Those who like pics,rainy,128.6% humidity- PBC brisket time

Postby jerodpb » Sat Dec 21, 2013 11:15 am

Couple choice packers, been wet aging for a few weeks in the little fridge. Been easy to keep temp 34-36 degrees. 11.64 and 11.49 are their weights. Both appear to be left chested (Point curving towards the right). One has a fair amount of fat in the flat, not too common in these here parts.

First time using the Jaccard today....They are firming up in the freezer right now...more to come....

Did a few things different this round. Trimmed less off the fat cap (kept a solid 1/8-1/4"). Used less rub. Packed it on a little too much last round. Still good, but the ends got kinda hot and gave a new meaning to BURNT ends, even though I didn't make burnt ends per se.

Need to get a much darker bark then what I have been getting. Looking back, I have not been getting close enough to the burnt meteorite look.

I did clean out the fat vein b/n the two muscles some but not as extensive as I have in the past.

The Jaccard don't play. Lotta holes with that dude. :cheers:

Letting the briskets come up to room temp before I install hooks and hang them bad boys.....church Christmas party tomorrow. Going to rest them overnight then reheat tomorrow....

So are you hanging them to smoke? That's the step I don't get :dont:
Thank You to all the fine folks here for all the tips and advice so I can now smoke a chunk of meat and folks actually eat it.

technically it is a cooker...... www.pitbarrelcooker.com

you can add wood, but the barbque flavor is so overwhelming, you can't tell what wood you put in :shock:

Hanging works best since it does not disrupt the heat flow.....after they get along good, I'm going to put on the grate and eventually wrap in BP

I use a charcoal chimney for my offset smoker and kettle, however, the lighter fluid method is too easy and works too well with this PBC. Load the basket, cover the charcoal in fluid, light, let burn for 15-20 minutes. Load meat....close lid.

Briskets "hooked up".....One through the point and flat, other through the flat and hooks up to the first hook.

Tis POURING down!!! Coals were well lit at 15 minutes. I heaped up the charcoal a little on the side of the basket that the briskets wouldn't be hanging over. You want to keep the rebar in even if you are not hanging anything on it when you close the lid to cook. It helps regulate the air flow and prevent the cooker from overheating. You can then remove (if possible) to jack up the heat if things cool off a little more than expected. I plan to use magnets when I cook ham and sheep and whatever else I won't be hanging.

Got tired of running the Maverick probes so I installed a bi-metal in the lid, got it closer to the side as to not interfere with any hanging meat. Only a 2" probe.

Once this thing settles down, it will STAY for hours....it is just under 275 right now.

Holy Moly!! The humidity was so high in the cooker (2 briskets + 128.6% humidity + a 30 gal. drum, do the math), they didn't stall for any significant amount of time. I wrapped in BP right at the end just for the sake of locking in some moisture.....

Got a good, dark, black bark....yahoooooo!!! They are in foil in the Cambro
