    Porter Road Brisket Cook

    Adding pics: I had a couple of prep pictures and a friend over for dinner took the one where I've cut into the brisket and am holding it.

    I purchased a couple of whole brisket from porter road a few weeks ago during their sale and I smoked a 10.5 pound one yesterday. Sorry, no pictures. A nine hour cook in my PBC using A DigiQ from BBQ Guru's ti keep temps at 275. I wrapped in pink butcher paper with some beef tallow spread on it (ala Jeremy Yoder from Mad Scientist Barbecue) when temps reached 170-185. This was after about 7 hours of cook time. Pulled at 9 hours exactly, temps from 203-212 (Accidentally let it go a little longer than I wanted to).I rewrapped with butcher paper and tallow as before, wrapped in foil, a towel, and then into my faux camber. Rested for four hours. Serving temp was 155. The point was incredibly moist and melted in your mouth like butter. The flat was a little dry in a couple of spots, but family thought it was great. I have another Porter Road brisket in the freezer. Am experimenting with ordering brisket on-line to see how they compare with the prime briskets I can get at Costco. Creekstone Farms in in the list. I may be able to get some through a friend 'wholesale'. Will keep you posted.

    I am a Porter Road fan, so glad you had a good experience. Never got the brisket, going to have to try it. I have also bought ribs from Creekstone, much better than Costco, but not as good as Porter Road IMO


      Sorry, no pictures.

        Pics added. One from a friend and the other two were pre pics. :-)

      Although a bit more expensive, I also recommend the A Bar N Ranch up Dallas way. Their American Wagyu briskets are fantastic. Got a 15# one on the way as I write this (https://www.abarnmeats.com/).

      Also, I saw the Jeremy Yoder and Harry Soo videos on adding tallow to the paper. Always looking for an edge. I don't think there's much to that but if it psychologically convinces you than go for it. I've even gone to the trouble of injecting it into the flat. Just made a greasy mess.

      Glad you enjoyed the PR brisket though, they are good.

        Adding tallow to the wrap lent to a more moist (maybe perceived) surface without compromising the bark.

        Saw them also two, too. Render the trimmed fat and mop and add to wrap.
        Jeremy's video nailed it.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
