    Brisket flat is on.

    Trimmed, injected with beef broth and salted last night. Rubbed with BBBR this morning. I didn't oil first, as I've never had trouble getting rub to stick to anything, ever. On the BGE @ 225*. I'll wrap it @ 150*. Then it's done when it's done, 203-205*. It will be wrapped and cambro'd for at least an hour and hopefully two hours.

    And, oh--what a beautiful morning it is today!

    Yeah! Tear it up! Sounds like a great plan, especially if you can cambro for 2 hours!

    BTW, I have a similar cutting board to yours which I cut / trim all my uncooked meat on. Great board!

      Enjoy. I hope through the miracle of time there will be delicious brisket pictures to droll over later.

        Time is our perception of quantum uncertainty, expressed on a Newtonian scale.

        At least that's what I decided once long ago, while under the influence of self-medication. But if that is the case, then the very concept of time travel is non-sequitur. It would be like asking the flavor of a thought. You can't travel through time because it is not a medium, it is a perception that takes place in each individual mind.

        And I decided that I'm going to crutch not at a specific temperature, but at whatever temperature the stall occurs. The meat is @ 148*, with no bark formed at all. Some online research says that all cuts are different, and the stall can come anywhere from a low of 150* to a high of 170*, with most around 160-165*.

        My full brisket timing. I start every cook 20 hours before my planned serving time.

        I don't smoke just flats, just full packers. I never wrap. I don't change the cooking temperature. I just wait the stall out. I cook at 225 for the entire cook. I think this gives me the best taste and a perfect bark.

        My goal is to reach 203/205 in 16 to 18 hours. Then wrap it and put it in the cambro.

        This is just my method. It works for me. I'd much rather it spend more time in the cambro than me being pressed for time. There's nothing worse than your quest's arriving early or late and your brisket is not done cooking yet!

      I got it as part of a set of 3, L/M/S. I love being able to put them in the dishwasher. Be careful you don't get them too close to the burner though!

        That is a pre-formed lip to fit over the edge of the table to prevent sliding.

        I clamp mine down with two of the blue and yellow soft clamps.

        Wow! Just saw that lip. I just use wet paper towels beneath that board and the big acrylic ( for vegetables ).

        I don't think the mfg's of my boards recommend DW, tho.

      Stall came about 162*, 11:15 or so. I wrapped and now 2 hours later we're at 197*.

        3:30, and it is @ 203*! I tightened up the wrap (there was slight leakage), wrapped it in a towel and it's into the cooler for 2 hours. Sides are going to be Crack 'n Cheese, corn on the cob, and since heirloom tomatoes are in full season, Caprese tomatoes.

          I brought leftovers to work, and everyone was well pleased. My only variation to the Full Meathead was a suggestion by fzxdoc, she processed the Texas Mop Sauce with an immersion blender to smooth it out. I did that, and I liked the result.

          In every respect, this was a good cook.

            I'm glad that immersion blender tip worked out for you, Mosca. Your brisket looks delicious.

            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.
