'Tis the season ... so be sure to see our Holiday Entertaining Recipes
for some terrific ideas. And, it’s not too early to start thinking about our Country Christmas
menu for any of your holiday meals! For something different, how about mixing it up with our Light Southern Meal
with Grilled Catfish and Watermelon Salsa! Happy Holidays!
First brisket going to be tomorrow...
Picked up a 5 lb flat at Costco today. Was going to get a packer but not home tonight so could not start until tomorrow morning. Going to go with S&P rub for my first. Then plan on going with a 275-300 dome (over a drip pan with Spaten Optimator, Beef Broth, Onions, "what's this here sauce" and garlic and cayenne) until I hit about 165 internal. At that point I am going to place the flat into the drip pan with only about half exposed (a la Travis method). When it gets to 195 I will probe until tender. Then FTC until dinner. I plan on posting pics of the process and results. Hope I remember... :-D
Wish me luck!
