    Brisket / Burnt Ends

    First off love this forum, best ever!!! I'm cooking a 15 lb prime packer for a party this Saturday. My buddy is smoking 3 Tri-tips and an 8 lb pork butt so between the two of us there will be plenty of meat for the carnivores. I was thinking of making burnt ends for apps to tease the crowd so the question is......Should I separate the flat and point and cook separately or cook whole and separate when I wrap them? They will rest about three hours prior to slicing and I can finish the ends on his smoker so they are "Hot and Fresh" when I serve them. As always thanks in advance for the excellent support.

    I have cooked brisket and the burnt ends that friends raved about and no leftovers. I followed Malcolm Reed's video on youtube. Next, I intend to try Matt Pittman's brisket with burnt ends also on youtube.
    Oh no, the fails I've made in BBQ land are mixing up recipes, techniques, time and temp.

    You may want to consider making Pork Belly Burnt Ends as an appetizer. And for dessert bacon-wrapped Oreos.
    Happy Grilling to you and PBR too.

        Mr. Bones / bbqLuv thank you both for the direction. I'm going with the Q 39 route. If I understood the video correctly my 12 lb packer should cook in 8 to 10 hrs? I'll probably rest it in the cooler for about 2 to 3 hours. Hope it works out OK. I'll take some pics and try my best to post them.

      Welcome to The Pit.


        Welcome from TN. I normally don't separate the point and flat, but I may next time out. I like Mr. Bones approach.


          Helpful hints, thank you

          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 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.
