My first brisket on my MAK
« Reply #-1 on: July 30, 2016, 02:38:32 PM »
I purchased a 16lb USDA Prime brisket from Costco.


After trimming it, I coated it with a rub consisting of onion powder, black pepper, garlic powder, brown sugar, paprika, and Kosher salt.


I loaded my MAK up with hickory pellets, set it to 225, and put the brisket on at 8:20pm.


16 hours later, at 12:20pm, I took it off and let it rest for 5 looooong minutes.  The juice just poured out while slicing.  The brisket turned out fantastic. 





I wish I could take the credit for the cook, but that would have to go to the Pellet Boss and my MAK 2 Star.

Um, did your equipment buy the brisket, trim it, rub it and put it on itself? Take credit where it is due!!!

That is a great looking brisket.

Sorry to hear about the juice pouring out. You need to rest the brisket for an hour or two, I do three. During the cooking process, juices are forced to the outer edges of the roast. The long rest allows the juices to redistribute back into the roast. This way when you do slice, the majority of the juices will remain instead of pouring out on the cutting pan.  :)

I wasn't complaining about the juices running out.  I know you need to rest it for a bit, but I couldn't wait.  Maybe next time I'll let it rest for at least an hour.  Regardless, it turned out amazing and the meat was still extremely juicy.  Even the wife liked it.

I got this method from a pitmaster when I took a BBQ in Chicago.  His business has a 4 hour class where he explains his cooks, gives a tour of his smokers, hands on stuff as well, and then you get eat a ton of meat.  It was an experience.

FTC stands for foil, towel, chest/cooler. When the brisket is hot off the smoker you can FTC the brisket to have it come up a few temps and stay hot for several hours until you are ready for it. FTC works on butts, ribs, roasts, etc...
