Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Yesterday, I pulled the first butt off the CG at 15.5 hours, double wrapped in foiled and a towel and put in the ice chest. At 17 hours, the probe slipped in and out rather easily in the brisket so I pulled and added a towel around the foil and put in the ice chest. The second butt came off at 18 hours and the two racks of baby backs came off at about 5:30 after about 6.5 hours. Sorry about the absence of pictures, we had guests over and I was focused on getting the food on the table.
I pulled one of the butts and added some home-made sauce. There was a good thick bark and a nice smoke ring. The ribs turned out nicely with a good smoke ring. The brisket was one of the juiciest and most tender that I've ever fixed. This time around, I decided to foil the brisket (never have before) after reading the e-mail from TexasBBQRub. After about 8 hours, I pulled the brisket, put it in foil and added about 1/2 can of Dr Pepper. I pulled it at about 200 degrees when the probe slid in and out easily. I allowed the brisket to rest for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours and it was absolutely wonderful. Guess I'll be doing the same thing more often
Had plenty of leftovers, so I broke out the Foodsaver and put quite a bit of the pulled pork, one rack of ribs, and some of the brisket in the freezer so we'll have plenty to enjoy in the future.
