Good luck brother. I have rocked about 10 to 12 with my Rec Tec in the last year or so.  Love that thing.


Report back with pics tomorrow

Smoking it?  Salt and pepper only.  Keep the temp at 225.  Keep a water pan in there to help keep the moisture up.  Wrap in butcher or parchment paper at the stall.  Use prime briskets for best results.  I'm sure you know all this, just some key pointers.

  Good luck.  Post pics when done.

I’ve heard mixed reviews with putting a water pan in a pellet grill. A lot of people say it’s not needed so I’m not too sure. Got the butcher paper on deck!

Thanks man! Can you specify the nasty hunk you’re talking about? Trimming is a damn art project I swear lol

Yeah - i have started cutting out as much of the hard deckle fat between the point and flat as possible.  I try to get the point to lay as flat as possible.



Also OP - if you are gonna rub that nice-looking brisket and let it sit overnight, make sure there is no salt in the rub.

I’m going to throw the rub on about 30 minutes before it hits the grill. Good pointer though on the no salt for overnight rubs. I remember reading that somewhere

LIke that drunk mexican above said, don't over-think it.  Just keep an eye on the temp (super easy with the bluetooth and app on your phone), and you will come out like a champ

You don't have to trim as much as he does but remove all the deckle

I just checked.

It is a Kenmore microwave, probably 1100 watts.

I used Great Value hot dog buns ($0.88 for 8 buns), and Great Value mustard ($1.00 for 16 ounces).

The best brisket I've cooked so far I hardly trimmed at all.  I cut out a good chunk of the deckle but not all of it.


I'm convinced the actual brisket you get is 90% of the fight.
