First Brisket - change of plans

Recommended Posts

A transmission rebuild on the truck changed our plans for going up north, so I hit Lunds looking for a brisket. They had a couple of flat cuts on clearance because they were old - 4lbs for $20 instead of the usual $32 full price. I got the smoker going around 9pm last night with some good smoke with a plan to go 225 all night. Around 11pm the storm blew in. It knocked my windbreak down and threatened to knock over the smoker! I quickly pulled out the brisket and threw my smoker in the garage. The brisket when into the crock pot and was at an IT of 208 at 5:45am. I'm keeping it on the "warm" setting until just before lunch! I guess you have to adjust some times!

way to go!!ya, that storm knocked out our power for 2 hours but then there's candles. i went to the super walmart in Fridley the other day to get some whole slabs of beef back ribs [2.18 lb.] and i noticed they had a whole brisket [i'm guessing around 12 pounds] for 2.59 lb. for future reference. had it in a vacume sealed bag. looked real good and i think i'll get one next time down there. good luck.

Yeah, this was Lunds of all places...not my usual place to shop but it was Choice. I didn't hit the store until 8pm and knew that my local butchers were already closed for the night, so it was either Lunds or whatever I could scrounge at a Rainbow/Cub.

I bought a nice length of 1x10 pine yesterday. Now I can fashion together a real windbreak that will sit around the exterior of my smoker. It should solve most of my problems!
