Brisket Attempt #2

Decided to do Brisket this past weekend.  I have posted on brisket before but since there have been so many questions on brisket recently by a number of new people, I decided to post some more pics of this cook.  Here we go.

Started with the "Smoklahoma" rub from Steven Raichlen and made some changes.  Includes smoked and regular paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper, kosher salt, brown sugar, oregano, celery salt, black pepper, cumin, mild chile powder, and garlic powder.

I had a nice 6# CAB Brisket

image

I rubbed it and let it sit for a couple of hours

image

I decided to cook "Travis style".  I filled the roasting pan with Shiner Bock, Beef broth and a red onion

image

I set my DigiQ for 285, measured at the grid, and got it going using some apricot wood for smoke.

image

I cooked until it hit about 165 internal temp

image

Then I dropped it down in the liquid to finish cooking and raised the temp to about 315

image

Once I could insert and remove the temp probe without resistance, I took it off and let it sit.  Internal temp was at about 200.  Total cook time was about 5 1/2 hours.

Sliced it up and served with baked beans and a salad.

Have to say, this was the best brisket I have ever done.  Very tender and juicy.  This method works great, especially if you are only cooking a flat.  The higher temp and braising helps to keep it from drying out but you still get bark and a smoke ring doing it this way.

  • nice buckeye! I really like the braise for smaller flats. I think it's a great idea and yours looks great

    How was the liquid that you cooked it in? Did you use it on the slices?

  • Love, total cook was about 5 1/2 hours. Next time, I will let it sit a little longer wrapped in foil before I slice but everyone was hungry. jrog, I actually took some if the liquid, separated the fat, and mixed with some Sweet Baby Rays and it was excellent. Also, one more treat from cooking this way is that the onions have been cooking in the beef broth all that time and are excellent to eat.
