Winter Brisket Cook

Here are a couple of pictures from my brisket cook yesterday. It turned out pretty well with a very nice smoke ring. It was moist throughout, but sliced clean and easy.

Weekend Pork Butt and Brisket

I started cooking some pork butts and a brisket today. I've got two boneless 5 lb. butts and a 14 lb. brisket on the smoker. Here's a picture from 6 a.m. when I was kicking everything off.

Currently everything is humming along just fine. The smoker is pegged at 230 degrees.

We've had 90 something inches of snow so far this year and a month with temps in the lower single digits. This weekend we're close to 35 degrees for highs, but it's still cold enough that cooking all day requires an insulated smoker.

Once I get it up to temp it maintains cooking temps very well.

Brisket Prices

I stopped by the local butcher today to purchase a whole brisket for a cook this weekend. I got sticker shock!

I think back to the good old days when I used to purchase a 13 - 14 lb. briskets for $32-$33. I purchased a 14 lb. brisket today for $71.
