Well, after a delay in posting, I am back with my first brisket. To start with, I have picks of the rubbed brisket, just before I put it on the smoker.

Made a Cider/beer/coffee mop. Interested in seeing what kind of flavor I find. :)

I'll have a quick pic at the next mop. Then you'll have to wait until it's done. :)

Probably could have/should have gone another hour.

It was just a 3 pounder.

It WAS tender, but had room for more.

Biggest compliment from the wife was that it wasn't too smokey.

Wife not happy with the taste of the meat itself (not the rub, etc). She asked if I would try a rump roast, instead. I told her chuck would be a better option.

Nice pron - looks like you're off to a great start. Did you like the taste?

I DID like the taste. Nice mixture of the rub and mop; just hoping for a bit more tenderness next time.

jeffsee, how did you determine that it was done cooking??

I'm sure you heard it before, but if you use a probe (thermometer probe, pocket thermo, ice pick, etc.) and you can slide the probe into the meat with little resistance at around 190* or so (like butta), you have achieved the tenderness you are searching for.

Oh....I know. The usual problem occurred. My wife didn't want to wait an additional hour or so. Honestly, I nailed the taste. I will do the same method next time and just ignore her.

Took the leftovers into school today. Set the crock pot on low for about three hours. English department had some and liked it. Gave the last of it to my students. They loved it-I might finally get the apple wood I've been having trouble locating.

Looks great and heck yeah...try a chuckie if she wants more beef flavor. You will not be disappointed!
