    SRF Wagyu Brisket #2

    I wasn't very happy with the 1st SRF Wagyu brisket cook so I'm going to do another around 3am in the morning. This one isn't as big as the first. This one weigh in at 12.7 lbs after trimming maybe 9 1/2-10 lbs. I will be doing the S&P rub and I will be firing up the Lil Monster feeding it with Hickory logs. Here it is trim and covered with S&P. I have the Budlite icing down and the XM satellite radio plug in so I'm going to get about 4 hrs of shut eye and will report back in the morning.

      Got mine at Sam's club. It is a quarter mile roll so plenty of other things! I roll out a few feet for the kids to color on.

      Spinaker Lol. I have to be here whether I'm busy busy busy or there's crickets chirping in the halls, cuz I'm an emergency worker. So when there's crickets, I do whatever I want until I get paged away. Usually it's Pit, AR, ABC, sometime Netflix or YouTube (in no particular order).

      LOL!! After the initial fire do you feed the little monster with just one log about every hour?

      Ernest it's more like every 45 mins I will feed Lil Monster a log sometimes two. It depends on how windy it is.

      OOPS! I just notice that the fat cap was down so I went and flip it so the fat cap is on top now. Glad that I caught that.

        Dang it is hotter than a well diggers a$$ on fire. I've been holding off on poping the top of a cold one but if the outside temp keeps rising I will have no choice.

          The brisket hit 180 IT @ 11:15am so I got the pink butcher out and roll the brisket in it (Aaron Franklin sure makes this look easy). You can see where the towel slip and took off a little of the bark. Glad it was on the fat cap side. Click image for larger version

                Careful you don't overcook. Wagyu often doesn't need to go to 203F. Probe her and see if she's done. A 2 hour rest will do her a lot of good too.

                  Pit Boss we're not going to eat until 5:30 so how can I keep it warm for that long? If I wrap it up with towels and put it in a cooler can I reheat in oven if it cools down to soon? Another learning point,

                  It might not be done yet... Probe to be sure. It will likely be done before 203F though and the rest time will just help it get more tender. If you use a good cooler and wrap with a LOT of towels it'll keep the heat until dinner. I think you're timing is actually pretty good.

                We are all anxiously waiting!
