    I'm cooking for forty people tomorrow, and I'm committed to following the Lebowski method 100% for the first time. I'm tired of getting inconsistent results.

    In the last month or so I've cooked for 40 plus people three times. I did briskets and chicken thighs. The chicken thighs I use DDD's method. Always turns out great. I think I've zeroed in on a really simple and tasty brisket. I get the prime briskets from Costco, I slather in a very thin layer of Better than Beef Bouillon and then put the rub on top of that. Lately because of time I've used Black Ops instead of just making my own. I smoke until 190 and then pull off and put in a deep roasting pan and cover. Put that in the oven at 170 for about 4 hours or so. About an hour before I want to eat, I pour about a cup of warm water on the brisket and recover and put back in the oven. After removing the brisket front the pan, I pour all the juice into one of those fat separating gizmos. I slice the brisket and then paint each slice with the separated juices. It has turned out great every time.

    I do, too. I pour the drippings from my pork shoulders into the separator and use that as my finishing sauce. Similar to what you're doing here. It works great.

    Went well. Great smoke ring and flavor. Burnt ends were fantastic.

    How does the Dude's methodology differ from what you've done in the past?

    I usually leavet it on the smoke for longer before wrapping. I was convinced wrapping at 4-5 hours would leave it with no bark. I was wrong (even though it took a leap of faith when I wrapped and the bark was not very dark). Adding broth during the wrap. Again, I was convinced this was going to dilute the smoky flavor, and again I was wrong.

    JL,

    Do you leave the brisket covered or uncovered on the counter as you are letting it rest for 30-60 minutes?

    Interested...

    Before slicing? Either way. Uncovered will cool a little faster.

    I'm not JL, but I've always thought one of the purposes of resting was for the meat to reabsorb some of the juices, so I keep it wrapped. Maybe I'm wrong. At this point it doesn't matter, because I'm burned out and renting my trailer to a caterer for the summer. I'm sick of cooking.

    We may have sold our trailer...

    Between the economic downturn, me going back to school, and shoulder surgery for DT, we just didn't have the time for it anymore.

    Did one more round of briskets before sending the smoker away. Friends asked me to cook for their son's graduation/mission farewell party today, and it gave me a chance to teach the new cooks how to run the smoker.

Honestly, though, I've smoked enough that I don't really have any desire to smoke or eat bbq anytime in the near future.

    It happens. I was in the same boat. I literally didn't touch the smoker for about a year. When a hobby becomes a job it sucks the fun out of it.

    Any ideas on how to smoke more briskets at the same time without buying a bigger smoker? I've been asked to cook for a party that will be 350 adults. There will be pork and chicken also but they want me to do brisket. I've only cooked 3 at the same time before and frankly, it was the worst brisket I've ever done. Some of you are witnesses. Anyone ever try something like a rib rack but for briskets? I figure I'll need to do 9 16 pound briskets to feed .3 pounds of meat to 350 people. I just can't see how that would be possible with a normal pellet smoker.

    I'll be in town. I can smoke a couple and then foil them. Let me know.

    Anyone else doing brisket for the game this week? It's been a while for me - I'll have to refresh my memory on the appropriate steps.

    That seems like two separate steps. (I'm helping)
