Saturday brisket

Postby castironchris » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:12 am

Threw a brisket on for the Longhorn game Saturday night. First one I had done on the Pit Barrel and one of the best I have ever done for sure!!!

Looks really nice Chris. Proper bark, nice smoke ring, plenty moist and the fat rendered out. What more could you ask for. :happ: :happ: :happ:

Looks great. :salut:

Was it a flat or packer?
Just wondering as burnt ends from the point always are a big hit.

He probably used Kingsford charcoal. That is what I use on my pit barrel. Makes a dang nice brisket in about 7 hours. Way faster than the Pellet Cooker. Looks dang good!

That knife is a wonderful thang! Also a great conversation piece because a lot of my crowd haven't seen a knife design like that. Slices beautifully!!

It wasn't labeled as either but I think it was a packer but I buy them from a meat market called Granzin's in New Braunfels. They are trimmed and vaccum sealed with marinade already. Hard to screw them up but I have before. They always seem to run about 8-10 lbs. There was a point on there but not a lot so does that make it a packer??? I did separate it and make a few burnt ends the next day that were delicious!!

Thanks and I agree about the score but the Horns played a whole lot better than I was expecting and it was a great game!

Thanks WV and just like bobcat said I did use Kingsford Mesquite charcoal. It ain't no joke that this cooker is a whole lot quicker about getting things done!

If only 8-10 lbs, probably just the flat. Full packers are usually 12-14, sometimes larger.
The point is a large piece of meat with grain running in a different direction than the flat.

I get cryovac "Prime" packers from Costco. Good cuts of meat.
They don't come marinaded though.

Hey castironchris, try the pit barrel recipe on chicken. You'll love it. Makes me want to break it out this weekend and cook some yard bird. :texas:

I guess what I was trying to say is the fat layer that runs between the two muscles was there and there was point muscle above the fat layer but it was pretty small. Maybe no bigger than my fist. Not sure if that one was just trimmed weird or not. I know very little about brisket but will ask next time I go in there and see what they tell me.

Misunderstood... After a few times of :banghead:, I'll get it. :D
