    Super Bowl Pit Barrel Brisket

    Here's the brisket I did for the Big Game. This was a full packer, starting at ~11.5lbs, Black Angus Choice from Sam's Club.

    1) ~24 hrs prior, trim brisket, removing fat cap down to ¼" or less, including any hard fat. Remove most of the fat layer between the point.
    2) ~24 hrs prior, inject the brisket with beef broth throughout. Salt the brisket lightly. Refrigerate.
    3) 9pm day prior: pull brisket and apply BBBR w/Cumin added
    4) 7:30am light Pit Barrel, hang brisket. Hooked as described in Pit Barrel video
    5) 12:30p, check brisket, pull at 160 for wrapping
    6) Crutched brisket cooks to 200-203 across the surface. Pull at 2pm.
    7) Brisket put into 170° oven for ~1.5 hours to rest
    8) Cut and serve at ~4pm

    End product was very good. Moist, good flavor, great reviews from family and friends.

    Thanks AmazingRibs.com

    One day I'm gonna get a full packer that is higher than a run of the mill Choice. Good going !


      Very nice! What do you think of the BBBR with Cumin?

        Cumin is an excellent add to BBBR. Recommended.


          Well done David, looks like some really good brisket


            Nice job David. That smoke ring looks like a pink marker! I bet that was a happy and full crowd for SB.

            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 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.

            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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
