    Looks good, nice smoke ring and looks moist and not dry at all. Good job!

  • nailed it dude. The rub laid down just the way you want it to and the texture looks perfect. That's exactly the way I like mine to look. I'm sure it tastes great.Congrats!

    This may be the wrong analogy today, but, I found myself reading this with the same intensity of a pilot on the ground helping a rookie pilot land after the instructor has passed out. Only on this forum, where so much help is given and appreciated.

    I will say that much of the conversation over our dinner was spent trying to describe this forum and the support surrounding it .
    Putting into words not only doesn't do it justice but also makes it sound so weird.

    Cooking this brisket was a journey for sure .

    Thanks for coming along for the ride !!

    That looks great.  Glad it turned out.

    I will be trying this as soon as I have a free weekend to devote to it (which looks like may not be until May).

  • Putting into words not only doesn't do it justice but also makes it sound so weird. So true. When you talk to normal people, they get the 1000 mile stare when you try to explain it.

    Yeah I hear ya Saluki ,
    Now that I have experienced truly amazing brisket I will be chasing that.
    Yesterday I learned why people love brisket

    It really ruined every brisket I have eaten before this .

    Now you know why us Texas Folk pass on burnt ends. I enjoy a perfectly cooked point too much to pour more rub and sauce all over it!

  • pantsypantspantsypants Posts: 1,191
    Up until last night I never understood why you Texans would eat brisket without Sauce .

    So now i have the whole point as leftovers .

    what should i do with it ?

    Great cook @pantsypants. Looks perfect!

    I had a packer on yesterday too. Mine didn't get much smoke for some reason. It was tender and the rub tasted good but no significant smoke. No cut pics as I had 20 people waiting to eat after church. No brisket leftovers either... damn. I know what you mean about not needing sauce after you get a good one.

    eat it?

    I slice it and food saver in 1lb packs. I warm that in my sous vide but just a hot tub in the sink for 10 min or so will warm it up perfectly. Eat it plain or make a sammich on cheap white bread with a little sauce and you will be happy.

    We will learn him right cen! You know at our homes, the point is the first thing that gets attacked! We will learn him right....

    Like @cazzy mentioned, the point is where I start eating. I'm planning to make a Guinness Beef Stew later today using my leftover flat/point mix I had in the freezer from one I did that was just way too big for the eaters I had. Here's what I'm planning to try, first time, so no idea how it will turn out.
