Brisket Sunday
« on: May 05, 2019, 03:40:06 PM »
Feeling inspired by HoosierKettle, I went brisket today.  No hanging, but the 26 did the job last night.  How nice to get a 70 degree day after a week of rain.  Excellent smoking conditions. 

Salt, pepper, and smoke from Indiana hickory. 

Separated the point for burnt ends.  Those became a birthday present for a coworker from Kansas City, who loves them.

Very nice!  The 26 will always be my go to for butts and brisket and pretty much everything else except ribs and chicken on the wsm.

So salt pepper and thatís it?  Thatís pretty much what I did except I put a little bbq rub on too. I used equal parts salt and pepper and that was way too much pepper for my tastes. What ratio did you use?  Or maybe I just used too much of both?

50/50.  I donít go super heavy on the rub.   I like the meat to shine.  Also I think wrapping in butcher paper really preserves the flavor of the bark.   Foil makes it mushy and tones the flavor down.

That was a scary first pic but dang that's a beautiful cook!

I'm also in the salt and pepper camp. I don't need anything but a good piece of meat, salt, pepper, some lump, and a trusty Weber!
Beer! It's what's for dinner...
