  • “First time doing a brisket flameboss 200” is thread you gave a very comprehensive post for setup of a brisket cook. I put it on this morning at 6:00 am it’s already in the stall, should time out ok for a rest in the Yeti and dinner at 6:00 pm. It’s a 13# SRF Black I’ll be checking it at 200. Found it interesting that the better grade goes to higher temps usually. Thanks for the help.

  • Travis Thank you for the method it worked excellent. 
    7# flat choice from Kroger$2.99 a #
    Saturday
    lathered it up with yellow mustard 
    then mixed together equal parts of
    Coarse Sea Salt
    Coarse Ground Black pepper
    Coarse Ground Garlic 
    then coated the Brisket wrapped in press n Seal
    let rest overnight in the fridge
    Set the Egg up for an indirect (place setter feet up and wrapped in foil)
    at 0600 Sunday Morning removed the brisket from the fridge let sit to get room temp little over an hour while i lit the egg and stabilized it, hard as heck to see smoke when it is dark out. finally stabilized at 225 and stayed there for the next 10 hours.
    Placed the flat on the grate fat side up to smoke some at IT of 145 removed the flat and placed into pan with one bottle of allegro Regular, one Beer,and a whole chopped Vidalia(onion).
    then covered pan with foil closed the lid.
    The target temp was set at 205 the highest i ever got was 198 when it dropped back to 196 i probed the meat the probe went in like poking warm butter.
    then FTC the flat. for about 45 minutes. all 7#'s were devoured in no time.
    the only own side was it tasted a little salty. Again, Thank you Travis!!

    I have been trying to figure out a couple of details on this method, all advice is good.
    let me know if this is correct or where I should correct,
    Roughly a 7# brisket (6.67)
    cover with cheap yellow mustard
    then cover with Equal parts
    Sea salt (coarse)
    coarse ground pepper
    coarse garlic
    wrap in press n seal let sit overnight 
    now on day if cook
    take meat out let it get to room temp 
    meanwhile set up egg for long indirect cook
    capture temp around 225-250
    return to  kitchen chop up a vidalia onion 1/4 by 1/4
    add 1 beer and 1 bottle of Allegro to a pan
    let sit
    once the fumes clear add the flavor wood 
    with the temp at 225-250 place the brisket fat side up on the grill close lid once meat hits It of 145 place in pan with marinade and close lid
    when meat hits temp of 190 remove and FTC for at least 1 hour?
    Perfect!

    Just bored I guess - this thread hasn’t been bumped in 2020.  I still haven’t cooked a brisket worth much - decent, but most ended up in chili.  I may have to splurge on SRF and see what happens.  Hell - I’m spending about 25% of discretionary $ as normal while SIP, so this may be a good time.

    Whatever gets you to the finish line is OK in my book.  Just don't tell me it's always cooking to the same temperature.

    IMO this is a good way to cook a brisket for Chili. When finished refrigerate the liquid and brisket overnite fat will harden for easy removal, I actually keep some, and the brisket will be easy to cube. The liquid makes a great base.

    This is now the most viewed active thread.  It is like the tortoise.  Just keeps on keepin on.  Makes me smile everytime I see it :)

    I think I might try a brisket this way sometime soon.  There has to be something to it.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Correction, only on the top. Not the bottom.
    Travis, when you say bottom, you mean the fat side is down?
