brisket cook

Thinking of putting a brisket on Friday night so it'll be ready for kickoff Saturday night. It's a 10 pound piece. If I put on about 10:30 or so at a nice, low 200* that should take me well into Saturday afternoon before it's ready. Of course, I'll need to cook some hot dogs or something since one of the folks coming to watch the game is actually going to pull for the Bulldogs. Hate to tell him, the brisket is for Tiger fans only!

    Shelby,[p]"Dizzy Dust" or "Cow Lick" mixed with brown sugar makes a great rub for brisket.[p]I just finished cooking a 12 pounder last night. Never used that much sugar in a rub before. Makes a great crust and helps (I think) keep the juices in. [p]It was the best I've ever cooked, and with the neighbors' help, it's all gone 8-([p]BOB
    Go Dogs (but not the ones you are talking about)

    Hard to say how long it will take at 200 dome temp. Problem is your cooking level will most likely be 180 or least for the first few hours. 225-250 would prolly be a better bet....or if you can monitor your cooking level and keep that at 210-225, you are in bizness.[p]What time is kickoff? I'd say allow for 16 hours cooking time, and 3 hours in the cooler. If it takes 18 hours, you still have 1 hour resting in the cooler. If it takes 14, then 5 hours in the cooler is doable.[p]Best of luck to your team! Go Terps!

    250° and about 15 hours should do it.
    I have cooked many brisket at 250° and I don't think they could have come out any more tender had I done them at a lesser temp.
    The lower temps are much harder to hold and the time needed is too long for me.
    I would start checking the internal meat temp at around 12 hours as it could be getting done. They seem to vary as to when they are ready.
    Be sure to wrap and rest for 45 min or so, as that makes a big difference in the juicy factor.
    Good luck. It is hard to beat brisket!

  • Shelby,
    A brisket is a good idea for the game. I just might do one myself. I hope the Tigers are ready. I know they are able. Go Tigers...[p]Spring (Tiger Fan) Chicken
