Butts and Brisket

Picked up some meat from the local grocery store yesterday, they were having a good sale. Gotta 6lb butt and the biggest brisket they had (4lbs)!
Rubbed the butt down with my buddy Tim Handy's "Southern Q" BBQ Seasoning, of the Award Winning "JT's BBQ Competition Cook Team". Then I rubbed the brisket down with the last of my supply of Wolfe Rub Bold! I need to get more!! Cooking over KF and hickory and monitoring the temps in the meat and the cooker with my Maverick ET-73 Remote Smoker Thermometers. These things are great, I've got the alarms set for the meat and the cooker, so I can relax inside until the meat is ready to come off the cooker!!

Looks like you are having some quality down time today Larry.

Do you plan on leaving those mavericks stuck to your smoker the whole time ?

Do you think it will get to hot at some point to leave them there ?

Yep they'll be there the whole time Cliff. They'll be fine, I have the one resting on top of the one with the clip that comes with the Mavericks, because I lost the other clip.

Funny you should say that Link. I ain't never had a brisket cook like this one. I put the meat on around 7am, the butts at 170* and the brisket is only at 154*!!! Stubborn!!!

Must be the damn thermometers slowing it down. Maybe the rub was to old?

Most of the briskets I've cooked have taken 2 hours a pound. I'm usually at 225 degrees. Lately I've increased the temp. to 250. I still very new at the brisket. My wife has said she really doesn't care for brisket. I still have a few in the freezer. Hang in there.
