Doing work son!

Wife is at her mother's house with the two kiddos. They had the baby shower for our 3rd child on the way (boy!)

She decided to stay an extra night so I am going to do my first brisket (16lbs!!)  Any tips? thinking of doing at 250 dome temp. Should I rub with mustard and dizzy pig or salt/pepper?

To surprise her I am going to clean the whole house as a surprise for my prego wife. Doing work son!


  • I'd skip the mustard, On beef I like just salt and pepper or something like Montreal Seasoning
    Good job on cleaning the house. She will appreciate your effort

  • Do work, son. But do it at 300 dome. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • how long will it take at 300 dome?
  • 1 hr per pound.

  • Please let us know how it turns out. I'm curious to know using that method. (300 dome for 1 hr per pound) thanks

    When I did it at 300 it took 1 1/2 hours per pound. As everyone says though, brisket is to temp and to feel as you probe it. Have fun, send pics!

    1-1.5 hours is a good estimate. Plan to finish a few hours early and FTC to keep it hot. Leaving yourself plenty of wiggle room time wise will lower your stress level significantly.
