Cold brisket cook

Well, I tried to wait for a warmer day to cook these monsters but it never happened.

I started prepping at 6:30 this morning and I'll take them off whenever they're done. I'll slice and shrink wrap them tomorrow for winter eats.

Right now they're humming along at 240°F

Temperature -4°C




A couple of big ones, all I could find when I was in Buffalo a couple of weeks ago.




Ready for the WSM



I'll try and update throughout the day, we're supposed to get 10cm of snow today as well. Joy!

Smoking big briskets is more fun than smoking little ones anyway.

It's about 25°F.

11:30 update, I haven't peeked yet, but it's started to snow. The WSM is holding steady at 240°F.

I am never doing such big pieces of meat when it's this cold out.

I lost some heat around 6 and it took a while to recover, and I just threw on more coal and the temp dropped to 170.

The briskets are at 157 and have been since 6:30.

I should have saved this and entered the Frozen Few!
