Rec Tec Smoked Brisket - WOW 7/5/2022Brisket
11 lb. Choice Brisket from Kroger
3 T Kosmos Smoke House Reserve Blend and 1 Cup Tallow
Rub 7 Parts Black Pepper, 3 Parts Kosher Salt, 3 Parts Lawry’s, 1 Part Garlic Powder
Trim off hard fat and any silver skin. In a large steam pan, inject the brisket along the grain. Pat dry and then apply then apply a bit more tallow and the rub. Place uncovered in the in the refrigerator overnight.
pre-heated the smoker to 265 degrees and then placed the brisket in with the fat side down, inserted temp probe.
Set Smoke Alarm Thermometer to 165 degrees, Brisket hit 165 in three hours, removed from smoker.
Using two sheets of foil, I drizzled some tallow and then place the brisket fat side up. Created a foil boat and then placed it back on the smoker, with the temp probe.
Set Smoke Alarm Thermometer to 201, pulled brisket at 203.
*Notes: I normally only buy prime briskets, but the choice was on sale for $1.99 per lb.
I noticed that there was not much fat in the drip pan, but the brisket when I foiled wrapped looked really juicy.
Super juicy, total smoke time was 6 hours, left at room temp until it dropped to 190 degrees, then placed in the oven. When the brisket temp dropped to 180 degrees set oven at 170 degrees.
Rest time in the oven was 4 hours before slicing.
This turned out to be an amazing brisket and it was choice, looking forward to trying this next on my normal prime brisket from Costco.
