Default First Brisket on the Brazos!

Well, I don't have class today so I decided to cook the prime packer I got from came last week. This is only the third brisket I've ever done and my first on the Brazos. This time I put the fire grate in the cook chamber as a tuning plate and used no fire grate In the firebox. Wood was oak as usual and for this cook I seasoned the brisket with a combination of Oakridge Black Ops and a coarse salt, pepper and garlic powder mixture. The brisket weighed in at 11.80 lb before trimming so he wasn't a huge one. Keeping my fires consistently clean and burning between 250-300 the whole time, this brisket cooked in a little over 8 hours, which is relatively short. But it tasted great. What do y'all think?

Looks good to me man. I'd say first brisket on it was a successful brisket on it.

Just curious why you didn't use the fire grate in the firebox? If you're only doing that single brisket you really wouldn't need a tuning plate anyhow. Just curious as it looks like it would be tough to keep a clean fire going with nowhere for the ashes to drop.

I saw Aaron Franklin do it in his videos and I just decided to try it and see how it went. I used an ash shovel to move the coals around but honestly I think.it was one of the cleanest fires I've burned so far on the smoker. My logs were long enough to kind of wedge into the firebox above the coal.bed so I didn't have airflow issues. I always run my fire box door and my smokestack wide open though so that always helps.

I think you’ve got it figured out. Clean fire is essential. Even if they are not long enough enough air flow (open door)....they will burn.
