Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

I am hell bent to get this thing done. What completely frustrates me is that I'm getting farther away every time I do the thing. There are so many videos of people that whip it out and get it right. So frustrating.

Bigwheel: Honestly, you kidding me? I'm serious when I say these things are surfboards. I spent 90 minutes reviewing YouTube on American briskets and most of them are only points. The 15 pounders I bring home are absolute beasts.

Even so, if I bought a point from my butcher, it's still cut. Not like any brisket I bought is actually sealed at any end.

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

Its actually real easy just like Nick said. Make it hump up in a an inverted "U" shape which would put the top of the U up inside of the lid. Scoot the sides in so you can get the lid on it. It doesnt seem to hurt it a bit to touch the sides of the lid. It will soon shrink up enough to fit the grate.

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

I'm just saying it still won't fit.

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

Well have you tried it? Maybe those WSMs have funny lids. Is it torpedo shaped? You might have to break down and buy an ECB. They got big deep dome shaped lids.

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

Are you serious? What part of "I have a WSM 18" is confusing? You said you put full 17 pound briskets in them all the time. Try to stay with the thread, ok?

I've done many briskets and none of these would ever fit into a single layer of the WSM. Have you read a single thing I've said here? Did you actually see the video I posted?

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

In this thread. I wasn't finishing any concrete, and I'm not Italian. My day job is a lot more than finishing concrete.

A lot more than finishing concrete? That would make you a shit stirrer, asshole! And for what it's worth, it's the Portuguese who finish concrete, not the Italians! Once a frog, always a frog!

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

Actually, it was in reference to the guy who was actually doing the concrete. Remember you saying something about my day job? You got your answer to your shit disturbing question. And with the largest population of Italians outside of Italy, Toronto certainly demonstrates Italians and concrete. Frogs are the French.

Re: Shoe Leather Brisket

Personally I wouldn't have cut it. I would think a smaller piece of meat will dry out faster. When I have a big boy brisket like that, I use the handles on the top rack to hold both ends so the brisket is kind of bent up in the middle. As it cooks it will shrink and fit nicely on the top rack of your WSM. I usually cook my briskets on the smoker at 225 then pull it off at 190, foil, and let it sit in a cooler for an hour or more then slice. That's just how I do it and there are people on this board who know way more then me with a boatload of experience. Just my 02 cents. Thanks for listening
