Brisket cook

<p />All the brisket talk lately sent me shopping. This is a 6.4 pound choice grade flat from Sam's all trimmed and rubbed up. [p]brisketflat070307temp.jpg[p]This was a fast cook, 230ish degrees grid with guru on woo2. I used a square pan to give the flat total indirect coverage. Even used one of the stainless grids! When I pulled it off, I not sure about this one: strange bark pattern, fast cook.....[p]080307brisketflat.jpg[p]It sat in the cooler wrapped in foil for two hours.[p]slicedbrisket.jpg[p]Sliced against the grain. I just stood there eating it, no sauce, buns or sides. In fact cleansing my soul, I ate all the sliced pieces in the picture, right off the cutting board. They never touched a plate. Ok so I don't get struck down by lightning today, I sliced more and ate them too. ACGP, Inc.

    Dang, good looking brisket. Just can't beat those flats at Sams. I do agree with Wise One though. Some habits are hard to break. LOL[p]Mike

    Wise One, you don't get to weigh 250 pounds and on cholesterol medicine without consuming your fair share (plus) of protein.....and beer! ACGP, Inc.

    I've not had the best of luck with flats. Those from SAMs are choice right? Shame SAMs doesn't carry the packer briskets.[p]H

    dhuffjr, my Sam's carries choice grade flats and select grade packers. Costco only carries choice grade packers. T ACGP, Inc.

    tjv,[p]My Costco carries flats and packers (a lot more small flats than anything, but I got a nice 11.6# packer there yesterday). But the only butts they carry are boneless....go figure.
  • dhuffjr,
    Most Sam's around us do. Only place in town that does.

    Looks great! My guru arrived yesterday. I was disappointed with the selection at HEB. I haven't checked out Randalls (aka Tom Thumb?). I guess I'll have to break down and join Costco or Sams...[p]Oh, what did you use for a rub?[p]-Jeeves (in Austin)
