Haven't smoked anything in several weeks so with mamma going out of town I decided to get cozy with my grill again.

 

I thawed out a Butt that I had picked up when they were on sale for $0.99/lb.   Got a wild hair idea to smoke a small brisket under it to let the pork fat keep the brisket moist.    Also got a wild hair to make up a rub with coffee in it.   Turned out great so I figured I would share.

 

Brisket rub:

1 part ground black pepper

1 part onion powder

1 part garlic salt

2 parts espresso ground coffee

Covered it well...  (file to large to add ???)

 

Placed the pork butt on the top rack over the brisket.   I have started cutting slices in my butts and shoulders when I smoke them to get more rub and smoke into the meat.  Probably can't see it but my deflector plate was covered in fat juice.

Pulled the brisket, rested it and dug into it.   The flavor was amazing...   Give this rub a try!

My grill was so satisfied, she left me a wet spot on the patio...

On another note...

While I was at Publix picking up a brisket, I saw a pork belly roll (had never seen) so I picked up one of those along with some beef ribs to do the same thing; pork belly over the beef ribs.    Ate those last night and they were delicious.

While I was chowing on the ribs I put the pork belly on the Joetisserie to crackle it up a little bit.  Skin turned out very good but I should have smoked the belly longer to render more of the fat out.

About to pull the butt off to let it rest and then pull it before the football game tonight.    

 

Thanks for looking and have a great rest of your weekend!

Ha! Nice rub and cook!

 

My wife does not eat meat, so I do the same thing. When she is gone for a few days I get out the Pit Boss and cook me some meat! Just did a brisket that was fantastic. Magic Dust and Apple wood for smoke. Hmmmm....

 

I have heard of the coffee in a rub but have not tried it. Next rub for sure!

 

Think it will do well on beef?

Hell yeah its good on beef. If you can find a tri tip. It goes really well with some ciabatta bread with just mayo for sammies

wow. and I thought I've been busy.  Great looking cooks.  what size army are you feeding? just you?

just the 3 of us...  me, myself and I.  :)  

 

Now I don't have to worry about cooking my lunches/dinners for the next few days.   The rest I will bag and freeze for when the urge hits and I don't have time to smoke.

      Soon I'm going to smoke a 12lb. brisket on my Big Joe using my new
      FireBoard
      . I plan on cooking overnight. Would I need to wrap, or just let it go for 12 hours or more?

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I’m looking for any tips on how to cook a full packer brisket on my KJ Classic 2.  To date I have only smoked brisket twice; one time each of the Point & the Flat.  After seeing them in person at Costco it doesn’t look like it will fit on my KJ.  How do you make it work?
       
       I am not sure if I posted this question in the correct thread.
       
      Take Care,
      Pablo

      Cooking my first brisket on the KJ Classic 2 and had a lot of trouble with thick white smoke. My process below, if anybody can help me find the mistake it would be much appreciated!
       
      - Loaded KJ with Jealous Devil lump charcoal and mix ~5-7 oak log chunks of medium (?) size. Logs were highly likely kiln dried but I did get them in firewood-like logs from a meat market vs the mass distro grocery store/home improvement bags
      - Used Royal Oak starters and got the lump lit for about 15 minutes, then a couple of the oak chunks caught and I got a decent fire.
      - Closed the top but opened the vent fully to try to let it smoke out and carbonize. Temp jumped pretty quickly to about 350 so I choked it back and got it stable around 260 but the thick white smoke continued for a solid 45+ minutes at which point I had no choice but to start the meat
      - White smoke continued for another hour+ after this, albeit it didnt billow out quite as aggressively. This went on for a couple of hours at least which seemed like an excessively long time.
       
      Thoughts? Advice?
      Thanks!

      So I am smoking my first brisket on my Kamado Joe Classic II and pretty well following Johns Brisket 101 video from the Kamado Joe YouTube channel. It has been on about 4 hours at 225 degrees and my dome temp was steady until it started to rise about 30 min ago. It stopped about 250 degrees and seems to be holding steady there now. Any advice on why this happened and if it’s okay? Should I try to lower it? If so, what is the best method. Getting good blueish smoke and have been for most of the cook. Any help would be appreciated.

      This weekend I'm attempting my first dual-cook, a pork shoulder/butt and a brisket flat.  I have a KJ Classic and an Akorn Jr, so I could do the pork on the Junior and brisket on the classic and not worry about it.  But for the sake of only using one grill for two things that cook generally the same in terms of temp (also admittedly, I just kinda want to try it), I'm planning to use the extender rack on the KJ, put the butt on that then add the flat under it a few hours later as I'm anticipating less time for the flat than the butt (Never done just a flat, only packers, but I think the flats take less time?).  
       
      Has anyone ever done this?  My only concern is the butt dripping fat all over the brisket, not sure if that will change the flavor or get it all greasy and it's a big no-no?  Or will it not mess with the flat at all and if anything make it better from dripping fat all over it and keeping it from drying out?
       
      Thanks!
