Just another boring brisket post...

 Got this 12 pound packer from a local butcher. Came trimmed almost perfectly:



Rubbed with just salt and pepper. Into the egg over Rockwood and hickory chunks. Flame Boss 200 keeping an eye on things for me...



Smoked mashed potatoes coming up after the brisket is resting in a FTC.

    Brisket is not boring!  Looks like you're on your way to a great cook!

    Might be my best yet. But I think I say that every time I make one of these...



    Sorry, no pictures of the taters, but I chopped them up with some onions and garlic, braised/boiled in a pan in chicken stock, then drained and whipped into mashed potatoes with butter and cream. 

    We ate well tonight! 

    Thanks for lookin'!

  • Looks wonderful!  Yet to do my first on a BGE so I was curious how much time for that size brisket assuming 225-250? I guess some even wrap in butcher paper or foil the last few hours.

    Taters- who cares about taters... =)   When messing with the cow, there is no second place!
    Great bark and result right there.  Congrats.  Enjoy the banquet.

    Great result! Lots of guys wondering how you got such a great smoke ring I bet. Nice!

    I just checked my FB200 data. Lit the egg at 6am, put the brisket on unwrapped at 7 am. Let it ride at 225 for about 7 hours. It was in the stall, and I wanted to eat it before tomorrow, so I wrapped it (foil) and bumped the temp up (several times) until the egg was at 350, internal temp 201. Total cook time a little less than 9 hours. Then I took it off, left it wrapped in the foil in my oven at 170 (as low as it will go) while I did the potatoes.

    As for the smoke ring, I have no idea how I got it so nicely on this one. I did almost exactly the same thing a few weeks ago and had no smoke ring at all. But they tasted the same: delicious!

    North of Central Jersey, south of North Jersey. Straight out Rt 3 from the Lincoln tunnel.

    It was a big deal for me to find this butcher with decent prices on whole packers.  Place called Caldwell Marketplace. The Costco's around here don't carry them, I get jealous of everyone else on here with their $2.99/lb prime packers! 

    This was choice, and more expensive than Costco, but it tasted damn good to me. And I've cooked two SRF gold briskets. This one was just as good, as far as I could tell.

    Great looking brisket. There's something to be said about starting with a good piece of beef.  

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.
