Default This weekend's projected cook - 1st brisket

I was at my favorite mom and pop last night, and asked if they had any full briskets. The butcher wasn't in but the assistant made a note and promised to have one for me today. Well, I was not disappointed. They asked me how I'd like it prepared and I said I'll take it as is, and was then told, oh, it'll be 20 cents off a pound then. So, I've got almost 12 pounds of choice beef to hopefully not fark up this weekend.
I plan on cooking at 275 after rubbing with Bovine Bold until whenever it's done. I've got my choice of apple, mesquite, hickory or JD oak, and also a little cherry and alder fine chips to mix in but I'm not sure which one to go for yet. Anyway, here's the briskie in the raw. Future updates to come.

Good looking hunk of meat. Looking forward to seeing the cook.

I vote for oak. Great with beef.

Good luck! May the force be with you!!

Do you have a Sam's club near you? If so, you can get Choice full briskets there usually for around $1.80/lb.

Thanks! Yep, there's two or three but I'm not a member. Can't decide between them or Costco.

Good luck. Are you going to inject or do anything else other than the Bovine Bold rub? Hope it turns out great!

Not on this one. I want to see what happens with just a rub. No marinating or fat trimming either, and probably no foiling but I'll decide that during the cook depending on how the sugar in the rub does.

I was leaning towards the oak. I loved how it worked with the standing rib, but I really like mesquite flavor too. I'll probably use the last of the JD though.

Looks good Guerry, I would go oak with a touch of mesquite, it can be a good combo.

Guerry, good choice to keep the cook simple. We are a huge fan of the Bovine Bold. No injection is a good idea so you have a good base line to go from. You can trim some of the real thick fat and be just fine, but you are the chef. The sugar content of the Bovine Bold should not be an issue if you decide not to foil. Good luck and keep us posted.

You know, Bob, I think I'll do exactly that. Good suggestion!

Thanks Meat! I might trim some excess, but I haven't had a good look at it out of the cryo yet.

Visit Costco as a non-member. Tell them you want to look around before joining and they will let you in. I've read here that Costco only sells flats (except in Texas). If that's true in your area you can then visit Sam's Club. They have USDA Choice Angus packers for $1.78 per lb in my area.



Good luck with your 1st briskey!

Nice bro, I do a combo of woods whist cooking. Makes my nose happy to get the different smells. I start with one wood, use another and so on.
