    My first brisket

    I’m very excited for my first brisket! From the beginning was difficult get this cut because in Spain isn’t common, so I had to ask as many butchers as I could. Finally when I got it I couldn’t believe it.

    I only use salt and pepper in my dry rub and started in 275 with charcoal and wood sticks. I opened the lid 3 hours later to spritz the brisket and temperature, I repeat this every 30 minutes.

    From the fifth hour of cooking began the stall, the temperature raised up just 10 degrees in three hours, so I pumped up the temperature until 300.

    When the brisket temperature was in 170 I wrapped up and cooked for 4 hours more. Then i put to rest for an hour.

    The result was amazing, the tenderness was pretty good and moisture too, flavor could be better, but I’m very glad to be the first brisket that I’ve made.

        lots of probes.

      That's a great looking brisket. Next time add about 1teaspoon of salt per kilo the day before you want to cook it. Then rub with pepper bofore cooking (and adding some garlic powder and onion powder to the rub might help the flavor too).

      Congratulations, that is a fine looking brisket! Maybe take a sample of it to the butcher who was able to get you the cut, and show him what can be done with it. Might be easier to get another one next time!
