I’m not sure it needed all that slicing

Me neither but that's how the butcher prepared it. It was rather juicy and succulent.

Collected a brisket from the butcher.

Image

Image

Dry brined over night and then rubbed it.
Loaded the SnS with briquettes, couple of hickory chunks and hot water.
Dialled in 230f.
10pm put the brisket in.

Image

Checked at 6am.
9am reloaded with more fuel and water.
Hit 160f internal and wrapped in foil.
4.30pm hit 203f internal, took off and into the esky.
Rested for two hours then sliced and ate.

Looked good and tasted good, just a lot drier than I was expecting. I should add that this was my first brisket.
Since moving to Aus from the UK I've noticed in general Aussies are very anti fat, sausages are too dry and so are the burgers. I'm happy enough making my own burgers but growing a cow will be tricky :lol:

Is it possible to have too lean a brisket? Too healthy a cow?


Going to make chili tomorrow so all is not lost ;)

Nah, it doesn't usually have a lot of fat on the outside but it should have plenty of marbling. That's why it's so good for slow cooking, it bastes itself.

I’m sure it tasted great and all but that’s some effort!

Good point; I've definitely had brisket with fat in like that. Not exactly marbled though, more like big lumps.

I did a 2.5kg chicken in the Weber yesterday for a family party along with the usual sausages and burgers but the chicken was superb! Really juicy.

Turns out that I had only half the brisket.

Image

I had the flat. So no fat layer to baste from above. Every day is a school day.

Still, the chili is excellent!

I found this on Facebook Marketplace and thought it looked cute so collected it Sat morning.

Image



Being a newby to the country I don't recognise the brand:

Image


I popped into Bunnings and picked up some gas and parts to "refresh" it and then spent an enjoyable afternoon taking it to bits.

Image

New ignitor

Image


New regulator and hose

Image


And assorted stainless bolts/washers/nuts to replace the ones I had drilled out.

The burner unit is pretty bad:

Image


However it still managed to knock out some decent wings for dinner :D

Sunday is Rib Day.

I you get the chance, go see the Rib Man in Brick Lane on Sunday - https://theribman.co.uk/

As that's a bit far to go nowadays I've been working on my own.

Put some colour on the ribs using my (new to me) gassser.

Image

Image

Then stacked, wrapped and into the charcoal Weber for the rest of the day.

Unwrapped and de-boned.

Image

Image

Image


Served up in a roll with coleslaw, mac & cheese and hot sauce.

Image

And it's German week in Aldi so a biiiig beer to wash it down.

2. You can't raise or lower the grill with a Weber, you set up zones for direct and indirect cooking.
This is the only bugbear I have with Weber’s...

The answer is a Landmann with the Coal rack that can adjusted...

My wife and kids bought a lovely beef rib joint for me for father's Day but my father in-law has just turned and wants to cut it in half and chuck it in the oven 🙄
