    Everyone enjoyed the brisket,

    except me. IMO, it was dry. Sides we're good.

    Thanks everyone for the help!

      We're always our own worst critics. Taste it again tomorrow and see what you think.

      Welcome to the club. You're now an Experienced Brisket Cook. Congratulations.

      That looks good from here. Like everyone else said, we are our own worst critics.

      Ratherfly Looks great! Glad it turned out so well and your guests all enjoyed it. Hopefully, you kept notes on how you cooked it and times, temps, etc. so you can repeat.

      The reason for this holiday get-together was to get the family together as a wish for my husband's aunt who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. May have added a tad to my stress level. Know what? She was absolutely thrilled. Mission accomplished. I will try the leftovers today, not that there were that many.

      I think my next new recipe to me will be pork belly. Off to research!

        Glad you made this get-together special for her!

        Two things to do with pork belly, or at least the two things I do:

        1. Bacon!
        2. Pork belly burnt ends - always a hit.

        Congrats! I have yet to try my first brisket, so I have enjoyed this thread very much. Very sorry to hear about your husband's aunt's diagnosis, and you did a WONDERFUL thing to make that meal in her honor! Good for you.

          Thanks, everyone. I'm leaning towards burnt ends. I'm doing a prime rib for Christmas, debating if I should smoke it or do it in the oven. At this point, I'm planning on the oven unless I"m convinced otherwise.

            Use the smoker to save space for sides in the oven...

            We're sticking with the oven, I'm not yet ready for prime (rib) time to do the holiday meal (started my "pit" career only last July), and my lovely bride, Queen of the Kitchen that she is, crushes this meal. I'll practice a couple of times between now and next year, and maybe give it a go then in the smoker

              That's my fear. I *know* how to do it in the oven and am concerned about messing up a holiday meal. (Plus it's predicted to be raining here on Saturday. Not interested in going outside and getting wet on Christmas.

            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.

            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.
