    Pellet smokers

    New to smoking and have a pellet smoker. Trying the clubs smoked beef brisket recipe. Does anyone use a pellet smoker?

    There are many of us here. Is this your first cook? Pulled pork is very forgiving for a first cook. Just be sure to follow the instructions and pull when you get up to temp then rest the brisket. Wrap or no your choice. Enjoy.
    Take pictures.

      I do briskets exclusively in the pellet pooper. They tend to become meteorites in my smokers if not wrapped (I don't like to wrap) and are often a little over-smoked for my tastes. They come out great and my family and friends rave about them.

      However, I do pork in my smokers because I do enjoy the smokiness and added bark.

        I’m sure you’ll get several replies & recommendations before long. Quite a few people here have them.

        The only one I’ve used is my father’s Traeger. It cooks quite well...but lacks the smoke profile that I prefer.
        That was easily remedied by adding an A-Maze-N tube into the cooking chamber. Now getting that deeper smokiness is a breeze. So that would be my recommendation...but only if YOU find it needs a little “smoke lift.”

          Welcome to the Pit! I see you found your way here. I do not have a pellet cooker.

            I always cook my briskets in my pellet and they are well received. I personally think you get a nice balance of flavor between meat and smoke.

                Those are some empty shelves you got there. Where's all of the clutter? I would expect waaay more clutter from a guy named Lazy Layne.

                Welcome new guy. Although there are a lot of guys who could go into much detail on how to prepare a brisket on a pellet smoker, I'd advise doing some research on your own as well. Up at the top of the page is a search box. You'll notice a down arrow indicating a pull down menu. The last selection on that menu is Advanced Search. In Advanced Search, type in the key words box words like "pellet" and "brisket". When I did it returned 100 posts with that name combination. Some may be helpful, others not.

                Good luck in your search and with that brisket !!

                  All I can say is I watched Aaron Franklin's PBS show yesterday on brisket and he makes one most excellent point - only change one thing at a time. That probably applies to all BBQ, but is really important when trying to tune in tricky expensive pieces of meat.

                  I only cook 2-3 briskets a year, so I'm still learning the art. I cook mine on pellet grills. Biggest thing for me was actually when I started wrapping in butcher paper (when the brisket hits about 160 degrees). It really seems to help with consistency.

                  ...and Welcome to the Pit!

                    Welcome to the pit. Haven't done a brisket on a pellet, so I got nothing except welcome.
