Default Brisket - 2nd attempt with pron

This all started at Saturday afternoon when I rubbed the brisket with Montreal and a little Worcestershire. I got the pit going this morning at 3:45 AM and had the brisket on by 4:30. I used only pecan wood for this smoke. This is what it looked like at 8:30.

At 8 hours it was looking good - I cooked it fat side up (thought that was the way to go):

I waited maybe a little too long before wrapping it in foil (~10 hours) perhaps if I cooked it fat side down it won't have been this dark. I took it off the heat when it got to 200 (total of about 13 hours) and let it rest for 2 hours.

Here is the finished brisket! It tasted great and was quite tender.

We had homemade potato salad (should have taken a pic - but it's all gone now) corn and a zucchini bake. My 9 year old baked a vanilla cloud cake with lemon curd filling. Quite nice!

A nine year old cooked that cake? Wow! That kid can bake.

Oh, your brisket is nice too. I find that a dark brisket is not a bad thing, so little bark to meat ratio, as long as it is bark and not charcoal. It looks good to me quite frankly.

Yelonutz: me either, but, then again, I don't drink any less

I am a witness! I was at the dinner table when the good Professor King served up this beautiful Beev. It was as close to a perfect brisket as a guy could want. Great flavor, tender, moist.....Great dinner! Brisket, Zucchini bake, cream corn, potato salad,and water melon. Dos XX beer and a single malt Scotch after dinner! Good Times!!

I don't think it gets much better than that brisket. Cake is great too.
