Yet another brisket cook...

Wanted to make another brisket, so I picked up a tiny 9lb brisket.  So cute when they're this small!   :P

I seasoned this lil guy with 50/50 Kosher Salt and 16 mesh black pepper...and used oak for smoke.

At 9 hours...looks so tiny on the large! lol

This brisket has sealed the deal, i'm no longer going to cook 225 grid...going to go 260 on all my briskets from here on out.  The flat was trailing the finished point by about 10 degrees and was tough.  So, I decided to separate the point and I wrapped the flat and threw it back on till it was fork tender.  The only thing I can think is that the temp was too low...the point took 17 hours and the flat took 18 hours.  So darn odd, around the same temp i've done all but one of my briskets and I usually buy 13-15lb packers.  The brisket was very floppy and had a nice thick flat which is also no different than how I select all my packers.

Before I pulled the flat and threw it back on!

None the less, the flavor was spot on and was a pretty good lil brisket!  :)

Served w/ beans and esquites.

    280 grid has been my sweet spot. Looks like you found yours. I've got to look for small packers. All I ever fine is 10# plus.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Kirkland ground...good stuff. Same size as the kosher salt so I love it!

    Looks awesome! I am sticking with the simple salt, pepper, and onion powder for rub and oak, maybe some mesquite or hickory as well, for smoke...

    Enjoy!!!

    Yeah, I likely will go back and forth between S&P and Grand Champion. It will just depend what type of mood I'm in.

    I don't see myself switching from oak though. I used a combination of oak chips and oak chunks this cook and I had the perfect amount of smoke and the best smoke ring I've ever gotten. The chunks were Western Oak "Cooking" Chunks which I grabbed by mistake thinking they were smoking chunks. Is there a difference? No clue, but I loved the results! :D

    Yep. Rudy's sells salt, pepper and their own rub. It's pretty good. I won 3rd place ribs using it.

    While I appreciate the compliment, I wouldn't go that far...probably just the camera. :P

    Really though, lots of folks have posted some stellar brisket lately:

    @griffin @thailandjohn @hapster ,and a guy just hit a home run on his first attempt.

    In the end though, @MrCookingNurse just showcased how to throwdown a brisket in any element and just took the Brisket King Crown from @travisstrick & cen-tex! :D

    I haven't cooked a flat...I hear they're hard to cook though. Have you tried @travisstrick 's old method?

    I have some of the rub and I like it. I think It's loaded with MSG so what could be bad about that? Didn't know they sold pepper though. I'll have to grab some.

    Its super corse. Perfect for ribs and brisket. Cheap too.

    Granzin's in New Braunfels has good coarse pepper, too. And, of course, 5 coolers full of goodness. Its super corse. Perfect for ribs and brisket. Cheap too.
