    24 Hour Brisket

    I am new to the forum, and wanted to share a recent cook that went on forever...For Fourth of July, I had purchased a SRF brisket that came in around 14 lbs.... Stayed at a friends house who has a large Masterbuilt Electric Grill with the glass front. I marinated the beast overnight, put on my rub a few hours before placing it on the smoker at 225 degrees at 8p.m. July 3rd...we stayed up until around 1, checked the temp, it was already at 155. This had me concerned that this brisket was cooking much faster than I had anticipated....I know, and have experienced the crutch, so I went ahead and wrapped it at around 160, lowered the temp to 215 since I didn't want to wake up to a completely cooked brisket. Checked it at 6a.m. had only risen 8 degrees, so bumped back up to 225 and let her roll. That brisket took another 12 hrs to get to 203. The rest time was shortened because at that time, we were all starving and salivating. The brisket was the best yet. Great smokey taste, tender, great bark. 24 hours is quite a long time to wait for that kind of perfection, but it was certainly worth it!

    Very cool. There's something magical about BBQ when it takes a lot longer. A lot of times I'll cook higher temp and faster, and it's always good, but when you let meat sit between 210-225, it always turns out best to me, though it can take forever.


      Welcome to the Pit Dongoloid!


        Welcome Aboard Dongoloid


          Thanks guys..still a newbie..love grilling on a Rec Tec I got recently,cooking Tuna Steaks right now,doing my first brisket in the Rec Tec tonight!


            Welcome and thanks for the support!!

            Enjoy that Rec-Tec.


              I've done one at 24 hrs. It cooked quicker than that, but due to unique scheduling I had to hold in my faux Cambro for 10-12hrs, going back & forth between that and the oven to keep the meat at 160-`170. It worked out really good from what I remember. I think cheaper cuts are well suited to that sort of thing. Glad your SRF (not cheap) brisket held up!

              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.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              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!

              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.

              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.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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’.
