    Brisket - Creekstone Farms Franklin Style

    Started out with a brisket from Creekstone Farms at 15 lbs. Seasoned with just salt and pepper as Franklin's book says. Put on the MAK at 275°F as measured by a temperature probe put on the upper rack where the brisket went. Spritzed with liquid every so often to keep surface wet.



    After approximately 7 hours, ready to wrap in butcher paper:



    Beans on, brisket still getting tender:



    After brisket pulled (11.5 hours total cook time), beans covered, and mac n cheese on:



    Brisket rested and ready to slice:



    Plate of sliced brisket:



    very tender:



    Ready to slice the point:



    All plated up with beans and mac n cheese:



    Best brisket I have cooked. Thanks for looking!

    That's gorgeous!

    Did I miss what the total cooking time was?

    You didn’t miss it. I forgot to add. It has been awhile, but it was 10-11 hours total cook time prior to rest. But, you have to cook to feel not time. But that should give you a good idea of brisket weight vs time.

    If the 15lbs was sticker weight, what was the trimmed weight?

    I don’t measure weight, but I would bet I trimmed at least 2 lbs.
