FINALLY!

I have a lot to learn but I have no complaints with my Ribs & Pulled Pork. That being said, Brisket has been my nemesis. I have tried a few flats and 2 packers with little success. Always ends up dry. I decided to give it another try this weekend. My luck started with a trip to Costco and, to my surprise, they had Prime Brisket. I spent 45 minutes trimming it to get the most contact with the rub. image I did a base coat of "Brisket Gold" rub, which has a nice heat to it. I let that set in and followed it with "Teddy Bear's Basis Rub" for color. image I smoke at 275 with some Peach wood. Once done, I FTCed it for several hours with some beef broth. I had separated the Point and Flat so I could come back an hour before eating and make Burnt Ends. I took the Point, cut it into cubes and combined the juices with some BBQ sauce. I had never done Burnt Ends before. They were like candy. SWMBO absolutely loved them! image The burnt ends would have been a victory but once I sliced the brisket, I knew I had FINALLY gotten one right. So juicy, so tender....simply awesome. image

    Thanks everyone. Now if the Cowgirls lose it'll be a perfect day. I know it's preseason but the fans out here act like it's the first round of the playoffs. Hilarious! :D

    That's because we don't know what the first round of the playoffs look like. BTW- your brisket looks like $hit :))

    That's what I looked like when you said you smoked your brisket with peach wood. What a savage ;)

    Hey...if its good enough for Myron, it's good enough for me. I don't have the taste for Oak smoke. Don't care for it. What do you use Tex?

    You and Myron (especially you after your little Cowboys jab) are dead to me. I'm all oak on beef. Period.

    Never heard Jerry World called the Death Star. I like it.
  • This is all very hurtful to Centex.

    Not sure about Starbucks but there is a Victoria Secrets there.

    Good looking brisket.

    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.
