    Slow smoked a brisket last night for the first time. This summer I have smoked several boston butts, but this was my first brisket. It was select, which from what I have read is the worst cut, but boy did it come out tasty. I truly believe it’s all about the Low and the Slow!! I used charcoal (of course), Hickory wood chunks and I injected my packer with Tony’s garlic and herb seasoning. I used a local rub, and coated the packer generously (after trimming some of the fat). I took the point off right before it was done, cubed and sauced it…then put it back on for burnt ends. They were devoured before I could get pics…
    I cooked the Brisket for roughly 13 hours, at roughly 200-225 degrees. My smoker is old old. No thermometer, so I use one thermometer to guage surface heat, then a meat thermometer to guage when to pull the brisket from the smoker (180-190). Once I pulled the brisket, I wrapped in heavy duty foil, then again in a bath towel, then I placed it in an igloo ice chest. then I went and passed out for about 5 hours. Just got done eating, man, was it good! Hope you enjoy the pics, pm if you have any questions…

    Great looking brisket. Next you’ll have to cure one and smoke it for some homemade pastrami. :thumbup
