Sunday Funday - North Alabama Wagyu Brisket

I found a farm that raises wagyu beef 20 miles from my house. My 1st order consisted of short ribs and brisket. I smoked the short ribs on the Traeger last week and they were phenomenal. The brisket went on the large BGE this morning at 5:25am with white oak for smoke. The egg settled in around 225-230 and had crept up slowly to right around 300 by 2:50pm when it probed tender. This thing was around 13lbs pre trim and was on the egg right close to 9.5 hours total. The first pic is pre trim. The second pic is after it was rubbed with Dizzy Pick Cow Lick and going on the egg. The third pic is about 1/2 way through. The last pic is when coming off the egg. It is now in FTC getting settled down for a 5pm dinner.

    @pgprescott and @dmchicago thanks guys. I’m working on some deviled eggs and gonna smoke some mac-n-cheese also. Dinner will be a little later than planned. I got lazy watching the Braves game and didn’t start the sides when I had intended.

    Man you got pretty scientific with those foil shields on the end. Are those parabolic heat deflectors? 

    That looks amazing. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Great looking Brisket!

    Thanks guys. To say the brisket turned amazing would be a huge understatement. I wouldn’t change a thing. I definitely ate way to much.

    This picture doesn’t do this thing justice. It was very juicy and tender.

    Deviled eggs and Mac and cheese too! Yes please.

    Thanks everybody. Looking forward to brisket sandwiches this evening. 

    @Jcl5150 the biggest thing the wagyu brings is the fat content. It was definitely there. Great marbling helped keep it moist.
