Snowy GA Brisket

Snow in GA? Yep. Time to cook a Costco Prime brisket? Yep. Trimmed of all hard fat, seasoned with Lawry's season salt, fresh cracked pepper, and Ms. Dash for 24 hours in the fridge (thanks again to @lousubcap for the 24 hour fridge seasoning rest/recommendation).  Threw on right out of the fridge at 37 degrees in the thickest part of the flat, with the guru set at 200 degrees, with 4 chunks mesquite and 9 chunks of oak. That's a new combo for me as I normally do just oak. I hope the mesquite doesn't jack it up but experimentation is how we hone out craft. Guru is set on ramp to kill the temp at 190 IT, and it's running a bit hot with dome at 221, but that's ok as I have it high in the squat dome (old style xl dome) and i'm going for 230-240 anyway. I'll report on the flavor with the mesquite, and ya, I will do burnt ends. SWMBO absolutely loves them, as do I. BTW, does anybody hate the Honda commercial where they mock the "holiday road" song as much as I do?? UGH I HATE IT!!!

    90% of what matters when cooking brisket is knowing when it's done.  Doesn't matter as much how you get there.  Nothing wrong with mesquite - maybe a little higher on the richter scale than most woods in terms of smoke flavor.

    Make a white russian or 5 and enjoy the process, man!

    Red Strip!?  Good choice, but then you need to say "mon", not "man", mon.  Seriously, ignore me, I'm drunk-(ish). Naw, I'm hammered.

    Tis the morning. Ugh. Brisket @ 174, ramp mode was engaged which slowed it down.  Ramp mode off and nap mode on, real soon.

    I will use mesquite with oak again, and every time.  Incredible flavor and I had to kick SWMBO out of the kitchen.  Flat is FTC'ing and the point is cubed, seasoned, and back on the egg at 250.  Going to toss the spuds on  in a few minutes as well.

    When you season and let rest for 24 hrs in the fridge, assuming that’s after you’ve trimmed?  I have a brisket in the fridge I’m going to cook over Christmas vacation and will give this a shot.

    Yes, trim off all the hard fat, season, fridge!

    Got a bowl of sliced flat, burnt nuggets, and green beans to remind myself how excellent it is.  Forecast for tomorrow is, more.
