Hmmmm Its still not probe tender, almost but not yet.

I guess I'll give it a check after I wash my baby.

How much did that go for at Costco?
Just trying to find a consistent source of good beef in Ontario.
Costco has always been good for all sorts of beef...IMO

I usually can grab prime briskets from 2.69 to 2.99 a lb from costco. It was 2.69 for the longest time till this last time I went. For prime its a decent price in my opinion

Yes this one was $2.69 a pound. I've had it for a while. Costco now sells them for 2.99

I just checked it again 11 1/2 hours in. Bark is much better and almost probe tender . Couple spots on the flat still had some resistance. Ill chech again in an hour.
