Impromptu Brisket

Post by aussieant32 » Sun May 24, 2015 2:15 pm

So I wake up next to my lovely wife at around 8am this morning..

"What's the chance of you doing brisket today?"

Was in the car by 8:30 on the way to Vic's Meat Market.

They had a lovey bit of Rangers Velley was around 6kg so he whipped it in half for me.

I think she now approves of my bbq's...

If that happened to me I'd go for a morning cuddle first, but I'd only be 5 minutes behind you. :wink:

Good luck with the brisket. Must do one here soon.

Ha. It's looking nice. Wasn't going to wrap but it's starting to get a little colour, might wrap her up shortly

Rangers Valley is just up the road from me (between Armidale and Glen Innes). Used to shoot goats and deer on the neighbouring property.

Great country!!!!
Unfortunately no one stocks their meat in Armidale - all heads to the Big Smoke or Japan.

Wonder if any of the farms would sell you some direct?

It's cooked pretty quick. Been in for 4 hours, sitting at 199f and probing all over like butter. Was thinking 6 hours minimum but I guess when it's ready it's ready. Taking it to 203f then rest in the esky for an hour or 2

Only if you want it mooing and angry :)

They are processed offsite. At one stage they used the Bindaree Abbatoir at Inverell but don't know where they use now.

As for me. I've got 25 acres so we buy a few grass eater steers and keep them until around 18 months then get a home kill butcher to process them and split them up through the family. Haven't done it for a few years as grass eaters are so damn dear through the drought. Plus the arthritis doesn't help when managing steers.

But back to the brisket. It's one thing I haven't done yet. Make sure we see pictures.

Settled around 230f. Noticed on another bbq group a few people saying their briskets were cooking fast at the moment. Basically there was no stall, mine was the same. No one really has an answer, people saying its to do with the humidity etc but no real evidence. Guess I will find out soon. With a stall it would have been the right time, well the time I expected anyway

Few photos:

How it was trimmed by the butcher, did a bit more myself, rubbed a thin slather of Louisiana hot sauce on then just that standard salt and pepper

As she came out, wrapped at around 170f, off the cooker at 203f (forgot to take pics mid cook)
Image

Customary 'bend' test
Image

Very happy with the result, could have used a bit more smoke, really my first time using peach so wanted to go light as I didn't know the strength. Love how versatile the Kamado is, beef ribs last weekend running about 280f. Pizzas Friday sitting around 400 and the brisket today at 225f all afternoon. Can do anything on it. I was aiming for 225f pit temp but it just wanted to sit at 230-235f so I just let it be. Shut it down at around 6pm and its still sitting at around 150f 4 hours later.
