That brisket looks bloody good, Karl’s takes some beating though especially with stews secret recipe sauce from the social, I want to see one of delboys legendary barb-b-q sessions ( as long as I can’t hear tears for fears in the background!)

That’s a helluva smoke ring you got on that brisket Steve 👍🏻

Looks bloody superb😊

Got the Keg fired up this afternoon for some skirt fajitas 😉
I’ve only been doing chicken (rotisserie, beer can, smoked boneless thighs) and home made burgers so far this lockdown.

I might do a pork butt this week though 😉

Tried the bbq/smoke snake method the other week cooking brisket. The bark was lush but meat was a bit dry. It was my 1st go so will learn. Going to try again on Saturday .

Go for it, did you wrap the brisket half way through and continued till hitting internal temp.
If the brisket isn’t big enough or thick enough it can dry out easily, wrapping it can help with this.

Get yourself a decent meat injector and inject cold coffee. :wink:

I usually smoke for 4-5hrs (depending on size) then wrap in tin foil till about 10deg from final temp, then unwrap again till cooked.

Wrap again in tin foil and leave to rest for at least 2hrs in a cool box :wink:
You won’t get better brisket :cool:

Didn’t inject the brisket, cooked to 165f wrap in grease proof then up to 200f rest 1hr in cool box. Think problem was meat was too close to coals.
Had another go yesterday , did whole chicken and was fantastic , also pork shoulder which was tasty but could have done touch longer as it didn’t pull away as easy, flavour was great. Put some ham on for rest of week sarnies and that’s came out well.

Might get an injector if brisket is dry next weeek.
Great to sit back and let it smoke while watching cricket on tv.

I find the snake method creates too much smoke because there’s always coals smouldering which then leads to dryness and a bitter taste

One from weekend , brisket , whole chicken , chicken thighs and ham.

Gave brisket too long, think had probe in fat so temp reading was low, I’ll get there only second attempt. Plenty of flavour in the meat.
