Default wife bought me a 10 lb brisket for Valentine's day

As title states. Been wanting to do a brisket for a long time but been to scared to. Well now got a 10 lber in freezer waiting for the day I can cook it. I have successfully done pork butts and thought they were pretty easy. Is a brisket another beast? I foiled my butts at 4 hours. Wonder if I can get by with foiling on a brisket

I think that's a preference thing. I have a BGE and I thus far I have never foiled a brisket or a pork butt. However a number of people here do. If you're not a veteran of brisket, you could reference a couple of recipes and give one a try.

Can you just rub a brisket down 24 hours before like any other cut of meat? Nice to be a farker lol. Don't even know what that is. My wife's laughing at me lol

BluDawgs Brisket

K.I S.S. some of the best brisket you will ever eat! Total cook time including the rest 8 hrs or less. I promise it will be as moist as mornin dew on the lilly, tender as a mothers love, pure beefy smoky goodness.

1 packer 12-15 lb
Trim off the hard fat on each side of the flat thin the fat cap to 1/4"

Mix your Rub
1 part kosher salt 4 parts Med grind Black peppa by volume( this is a true 50/50 BY weight)
apply a coat of rub you need to be able to see the meat through the rub clearly.

Pre heat the pit to 300 deg
place brisket on the pit Fat Cap Down and point to the firebox unless it is a RF cooker then point to away from FB

Maintain pit between 275-325 if cookin on a stick burner
cook Brisket 4 hrs
remove from pit wrap in a single layer of Butcher paper Return to pit Fat cap up.
after 1 hr probe the thicket part of the Flat only! If it isn't *probe tender it will be within 1 hr.
once it is probe tender remove from the pit keep it wrapped in the paper you cooked it in and allow it to rest on your counter until the Internal temp reaches 150 this will take about two hrs.
Don't ever slice more than you can eat big pieces retain moisture and won't dry up on you like slices will.


*PROBE TENDER>This is the feel that is mimicked by cutting room temperature butter with a hot knife, there should be no drag

The night before a cook, I trim my brisket of the extra fat. Put a rub on it and wrap it in plastic wrap and then tin foil. I and let it rest in the fridge over night. I pull it out the next morning about 45 minutes to an hour before it's time for it to go on, and let it rest on the counter. Then I just place it on the the smoker at 225/250 and off we go.

You'll be fine on that cook. The dawg gave great advice. The other fellers too.

farker-

the paper breathes, giving you a better bark, and the smoke can still penetrate some

foil will make for a softer bark, and it will cook faster

I would follow Blu's advice to the letter

then you will be FULL FLEDGED BIG TIME LOL
