  • Dale,

    It looks incredibly moist! Was your injection a JD product or a mix you made?

    That must have been a high temperature cook. I'd be curious what you did.

    A normal low and slow cook would have taken much longer. I'm going to try a high temp brisket cook next time I do one.

    Barry I have had big brisket's take longer and some shorter, the meat to fat content makes a big difference.This one reached the plateau at 8 hrs and lasted about two hrs,then proceeded at a nice clip from their.It was cooked at 225-235 the whole cook.

    I know what you are saying Dave I spend an aveage of 400$ and more when I get to cater an event.The meat quality is very high and the prices are pretty good.This brisket was 1.63 lb and it was a great cut!!

    That IS a BEAST! It sure looks TASTEE! :woohoo:
  • ShiffShiff Posts: 1,636
    That's an amazingly short cook. I once cooked an 18 pound packer cut and it took 25 hours at 225-250 grid temp.

    I wish we had restaurant depot around here since I've read so much about them.
