For the yearly family reunion I normally serve pulled pork as my contribution. Since I have a freezer full of pork and time was running short I bought a 9 1/2 pound brisket at Sam's. I trimmed 1 pound of fat according to the virtual packer brisket in the archives. Coated the brisket with Dr. BBQ's Barbecue Schmear (using his Sweeter Big-Time Barbecue Rub) Smoked in my 009 for 11 hours to an internal of 183 (I had to leave for the Mariners game). Placed to rest in a foil covered hotel pan until I got back (They beat Toronto 7-4 and 2 out of 3) and refrigerated overnight. In the morning I sliced it with the grain in about bun width strips, then across the grain, and will freeze until reunion time. At the reunion I will reheat in a plastic bag in boiling water and serve. After slicing I had 4 3/4 pounds of sliced brisket (50 percent yield from cryovac weight, 58 percent yield from trimmed weight).
