Your Best Smoked Brisket Recipe

Hey guys I want to smoke a brisket this weekend and never have.

All I have for a grill is the standard sized Weber Charcoal Kettle. I have smoked ribs on it, turkey breasts and all good.

I know brisket is a Texas thing but I want to smoke one this weekend and was hoping you had some ideas.

Been watching the videos on YouTube but don't really know which one to go with and I don't want to ruin a 30.00 brisket.

I know it needs low and slow but not sure how many hours and how to maintain a low temp.

Want to hear your methods.

Definitely want to have some good burnt ends.
I once turned an entire brisket - flat and point - into a massive pile of burnt ends. It was delicious.

Pretty sure I took a couple years of my life off, but those are the crappy years anyway.

EDIT: FMB is way ahead of me, that would probably work if you have a water pan.
I have plenty of Weber aluminum throw away water pans.

I have a gas grill so the Weber is only for smoking.

I'm just trying to figure out how to build a 225 deg fire and how to check the temp to be accurate???

Use the minion method for your charcoal.

You can get a probe thermometer and stick the probes all the way through a potato to keep it off the grill grate.

Ive never tried to keep temp that low on my kettle. Im sure it can be done with a water pan and a small amount of fuel like others have suggested though. As far as checking the temp, you need something like this: http://www.amazon.com/River-Country-..._3563990011_11

Just use an alligator clip or something and stick it in one of your top vents.

I use a probe. You lose a ton of heat every time you open the grill. I think I read somewhere you need to add 30 minutes to your cook time every time you open that lid. So I try to do it as little as possible.

I have a probe that I use for the oven that I can use.

It's not wireless but doesn't matter the cord is meant to hang out of an oven or grill or whatever.

You need a probe to keep tabs on the meat temp, but you'll also need a grill thermometer to keep tabs on your grill heat.

If other boards were like this one the world would be a better place.

Too many people are uptight and PC drives me ****ing nuts.

You can have fun on this board unlike others.

I just use a dry rub then keep it going at 225-250 for anywhere from 12-16 hours. I cheat w/ a wireless meat probe and temp probe (for grill temp) that has alarms so I can sleep in peace and not worry about the temp getting too high or low.

No doubt. You have to be beyond a complete ****tard to even be in conversation to be banned from here. Not like the Minge where they get butthurt over anything bashing their precious Donks.

I went to Pappa's BBQ last night and bought a pound of brisket with some burnt ends.

Drank a pint of Jack D got ****ed up and ate the whole damn pound.

It was delicious but hell it cost me 15.00/lb.

Screw that I want to do my own now. Plus the smell when it's cooking...

They don't have burnt ends on the menu down here do they have it on the menu up there in KC?
