Brisket On The @WeberGrills Kettle Using The Snake Method

What I learned in this cook was that no matter what, you have to be patient and wait for the brisket to be probe tender.

This Brisket reached 204 degrees internal but wasn’t probe tender, enetered a stall, temps retreated even with steady 250 degree pit temps all the way from 204 back down to 189.  It wasn’t probe tender until it came back up to 195F.

Patience and understanding the stall paid off.  DSC07510DSC07512DSC07513

Next place a Weber lighter cube at the left hand start of the snake (or fuse) and get the left most coals going.  Place come apple wood along the top and cherry wood chips sprinkled along the path of the snake.

Place the foil under the grill grate and on top of the charcoal grate for an easy clean up. Once covered grill temps hit 200 degrees close the bottom vent so the handle is about one inch from being completely closed. Cover and don’t peek for about three hours when we will mop them for the first time.
