Another Brisket Down!

I cooked this brisket yesterday as my Memorial Day is all about relaxing! Even went to the movies while it was cooking.

Here is a photo from the night before with the dry rub...
I put the brisket on at 6:00a and let it go for 12 hours, had the experience of the lump burning straight down the middle rather than spreading out. A quick stir and I was back on track. Here it is about to rest...
And finally a shot of a couple of slices...
It is delicious especially warmed up today for sandwiches, boy are the people I work with going to jealous tomorrow!

Forgot the details cooked indirect with a platesetter and a drip pan, kept at 225 to 250 for 12 hours, used soaked hickory chips for the smoke, and rested for 30 minutes.

    One thing to look at is the way the grains run before you cook it. Then slice against the grain. If you look at your slice, you see the long strands of muscle, you should cut it the other way.

    Looks good though. Its fun doing brisket, especially the ends.

    I know but the family was chomping at the bit to eat so I did not let it rest long enough to cut correctly. Great thing is that the meat is so tender that you really don't notice that it is cut wrong.
