Father’s Day Briskets

Recommended Posts

I’ve really been fortunate of late. I found a brisket on clearance @ RD for about $2 per all told and these two when they’re $5 and up @ both Rd and Costco. 


Going to bed with temps unfortunately fluctuating. I’ll hash it out in the am.

oops, thought i hit submit on that @4am. anyway, just woke up and must have been cooking in the 290’s or better. Both ready to pull. And the cardboard Is A Thing with me from now on. Resting before the hold so the temp drops considerably.

 Cook on cardboard: The bottom of a packer brisket is lean meat from the flat and it sometimes becomes burned or tough during the 15 hours it takes to smoke a brisket. Hometown’s Billy Durney has an ingenious solution: he cooks the briskets on rectangles of cardboard (perforated with a knife beforehand to allow the smoke to reach the meat). “This keeps the bottoms from drying it, and it also facilitates moving the briskets from smoker to warming box.

What’s the deal with the cardboard, @CentralTexBBQ?


It is to protect the flat and bottom of brisket but no concern about 15 hours.  A 15hr cook equals at least five hours I could have spent doing something else.


Anyway, it originated on brick pits where they were cooking directly over coals. I am adopting it because i tend to cook fairly large briskets and even though both of these were smaller, they nevertheless were extremely long and very close to overhanging the grill grate.
