Default 1st Brisket; 1st Fattie (Pron)!

Hey everyone,
So it's been a while since I've had time to post or even read much as school has been kicking my butt for a while.

Anyway, over the holidays I got a chance to try out doing a brisket, and I did a fattie yesterday for the first time as well.

The brisket is about 6#s and is rubbed with seasoned salt, garlic powder, montreal seasoning, and some black pepper (i love pepper). Cooked it at about 240 for around 9 hours.

It turned out pretty great! I was really excited because it looked similar to the ones I had seen y'all cook on the site. I wish I had foiled it after it had about 2 hours left as it did dry out a little bit (), but it was still great. The point was perfectly moist and was probably my favorite part.

As for the fatty; the fatty is just a mix of regular/hot jimmy dean sausage with some dizzy pig rub and monterey jack/chedder cheese on the inside.

Wish I would have used more rub and more cheese, but it was really good. Just had to fatty biscuits for breakfast!

Anyone in South Carolina and has a decent place to get brisket packers for a decent price please let me know! Costco had flats only and they were $$. Got a small packer from Harris Teeter, but it was $4.99/lb!!!

Would love to find a place to get them cheaper as I really loved the Brisket, but I can't afford to keep paying anywhere near that amount.

Thanks for looking!

Looks fantastic! Just a pointer from my experience though...I don't think lack of foil caused your brisket to seem dry, it just could have cooked longer is probably all that it needed. Until it gets fully cooked and fully tender, briskets are kind of dry because the moisture comes from the gelatin produced by the collagen when it breaks down.

Still looks absolutely delicious though! And that fatty looks marvelous too!

^^^oh YEAH.... what he said^^^
Awesome lookin' munchies there. Beautiful, bright smoke ring and black, crusty-looking bark on brisket and juicy, red-rimmed slices with ooey, gooey cheese dripping from the fatty.... Mmmmhmmm I'd hit ALL that!
