Brisket

Posted on Tuesday, May 21st, 2019 at 4:25 pm

Brisket just started cooking, rubbed. (I can smell the rub on my right hand.) I figure 6 hours at 250°F. 4-10pm.


Myka is not feeling good, hiding in the front room, turns her nose up at gravy. It looks to be digestive, as she was in the litter box earlier, to no avail. She purrs when I pet her, but otherwise makes no attempt to move around, except once to hide in the closet. I’m hoping it passes quickly.


Light rain today, bringing cooler temps (60s, low 70s), which is why the brisket is being cooked today. No sense in doing it in the heat.


Heat is being dampened for about 4 hours by the passing rain (light, barely wet things down), plenty of downdraft ahead of it to chill things down. Wind will turn around from the south around dark, and we’ll be back to normal again.


Tender, juicy, and yummy.
