    1st Brisket

    Well got my 13lb prime from Costco tonight. Going to hit it with some Killer Hogs TX rub and set the Grills Silverback to about 250, and send her off to bed for about 12hrs ish. This is my plan Sat night. I have Kosmos Q Mop but I think I will keep it simple on my first one and just let her go. Any other tips? Not doing burnt ends, going to package most up for spring break and bring it with, we'll what we don't eat on Sunday.
    Thanks

    12 hours is not always correct. Less or more. Who knows. 250° is a good temp. 225-275.
    Do you plan on wrapping? I wrap with pink butcher paper when the bark looks good to keep it from burning. I tried foil once. Foil ruins the bark. Go to at least 195 inside temp. 200 probably better. The feel is more important. Probe tender. Place wrapped in a cooler for at least 1 hour before carving.

      I have no problem with wrapping in foil, but do not wrap until temp at least 180. Bark stays good and renders nice juices to pour back over sliced brisket.

    Oh and maybe use course salt and pepper the night before.

      Yeah I have butcher paper and I might wrap when she his 160ish. Forgot about that, good call. After it hits 203 ish, I will wrap in paper if it isn't, also in plastic wrap, in a towel in a cooler. Seen Kosmo do the and I've done it with a but, works great.

      SP night before might be in the cards too. Thx

        I did the plastic like Kosmo did on his videos - turned my bark into goo. Like sticky black goo, tarry, almost. I won't do that again.

      Brisket is really simple to smoke. But it is easier said than done. I like to review youtube streamers.

        Good luck on your cook. Please remember temp and time do not dictate when your brisket will be done. Probe tender baby Probe tender!!

            How exciting! Can’t wait to see it. Can’t cook a second one until you cook the first one! Enjoy the process!

              I don't know about plastic wrap. It would be like wrapping in foil and steaming your bark.

                I was going to make the same comment but apparently he's used plastic wrap with success before.

              If you have a separate leave in food temp probe with plans for an overnight cook, I would use it with an alarm. I have found that Prime tends to cook to temp "faster" than Choice/Select cuts of meat. The last full packer prime that I cooked from Costco was a 16lb that we cooked @225 on a pellet cooker that was temp, probe, and slice tender at 10hrs, which allowed us to let it rest for an extra couple of hours. As always, your mileage may vary....

                +1 prime usually has a shorter time to finish for me as well.

                    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 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.

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
