View Full Version : First Hot N Fast Brisket

Story is my buddy's father in law is a "meat man". Hes the head honcho at a grocery store in the meat department for his whole life. So when I tell him I cant find any decent packers he says he'll see if his father in law can get something. I said, ok...I want a choice or better CAB packer brisket (point and flat) 14-20 pounds. Two days later, "he brought over your brisket".

What is it? A standard 7 pound flat cut.:tsk: Thing is I never really messed with whole flat cuts and it was IBP choice. So hell, figure Ill cook it up today, but because of time constraints Ill do my first HH brisket.

Went with the 22.5" WSM with blue K and my IQue110. It was impossible to maintain 350!! Either it would run around 300 or if I cracked the lid or door it would spike 375+. Either way I fought it all day but had nothing better to do:becky: Let it get a few hours in smoke than foiled it up for a few more hours. Had someone drop off a cord of wood, by the time he left I checked the brisket and it was LIKE BUTTA, but around 205:doh: O well, let it rest for a bit in a cooler and cut it up.

It was actually mighty tastey:-o Some of the best flat meat ive had:thumb:

Figure 205 is high but with the high heat cook you normally take it kinda higher anyway? Either way, heres some pron! Sorry for the long post, that Knob Creek is catching up to me:thumb:

I'd recommend doing HH at 325f so you never burn a rub with sugar. Unless it's windy out, my IQue will hold that temp.
