I have a lot to learn but I have no complaints with my Ribs & Pulled Pork. That being said, Brisket has been my nemesis. I have tried a few flats and 2 packers with little success. Always ends up dry. I decided to give it another try this weekend. My luck started with a trip to Costco and, to my surprise, they had Prime Brisket.
I spent 45 minutes trimming it to get the most contact with the rub.
I did a base coat of "Brisket Gold" rub, which has a nice heat to it. I let that set in and followed it with "Teddy Bear's Basis Rub" for color.
I smoke at 275 with some Peach wood. Once done, I FTCed it for several hours with some beef broth. I had separated the Point and Flat so I could come back an hour before eating and make Burnt Ends. I took the Point, cut it into cubes and combined the juices with some BBQ sauce. I had never done Burnt Ends before. They were like candy. SWMBO absolutely loved them!
The burnt ends would have been a victory but once I sliced the brisket, I knew I had FINALLY gotten one right. So juicy, so tender....simply awesome.
