My break is officially over, making some BBQ for my wife's coworkers.  They're from Nashville and Florida and they wanted some Texas BBQ.  With that, I thought a brisket would be a good representation of what we do around these parts.  More to follow.   :)

    can't wait.

    Stabilizing egg right now so I should have it on by 2am. Going to wrap in Franklin's brand of butcher paper at 180.

    Shooting for 7pm tomorrow and will BPTC (lol) if need be.

    Yikes! That's crazy expensive. This is what I'm going to miss when we move to Nashville in August 2014. :(

    I tried to, but he wasn't done with VI's wok cook. Ugh!

    Don't pay any attention to Mickey.  He's just mad that VI is going to host the entire Salado Eggfest in his home next year.  I'm looking forward to lighting a bunch of eggs in VI's living room with one of those flamethrowing torches people use.

    Had to delay the cook, so here we are today.  Decided I was going to wrap in butcher paper and see if it makes a positive or negative difference. 


    At about 181...about to wrap and throw back on the egg.

    I don't think i'll be running out of paper anytime soon so I hope I like the results.  It's the same brand of butcher paper that Aaron Franklin uses.  Picked it up in Austin for $27.

  • If you're not happy with the results on the brisket you can always use it to wrap Christmas presents!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Yep...I always trim them.

    How much did you trim off? Just curious. I followed the general instructions from Aaron Franklin's YouTube video on my last cook and it worked out pretty well.

    I trim pretty much the same way.  I was winging it with decent success before I fine tuned my method after watching the Aaron Franklin video.  

    I would guess it was 1-1.5 pounds of various fat after I was done.  I saved the trimmings so I can make some Beef Love.  Thanks @HogHeaven

    Well, my last brisket was much better, but our guests loved it.  I'm just overly picky, but I also think it would have been better if it didn't rest for 3 hours.

    This looks familiar!

    Didn't get too many shots of the brisket since I was plating.

    You're right... That is a terrible brisket. Send the rest over to me for disposal, so you don't have to suffer it any more.

    Seriously though, I wish my briskets looked like yours. I'll take a couple of sammies!
