            You will do better each time you do one. I was scared to death when I did my first one.

              JakeT Here she is sliced. I once again forgot to take a picture of the whole thing. It was good, not glistening wet, and a tad dry on the flat end. If I could change something, I think I'm going to make sure to foil as soon as the crutch hits to preserve that moisture. I'm fairly certain trying to ride my way out of the crutch is what kept it from being sopping wet.

                That does look great! I know the feeling about the flat - my last one, I did the same, only wrapped because it was taking so long. The point was juicy and tender, the flat was just a teensy-tiny bit dry. Leftovers were definitely dry - there was no leftover point, lol.

                I think I'm going to do my next packer sous vide, smoking on front end, at least, maybe on back end, as well. We'll see.

                Congrats on the great brisket, that's a home run for a first time!

                  • Lake Charles, LA
                  • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
                    1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
                    2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
                    3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
                    4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
                    5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
                    6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
                    7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
                    8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
                    9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
                    10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
                    11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
                    12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
                    12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

                    Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

                    I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
                    I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

                  Dude!!! Brisket #1 a success! Love it. Keep 'em coming! By your 10th you'll feel like an old hand at it.

                  #1,000 is fun, too!

                    both of the briskets in this thread look really good! I wish I could remember my first one. It was way before I found A.R.and the pit and I'm pretty sure I did not knock it out of the park! lol

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill
                      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.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      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.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      kareubequ bbq 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.

                      masterbuilt gas smoker
                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                      Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
