Starting the Resurrection Sunday Brisket- a 17lber from Costco. This one sort of made up for the lack of fat on my first Costco brisket. Threw a lot more of this one away. Still though, I think a have a good pre-cook 15lbs or so...




Saw these at Costco- couldn't resist... gotta try 'em.




And... my old standby, go to sausage... lol what a bad pic- it's Michael Kiolbasa from San Antone'




Where I come from, these qualify as sides... lol

So, this was the fattiest brisket I have cooked by far. I trimmed perhaps a good 1 1/2lbs of fat. After cutting, I probably could have trimmed another 1 1/2lbs. Even the thickness of the fat on the fat side tricked me. Had more depth than I could perceive. And the fat ran throughout the inside of the brisket like I have never seen before.




That hard fat on the upper left, i normally carve out. In this pic, I had already removed quite a bit. The photo doesn't show the depth that i cut into it. Even still, that fat ran almost as thick to the other side- never seen that...




Final product. Went on at `8:30pm, came off at 9:10am. Wrapped in butcher paper and made a makeshift Cambro: placed in aluminum pan, put two towels underneath the pan, two on top; placed it all inside two large paper bags to help retain the heat.


Rested until 1pm. Went faster than it could be sliced. Half was gone before I could grab my camera for the pic.

Look like most or all the fat render out. Nice cook 


skreef, the overall tenderness and taste was spot on. And the fat did render well but, beginning at that next slice, the entire right side is fat almost from top to bottom. There that thick white fat was too much to render out. Normally of course, there is a seam of fat that runs between the flat and point. This was magnified by several degrees. 


No no one complained. Lol

Good looking one. I suspect we go to the same Costco in Deerfield. Did you have fire issues with all the fat? I'm sure it was juicy as all get out


I do but one this one occasion, I happened to be closer to Springdale so I got it there. Lol

oh, and not a single issue with fire this time. I made sure the deflectors were clean! And, the pan now sits in the grates  instead of the deflector plates.  The briskets it's on the home made extender grate

      I have really enjoyed smoking ribs and pulled pork and now would like to try smoking brisket.
      The Costco, BJs and Sams Club near me (northern New Jersey) do not have brisket. All I find is a few butchers that sell it for $14+ per pound which seems obscene.
      Anyone in NJ have any ideas on where to buy?

      1kg back ribs from my local butcher, cooked using a modified 3-2-1 method over charcoal and cherry wood. And finished with a Bulleit bourbon glaze.
      Really pleased with how these came out, not fall of the bone but tender and juicy just how I like them!

      I have a question for the community about fire construction and how much charcoal I should be using when I set up a cook. I have a KJ Classic III and have been using the SloRoller for all of my low and slow cooks.
      On some of my larger cooks (one pork butt, a full brisket, and then two boneless pork shoulders) I have burned through all of my fuel before the cook was done. I filled the standard KJ ash basket with charcoal and then light it up with one KJ firestarter. I was smoking everything at around 250F and followed the heating method described by SmokingDad BBQ on his YouTube channel (it worked well!).
      Does anyone have an image of what their charcoal looks like when setting up for a 10lb brisket or pork butt?

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

      Hello There!
      Texan, currently living in Seattle, finally got a backyard to do some grilling in this summer!
      I'm currently grilling on a Weber performer, while I restore a Big Joe that I got off fb marketplace.  I have a thread in the DIY section with some photos if anyone is interested or has some good recommendations.  
      Can't wait to get cooking on the Kamado once it is up and running.  Most looking forward to cooking some pizzas and of course brisket, being a Texan!
