Fast Brisket is done...

I last left off with the brisket running indirect at 375° dome with some hickory smoke.

When the meat hit 150° internal I went to foiling. Back on the egg, I cut the heat down to 300° dome to slow things a bit. My target meat temp was 200° internal.

After hitting target I blanketed with more foil and rested the whole package in the kitchen oven, heat off, to rest for 1 hour. Then I pulled off the aluminum, threw on some hickory chips and seared the beef one more time.

With anticipation I sliced....

:woohoo: I did it!
Juicy, hint of smoke, flavorful, tender brisket! And with DP Raising the Steaks Seasoning this brisket tasted like steak especially around the crust areas.
Plated with coleslaw, some chips, a pickle and Becks brew to quaff. Outstanding! A big thank you to Vidalia1 for his recipe, "Fast Brisket"! :cheer:


  • Looks great Clay. How long did the whole process take?

    Thanks Frank. Geeez am I stupid... Actually I'm falling asleep, had to delet a ton of 'd's when I dozed off with fingers on the keyboard, he he.

    Let's see...just about 5 hours including the one hour rest before the sear to finish.

    Clay, that looks really good. Great job!

    How long did you cook it total? I'm thinking of trying the hotter method next time, but have no idea how long it will take.

    Beautiful brisket Clay. Looks very moist and juicy. Very nice pics and explanation.

    I've not done a brisket, always been afraid. I'll have to try Vidalia1's Turbo Brisket.

    I feel like I can walk into Texas with my head held up high. Finally...the monkey is off my back for this Up North boy who didn't know much about cookin a good brisket until now.
    Thank you. And a special thanks to Vidalia1, a gentleman and a great cook! :)
