Nice brisket. Hey Mike, were you the one that sent me the "Hell Hath No Fury" sauce? I finally opened the bottle, and love the smoky heat. It has only been open about a week and is almost gone!

Yup, that was from me, John ;) Glad you're enjoying it, bud! I still have a little bit of that sauce left in my fridge. That one is a SCORCHER!!! One of the hottest sauces I've ever made. Judy's 7 Pot Lava are no freakin' joke :flamethrower:

Actually, that was the very first label I ever made!

You better check that temp again, 12 hours and only 150 doesn't seem right.
 
It looks killer!!!

I'm telling you, man, I must've checked it 20 times and the probes weren't lying ;) I wish I took a side profile pic of that brisket because, at its "tallest" point, it had to be close to 6" tall :shocked:

16 hours in (at noon), it was still only at 165*, so I wrapped it in foil w/ some apple juice. At 3pm (19 hours), it's was only at 172*. I wanted it to "rest" for at least an hour, in a cooler, wrapped in blankets/towels, and I had guests coming over at 4:30. Long story short, at 3:30pm, I ended up throwing it in the oven at 400* (covered) to finish it. I didn't want to, but I wanted it done before kickoff so I could relax and watch the game.

I kinda rushed this thing, although I didn't really want to. I ended up taking the point off the flat, for burnt ends, BEFORE I wrapped it to rest in the cooler. In hindsight, that was probably a mistake, because some spots ended up a little dry. The majority of it was nice and juicy though, and the burnt ends were off the hook :party:

Finally pulled it out of the oven when the internal temp hit 192*

Cut the point off the flat and wrapped the flat

Cubed up the point

Tossed the cubes in sauce and threw them back on the smoker, while the flat was resting. These came out freakin' slammin. Literally melted in your mouth

You can see where the top 1/2-3/4" dried out a bit, but it was still really tasty. Thankfully, it wasn't dry all the way through the slices. The fat cap on the bottom prevented it from drying all the way out

The juicy parts were really juicy though

Thanks for looking, everybody!

This vid is for Mike or any other Jarhead who may stumble into this thread. Could only stop briefly on my way to get someone. Tried to zoom in on the Air Station sign, but no luck. It reads "The Noise You Hear is The Sound of Freedom."

Made a couple of tasty racks of ribs last night with some of Rajun Gardener's Rib Rub :party:
One rack with the "mild" rub, for my kids. The other with the spicy rub, with 7 Pot Primo flakes in it. Man, that sheeeeyit was good! Nice kick to it, but definitely not overpowering. Awesome balance of savory and heat! My boys loved the milder rub too

I think it's safe to say that you can stop "fine tuning" this rub recipe, RG ;) It's fantastic the way it is right now.
Thanks again, brother! PPATB :cheers:
