Smoked the brisket in my drum overnight.
I'm not comfortable leaving an unattended smoker going through the night. Living in the middle of nowhere means if one spark happened to escape and take life.... acres and acres of land could burn before anyone would even see it to call for help.
I took as many precautions as I could...set the smoker on the cement patio, blocked it from any breeze that might arise.
I trimmed the brisket, sprinkled with Al's dry rub....
I smoked the brisket fat cap down in the drum to protect the underside of the meat from overcooking..
The next morning
The brisket turned out perfect. :)
The meat was so juicy and tender...
I loved Al's dry rub too!
I didn't sleep well that night from worrying about the cooker... but all turned out well. :)
Al, if you see this...Thanks again for the rub...it was great!
forgot to mention... I'm having fun adding my name to my photos. lol
