    Another brisket cook

    Brisket is quickly becoming one of my favorite barbecue meats... I have always tended towards pork with my 'cue, but as I keep using the PBC, I am finding myself wanting to do brisket more often. This was another brisket flat, about 5 lbs. I closed my intake vent on the PBC by a tiny amount, and found temps to hold really nicely around 280 throughout the cook. The brisket stalled in the 160s about 4 hours in, so I wrapped and put back on the grate. About an hour in half in the cooler once the meat hit around 200-204. For whatever reason, this was the best yet. You can't quite see from the pic, but it was crazy juicy. Not as incandescent as some previous smoke rings, but the flavor was there. Someday I want to try a whole packer, but these smallish flats are coming out so nice, and in time for dinner!

        No, just the BBBR. What's a Montreal rub? I love that town, curious what their signature rub would be... seems like it would include maple!

      Montreal Seasoning, from Wikipedia
      is a spice mix used to flavour steak and grilled meats that was based on the pickling dry-rub mix used in preparing Montreal smoked meat.[1]The smoked meat seasoning is derived from pickling mixes used in Eastern Europe or Romanian Jewish cuisine. The primary constituents of Montreal steak seasoning include garlic, coriander, black pepper, Cayenne pepper flakes, dill seed, and salt.[2][3] The spice mix recipe varies slightly among restaurants and manufacturers.

        That looks fabulous... and a nice thick flat to be sure. I'll bet that helped to keep it juicy indeed. Did you completely remove the fat cap? Or is it on the underside in photo 2??

          Didn't touch the cap... it was about the perfect thickness when I got it. And I love the cap... better than sauce! And yes, it is on the underside in the photo.

      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.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
