looking at the Masterbuilt gravity charcoal grill/smoker

I have a 1050. Been a good grill so far. Tops out at 700. Get about 5-6 hours out of a full hopper smoking at 250.

You can see where the point was trimmed off if you are questioning in the future.

 Brisket is the hardest cook there is. I’d suggest 210f for 12-16hrs or until done. You want it to hit about 200f. The key is to not dry it out.

Flats are really tough to cook. Not much marbling so easy to dry out. I'd smoke it till 170 internal, pan it or wrap it with some beef broth and finish it around 200.

Trimming and leaving enough fat cap is key. Letting the fat tender over the meat and using very low and slow temp.

Agree, mine were always too dry so I started wrapping after 6-7 hours a while ago. I like a crisp bark though so I put them back on for the last hour. Hard to find the balance.

I just bought this flat yesterday.

Just turned the smoker on. Having my mom over for ribs.

Celebrating my son receiving his diploma on Thursday.

I've tried watching some videos on trimming brisket. Its tempting to trim way more than is necessary.

And sometimes its already trimmed thin when you buy.

Up at the lake Rigid, Ben nailed it. Not much for service up here.

There are certain two camps on time and temps for Brisket ....my best results ever resulted from a 20 hour cook and temps in the 210-215 range. That was a whole packer though so slightly different.

That sure looks good.

Did you marinate them? I've always found Costco meat doesn't have much natural flavor.

Thanks and no marinade…hit them with the garlic, salt, pepper mix and cranked the heat to get a nice crust and then finished them on medium heat.

We did a 10lb pork butt yesterday. It was very good. The sweet corn was delicious too!
