today i decided to smoke a 15lb brisket on the BBQ , first time for this on the grill , I prepped the meat last night did the secret recipe rub ( not really ) let it sit overnight covered in the fridge and placed it on the BBQ at 225 Degrees at 08:00 AM with apple wood chunks for the smoke , which is smelling outstanding at present , lets hope I do this correctly.
I've been watching youtube vids on the subject for 2 days now , it always sound more difficult that what it is , you know the common sense thing, its all logical ( I love the smell of smoke on the BBQ. MMMMM.....

Did ya take out a loan to buy the brisket? :cool: Last one I cooked took about 15 hours to be just right. I wrap mine and let them sit for a while after I take them out of the smoker. Sniff sniff I can almost smell it right now....obligatory photos please...lol.

3 hrs in apple chunks on left smoke box on right , smells outstanding !, notice tin foil on upper rack forces the smoke to cirulate before venting!

actually when these are on sale they are really inexpensive , I estimate about 3-5 meals from one in our family so even a larger 20 lb one for 60.00 is cheap

And to think, brisket used to be considered “junk” meat fit only for pet food. Until they figured out that it could be cooked slowly to break up the collagens.
Back in the 1980's, when Fajitas started getting really popular (and pricey) around here, a guy I knew, who was in the restaurant business, was very amused at how people would pay "premium" for Fajitas in a restaurant. He said Fajita meat (beef) was generally considered "trash", and barely worth the effort to make palatable.
Times change. ;)

I'm going to have to try that!

I have a similar grill and smoker box.

The tin foil trick is cool, I'll have to remember that one.

Nice thread man!

I smoked salmon for our Thanksgiving dinner last year.
It came out fantastic!

Once you get past the first time smoked meal, the rest is easy peezy!

I want to try smoking cheese next, oh and bacon!

I had a little chief smoker at one time and did a candied salmon (brown sugar , rock salt, pepper, and some times chili flakes, brine ) then after leaving it in the fridge over night to draw out the moisture and a quick wash then , a lesser brine ( with the chilis added if i wanted a tang) and in to the smoker for about 5 smokes , when i got the first piece in to the house , I had to throw into the kitchen really fast and run like hell , to go get the rest , the ghouls would attack it while I went for rest of it, a horrific sight, very frightening!
i burned that little chief out a few times I had made a 3/4 inch plywood box to put the smoker in , that had a door on it that retained the smoke longer there was a 2 inch gap at the bottom of the door for venting.

I love smoked salmon and or trout , one really neautifull fish to smoke is brook trout ( really a member of the char family , slimy but OMG soooooo good.)

on monday I have a new grease pan comming and 4 new enamel ventury covers slightly larger than the ones for the BBQ 16.5" 1nstead of 16" as the present covers tend to slip ( thats why the pan appears on an angle ) < BBQ season is upon us lads and chefettes, post your reations!
