How to BBQ Beef Brisket Part 2

Last time, I showed you what brisket smoked with the fat cap trimmed looks like. For your enlightenment, here are some pictures of brisket smoked sans trimming. Warning: the following may cause sudden hunger and damage to keyboards via drool. Please don’t attempt to bite your monitor.

Here she is after 18 hours

To prepare this brisket, I took it out of the packaging, rubbed it, and smoked it for 18 hours with hickory and apple wood. The fat cap was left intact; no trimming whatsoever.

Cut that meat! Cut that meat!

At this point, nothing out of the ordinary.


This is where it starts to get interesting. Notice the juices running down on the right side. Oh, this is just the beginning.

So juicy!

At this point, I started to drool uncontrollably, my knees became weak, and camera shake became an issue.

Fat cap!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh yeah!

Make sure you click the above image to see it full-sized. It’s worth your while.

My life is brilliant...

My love is pure...

I saw an angel...

You're beautiful...

You're beautiful...

It's true!

Mmmmmmmmmmore brisket


After all that, you likely fall into two camps: those whose cholesterol level increased by looking at the photos and those who need a cigarette. Depending on which camp you fall in, trim accordingly.

Happy BBQing! 🙂

      I love that picture too! You can almost taste how moist the meat is. Almost.

    You’re killing me. I have two and a half hours til lunch and even then, I’m not going to find anything as good as that to eat.

      My apologies. But if it makes you feel any better, there’s no good BBQ around me either.

    Could you do these BBQ posts AFTER lunch so I don’t feel unsatisfied toward my lunch before I even eat it? Thanks! :-p

    Wow. I didn’t think I needed further proof that I’m just not that into meat. Well, here it is. Those pics did absolutely nothing for me. I did appreciate that the meat was moist (very cool how the juice was just oozing down the meat), but had no craving for it. After you were moved to song and reading the other comments, I think there may be something seriously wrong with me!!!!! I liked looking at your nice hand more than the meat. LOL!

      haha~ there’s nothing wrong with you, Veronica. My wife tells me all the time that I have a problem. Thankfully, marriage is a binding covenant. 😛 But I love your blog because I need to eat more veggies during the week so your recipes definitely help.

    Alright, here’s the deal.

    I am not a vegetarian.

    But this is a pornographic meat post.

    I do get off on meat of this sort.

    You are a freak, sir.

    I do like freaks.

      If loving food porn makes me a freak, then I am guilty as charged
