Pretty good Choice Brisket on the 22
« on: February 20, 2021, 07:20:19 PM »
Picked up a choice this morning, no primes to be found. Meat looked good though. Rubbed with simple SPG.  Cooked her Hot n Fast using cowboy lump, peach and apple chunks, and just used water for spritz. Rested only for an hour(I couldn't wait!) Then back on the smoker with the burnt ends. Still need to tweak the burnt ends I think, as far as additional rub/sauce/ temps a little. Any tips? Thanks!

Nice looking 22” wsm Brisket cook. About 90% of the briskets I smoke are done on my 18” or 22” WSM.

Very rarely do I make burnt ends. I enjoy eating the point, so I don’t have much input on making burnt ends.

What did your packer weigh?

Thanks for sharing.
Cheers

Hey Good morning AZ2FL. This was my first "Choice" Brisket and it weighed right at 15 pounds. I guess besides marbling? the choice designation was for some shiners on the fat cap where the butcher over did it? I was happy with it in the end though. The flat was fat enough that it didn't dry out. I was surprised that the flat didn't get to temp quicker than point, but maybe that's typical, I can't remember. I have only smoked 5 or 6 of these now, as it takes dedication a whole day.
I was a little disappointed that I didn't end up with more flat meat. Maybe that's got something to do with choice also? And there was much more point meat than I thought there'd be.  When I saw there were no primes, I almost just got a prime flat only, but I really wanted those burnt ends! Lol! It's just crazy what the restsurants charge for the burnt ends...but then again, it takes a lot of time making them, and making brisket in general.  I'll looking forward to the next one already! Thanks for the reply too.

Dude, those burnt ends look excellent to me. The flat does also.
