View Full Version : Cooking advice needed - Corned Beef

04-26-2008, 08:05 PM

I picked up a "Sy Ginsberg corned beef brisket flat" today at the grocery store. It's a pretty small piece of meat, around 5 lb. I've got it soaking in water to get some of the salt out of it, and I'm planning on smoking it tomorrow on the BGE.

I've done lots of briskets before, but only on CB, and it didn't turn out very well at all, so I'm looking for your advice. Should I foil at some point? How high should I take it for slicing? For pulling?

Thanks in advance.

take it to 160 and then foil and take it to 195 wrap in more foil and a towel and cooler it for aprox. 1 hour you can check before you cooler it by sticking a probe in and it should go in like butter when done .... dont forget the pron

I've been doing points on my drum and taking them to *200 no foil.

This one is a flat (or part of a flat), so less fatty than a point. I'm thinking I need to foil to avoid drying it out--comments?

By the way, here it is soaking overnight:
