View Full Version : My best brisket yet.

So I don't know if what the exact reason is for this being way way better than any other brisket I've made. I used a Prime grade brisket which I never have used. I trimmed it up better than I have before. Smoked it on my brothers in laws Traeger. I wrapped it in foil at a internal temp of 167. And took it until probe tender which was a IT of 199. Anyway it came out great. I'm always my toughest critic and don't compliment myself but this brisket deserved it. Best I've made and the best I have ever eaten. Everyone that ate it said the same thing.

Sweet monkey love!! That color is perfect. I will say grade does make some difference. I don't notice a ton of difference from choice to prime (though some primes I've had almost look like wagyu). The last 2 briskets I did the first was a prime and the next one was a Select. Quite a noticeable different in flavor. Select was still good, but a lot less fat especially in the flat.

Thanks for sharing. I keep staring at the bark color in that first pic :-D

Also that's a good smoke ring and noticed you said Traeger. A few threads around recently with folks having trouble getting smoke into the brisket. Did you use an amaze tube or anything? Not that color is indicative of smoke flavor (which I get), but that just looked so good.

Briskets have always been about 50% successful for me, that's probably why I tend to do fewer of them. Yours looks fantastic and would be a huge success in my book! Congrats

Definitely a win! Great bark considering you used foil. Most will foil too early and degrade the bark. Seems like you have this figured out. I like choice and prime and trim aggressively. That seems to work for me.

I have an Amazin tube but did not use it. I used Traeger hickory pellets. I know some people don't care about a smoke ring but for whatever reason, I do care.

The IT was At 167 when I foiled and it had been on the smoker 7 hours already.

12Ring you are right, that is one awesome looking brisket. Super job. Did you wrap in paper or foil?

It's beautiful, too. Great cook!

Just out of curiousity, what will a prime brisket set you back a pound?

I wrapped it in heavy duty foil from Costco.

50/50 Kosher salt and Coarse black pepper is all I used.

It's beautiful, too. Great cook!

It cost $2.99 a lb at Costco. They had about 20 of them so I sifted through them all and picked the one I like best.
