Smoked Brisket - 60# with pics.
Picked up 4 Prime briskets from Costco yesterday. Plan on eating one tonight and vacuum sealing the rest in 2# portions.

-Trimmed to 1/4” fat cap.
-Kosher Salt & Butchers course Pepper
-Smoker on Post Oak @ 250°

-Will wrap in pink butcher paper at 160-165°.
-Pull meat once temp probe slides in like butter
-This will be between 198-202°
-wrap in towel and throw in ice chest for 2 hours.

What kind of smoker will you be using? Firebox on my old Trailmaster is shot and I'm in the market for a new one. Dig those knives BTW, reminds me of working in kitchens.

Why’d you take the whole fat cap off

Get a box of butcher salt for briskets and big hunks of meat. It’s nice and chunky with herbs. I’ve used it for a few years and a box will last awhile.

I did not. The lean side I didn’t trim at all except for the rogue large pieces of fat. The pictures with the fat cap on them are the after trimming pics for the fatty side. I tend to under trim out of caution.

I see that company is based in Olathe. You in the KC area?

I suspect OP has his stuff together with this whole packer brisket. Great bullet step plan at the outset, a solid trim, and great equipment. He is gonna kill it.

I don't like rosemary in a beef rub, but to each their own.

What are the advantages to wrapping in butcher paper? This seems to be all the rage these days. Why not aluminum foil?

The paper still lets the meat "breathe" so you don't get the buildup of moisture that you would with foil, which in turn can soften your bark and/or make it come off.

So it has mild insulating properties?

re: Smoked Brisket - 60# with pics.
I failed TD by not taking after pictures. It was definitely my intent that was lost after 12 hours and an equal amount of beers later.

Tonight i'm vacuum sealing all of it and will take pictures of it sliced out of the fridge.

Such a wasted thread without the afters….
