Default Big ass brisket

Picked up a coupla briskets last night for some dinners I was selling. One of those bad boys was huge!





So after trimming them up, I injected them with this...



...then I rubbed them...



...and put them in the smoker at about 1am. My fire was running a little high so I plugged all except one hole in the bottom of the smoker. When I woke up about 5:30, the temp was at 145 degrees. Crap!!! I had to deliver these dinners by noon!

So I opened up the door on the smoker and got the temps back up. Once I got them settled, I went and started my beans. They reached 170 at about 8am and I wrapped them with some of the left over injection. For some reason the big one was cooking faster than the smaller one. I pulled them out of the smoker about 10am and started the mac and cheese.

At 11am, I cracked open the foil and this is what I see...



...nice, right? Well the big one was way over done, so half of my customers got "chopped brisket" and the other half got this...



They both tasted awesome and I guess as long as no one compares plates, I won't have any drama, right?

Right?

RIGHT??

I think I need a nap...

Great looking grub there Mista (not unusual for you). I've decided I really like the big 'uns (briskets in this case) when I can find them. I feel like the extra mass helps keep the finished product more moist. It may be that the big briskets I've gotten have just been better than avg, but I'm gonna keep looking for the 15# and overs until something changes my mind.

I've always gone the opposite way with briskets, thinking the smaller ones are likely more tender. Maybe I'm sacrificing moisture for tenderness? Oh well, nice looking grub there, Neil! Good job!

Neil--great looking eats--as always
You da man!

I too am a fan of the large packers.
Just did a 19.5 lb one. Had to trim some flat off to fit in the Dera , but it came out moist and tender.

Think I like 11 to 15 lbs the best. Fit nicely and cook up great.

Thanks.

Great job, very nice brisket, I'm more then positve your customers were very satisfied with the grub you made.

You know Bigmista, I have come to realize that our worst BBQ we could make tastes awesome to everyone else because they are feed CRAP FAST FOOD BBQ all the time. I mean you can eat a McRib and say that tasted good, but is it good quality BBQ, HELL NO.

Its funny, we all take pride in our talent and our joy of making quality BBQ and when it doesnt meet our standards we are the only ones disappointed in most cases,while everyone else lines up for seconds. I think at some point we all become BBQ experts and can never look at the crap we once ate and truely call it BBQ. Just my two cents.

I dig Bossman's post and it is true.
I always try to get a 10lb packer but seem to always get a 12-13.
They get some extra attention but the end result is always worth it.
Leftovers, if any, always get done one way or t'othr.
