Beef brisket this afternoon!

It's been slow cooking on the smoker all day.
Man it looks great!!

I would post a picture, but, well,
Y'all already know my excuse.


Jeff, I need a quick cliff notes version of temps, and prep if you get any time. Not sure if you still have my #. PM me if you get a min!

Dang photobucket too...cant see pics
Sounds really good. Would have loved to see how it turned out. Looks a little grey though (jk)

I would also be very interested in your approach if you are willing to share.

I have thought about getting a brisket and stuffing it and wrapping it up and slow cooking in the smoker, so i am really curious if you don't mind.
Thanks T!

After I got it all trimmed up it was 6 pounds.
I marinated it (refrigerated) for 36 hours in a 2-gallon Zip-lock bag in this:

6 Tbsp Olive oil
3 Tbsp Soy sauce
3 Tsp Montreal steak seasoning, and
3 Tsp Espresso ground coffee (I use Cafe Bustelo)

I put it on the Egg at 8:30 am at about 240 degrees. After 5 hours I opened up the lid and sprayed it down with apple juice. After another 3 hours (and a couple more generous applications of apple juice) the point end hit 195 degrees so I pulled it off the grill, wrapped it in foil, and let it rest about an hour and a half.
I let the grill temp creep up the last 3 hours, so it finished at about 285 grill temp.
It got about 6 chunks of wet hickory on the charcoal at the start and that made a pretty good smoke for about an hour.

Any questions, just ask!

Yep, has to be simple for me to do it.

Just don't get hung up on internal temp. When it's done it'll have a nice soft feel when you insert the thermometer-just like a Boston Butt.

I hate to add insult to injury, but I've got a big rack of St. Louis spare ribs on right now.
