I picked up a prime brisket from Sam's last Friday and am just getting around to cooking it. It is my 1st brisket on my new summit. It is a prime packer from Sam's. It has the thickest flat that I have ever had on a brisket. I like to buy around 12 lbs briskets, so this one was perfect. It had a good size gash in one side of the flat, but oh well. I trimmed pretty aggressive and rubbed it down with the La Barbecue rub recipe I got from this site. I plan on wrapping with butcher paper in 4 hours. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/664ab9e112d9a0a49f5d899a25c380f2.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/df4330a9ca41e2380ac17474b2e9cafd.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/ba1208b968ddebb32ee008e3b9cca2b9.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/f2e36bdf54612c75adc2f62f9efca652.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/097afceb37d8d9a8db7c6d70550a74b2.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/3c9b6022f83898577c94c8bca99ede77.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171208/cdf20e9f8d757934d3c5a0b62a2dfe01.jpg

Thanks for the photos? How did you light the coals, I am curious if you used the igniter or another method. Also, I have been debating whether or not to buy a summit. What do you think of it?
Thanks,
Alan

Did you rub it with the pickle juice/mustard slather too? And nice splits. I know my wood chopping skills are not that precise :-P

I used the ignitor under a charcoal chimney. Worked well. Not as fast as my fish fryer, but more convenient. I let it burn while I trimmed, then took the chimney out and filled the smoker with charcoal and wood, then added the coals. I have no complaints so far on the summit

Brisket is finally done. Took a couple of hours longer than I anticipated but I guess that is BBQ. It is resting now and I will slice in an hour or so

It was good, but not great. I am beginning to think that I am a foil guy and not paper. My briskets seem to be juicier with foil. Anyway, not a bad 1st smoke on the summit https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/f413efd605538ac000db1eeedee505d5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/6b904098d7c369c722fca874c2bed78b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/3876d3183ea3467673f0d8e1bceba1b0.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/54e7e3bd4bee5a04f041fc0c9914b4b3.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/bff5c06bbef9aa7138e733fb4ffcfbee.jpg

Here is what is left over of the charcoal. I didn't fill it all the way full, but it had quite a bit to start with. This was also the 1st smoke I did with the Weber charcoal briquettes https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171209/a1de2a5c0840724d1ceeb94b62497c4f.jpg
