    When do I inject my brisket, before or after dry brining?

        Inject with a salty solution the night before. Don't dry brine, you'll add too much salt.

          What Jerod said, especially with Butcher's BBQ Brisket Injection, which is quite salty but delicious.

          That said, if I use my own low-sodium homemade beef broth, I dry brine overnight then inject not long before putting it in the smoker.

            Murdy , I use homemade beef broth to which I have added some of Butcher's BBQ phosphate, which is their secret moisture-retaining ingredient. It's in their Brisket and also in their Prime Brisket Injection/Marinades. But because those marinades both contain so much salt, I prefer to add the phosphate myself to my own beef broth. Here's the link to the phosphate alone: https://www.butcherbbq.com/product-page/bbq-phosphate

            Kathryn,
            How much phosphate do you add?
            Thanks for the insight

            LibertyJayHawk , I mix 1/4 cup Butcher's BBQ phosphate to 2 cups beef broth. I seldom use the whole 2 cups though. Usually a cup or a little more is plenty.

          fzxdoc Thanks, I'll check out that phosphate stuff. I'm supposed to reduce salt for medical reasons.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          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 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.
