2nd Try at Brisket

Put the brisket, 10.5 pound packer, on at 9:00 pm Saturday evening at 250 for approx 18 hours FTC for 3 hours. This one came out great, tender and moist.

    Too early in your career for such a home-run!!  Congrats on a great looking cook-enjoy the moment as the cook can be quite fickle.

    I have become convinced that most brisket problems involve too much heat/too little time. I use whole packers 10-14 lbs and aim for 24 hours at 220-230. I finish it in the oven double wrapped in aluminum foil. So far I have had no disasters. The oven allows me to get some sleep without having to worry about temp creep!

    Looks delicious!
    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.
