    So, if I understand this new procedure for smoking an amazing brisket, it goes something like this:

    1) start drinking whiskey
    2) S&P, oak, put on egg
    3) drink until hammered 
    4) let fire go out
    5) pass out
    6) wake up in morning, start egg up again
    7) pull when jiggly like a VS model

    Did I miss anything?  
    That pretty much nails it. I cooked it at 250 when the egg was lit.
    Dome or grate? Oh, and what type of whiskey were you drinking again? I feel like these details are gonna make a difference.

    grid. As measured by cyberq wifi. I was drinking tito's (see note above to lousubcap about my uneasy truce with bourbon at the moment).

    I can't believe it but this is the only photo i got. Once we cracked it, it went fast. The lighting in the room makes it look a little redder than it was but it definitely had a little color to it. image
    Great... just one photo? That's like having only one frame showing Nessie, BigFoot, or the Colossal Squid.

    Maybe they'll be a "Search for Brisket" show on Discovery

    DAMN, I love that video.  The slow motion makes me crack up.
    Me too and we didn't even add that "thud"'sound. That's the way it came out on the video.
    I like how you back off and walk away after dropping it.  Like it was a meat grenade.  haha

    I laughed when I saw that too. Totally unstaged.
    That was the best part.  I heard this in my mind as it happened:

    I bet it looks a little red because your smoke ring goes all the way through.

    I never get a ring on the egg unless I doctor it up. It wasn't this red. Our table has a redwood hue to it and the lighting was dim. It was a little red but it looked like brisket.

    Right - I was joking.  I don't get much of a smoke ring on my briskets either.

    oh yeah- and this is not the NEW procedure for cooking brisket. it's the only procedure. I like to keep it interesting. If there is not some type of passing out, switching food/pit probes, fires going out, then the briskets are never good. I think they like excitement and chaos.

    Now I'm itching to order a brisket.

    @BYS1981-the ordering part is easy/reasonable-just be ready for the "shock factor" when the shipping charges get sorted out (at least for the SRF briskets being tossed around here).  But as @C-T notes-" It ain't cheap to overnight 17 lb frozen bowling balls all over the country."  And that's why he will only toss watermelons when @lakewade gives him the okay from now on or so I would guess :)>-

    If you really look at it, It's $10 per lb all in (including shipping). Go find a great quality cut a beef for that. If you are feeding a group, I wouldn't think twice about it. It's the best cut of beef I've ever eaten. I fed 12 adults and 6 teen boys for (free) $160. That's well under $10 a head for the best brisket any of them have ever had. You can't cater crap bbq in this town for that. If you are comfortable cooking, handling, and slicing it, it's actually a great deal. I wouldn't buy one just for us but I'll never not buy one for a planned party ever again.

    It's interesting because it's kind of a chicken-and-egg thing for me.  I think I could justify the $10/lb cost if I was convinced that I was good enough cooking brisket that it was going to come out to be worth it.  On the other hand it would be interesting to know just how much difference the higher quality meat makes, even when you're just a "brisket beginner".

    I agree but if you can dump salt and pepper over it, keep you egg from going out overnight....(never mind that part).......at 250 you will be fine. Just hit me up when you are ready and I'll tell you when to pull it, rest it, and how to cut it.

    I'm planning on doing a few briskets first, get my feet wet, then dive into the wagyu.

  • Snake river farms in Boise? That place is about 40 min from my house. Now I am intrigued.

    I'm curious what they mark up to ship...hmm.  
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ...
    ·
  • The shipping costs aren't small, but they're probably reasonable given that they're sending something weighing 10+ lbs that also has to be kept cool somehow.

  • @cazzy- the shipping on ours was $4 per lb. The briskets were only $6 per lb (same as whole foods for half the quality) before shipping. $6 per lb is a steal for the quality you get.



    ·
  • Hmmmmmm, I gotta travel to Boise in a couple months. Maybe a visit and some briskets in a carrion cooler...

    I'm thinking I may need to order a few to knock shipping down per unit. Perhaps a group buy...
