Clean burn after a labor day double (pics)

Had to do a clean burn today to get rid of all the residual fat crusted to the inside my egg.  Friend was hosting a giant labor day party so I told him I would smoke a brisket and a pork shoulder.  Ended up with a 16 lbs brisket and an 8.5 shoulder.  Anyone ever cut a brisket to make it fit on the large?

Anyway, somehow I forgot to bring the point with me and it found its way into my fridge.

I keep thinking simpler is better.  No mustard, nothing in the drip pan, no foiling.  I did inject the brisket but I don't think I'm doing that anymore either.  If you look at the pic of the sliced you can see the injections.  Brisket took 25 hours and the should took 12.

    Instead of cutting it, you might be able to get away with draping it over an inverted v-rack (if you have one).

    I just squished it in there.  It was touching both sides.

    Firebox and place setter are clean but I finally fried my gasket . . .
  • Mein Gott that is clean.  And I, along with many others, haven't had a gasket in years.
  • At what temp did you do the brisket?  Looks delish!

    Brisket @ 225 grate for 25 hours, no crutch.  It was a hit.

    Clean burn, filled the firebox with lump, put the daisy wheel inside, opened up the vent and let 'er rip.

    Cover it in oil and put it in your oven at 450 for a couple of hours.  You can use an egg as an oven too, although you'll get some soot on it.
