    Latest problem, errr, opportunity to excel

    I just pulled out my 14.3# prime SRF left side brisket to thaw. It is my Memorial Day weekend endeavor.

    Much to my surprise, I laid it on my grill, and it will fit. This beauty is only about the third brisket I have ever done, and it deserves to be done perfectly.

    Of course I have been through MH’s discussion of briskets, but I remain concerned about the difference in thickness from one end to the other.

    Anybody want to chime in with tried and true advice before I embark on this one?

    The thick end is fatty and ignore it during the cook. DO NOT poke it and check for tenderness. DO NOT temp it. Just pay attention to the flat (the thickest area of the thinner end) and starting checking for probe tenderness around 190 internal.

    I highly recommend cooking it before you serve it to friends.

    Try lighting the pit, helps with cooking a lot.

    But seriously, rotate it periodically during the cook to even out the heat exposure on all sides. Good luck and post pics!

    Remove the cryovac before cooking, unless it is a cook-in-the bag brisket. Bag-O-Brisket.

      Or you can separate the flat and the point and cook them separately. Here's a good brisket video from the founder of Dizzy Pig:

        Put the hooks in the fat end before hanging in the PBC.

          Your grill looks a little cold, you might want to light it.
          Also, I think the cryovac is a new way to wrap to power through the stall... I don't think it will be better than pink butcher paper or foil, but ya never know.

          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!

          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’.

          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.

          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.

          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.
