After my wife and Scott sampled my ribs the other night, my Mrs was nice enough to point out that brisket was on sale for half price ($1.49 a pound) and asked if she should pick one up for further experimentation. Well after my success with ribs, of course! She came home with a 10.6 pounder, smallish, but a nice size because it would not need cutting to fit in our little bullet smoker.
It took me a couple of days to finish off the ribs and I decided to do an overnight smoke starting late Tuesday night. I put the coals on about 11:15 and gave the brisket a good rub down with salt, pepper, a few spices, and my secret liquid. I didn't trim a thing, just rubbed it down and slapped it on the top rack of the smoker.
I got up about 6:15 am to check on things and found the temperature gauge just on the low side of the ideal range. Perfect timing. Here's the yummy sight that greeted me.
About 1:30 I pulled the brisket from the oven and set it on the stove to rest while a ran some errands. I didn't get back til about 3 pm, but it was still plenty hot and here is the delicious sight I unwrapped.
