A little psa here. Independent Grocer has whole briskets points on sale for $3.00lb ($40-$45) and trimmed pieces packaged up for $4 lb. ($22 range) Meat manager said he can hardly keep it on the shelves, considering it's way cheaper than burger even. He had to put one aside for himself to smoke.

So I'm leaning towards doing them up in a brine with a #1 cure, so basically a corned beef and then smoke it. From what I'm seeing the prague powder isn't necessary but then it isn't considered corned beef and won't have that red colour and different flavour.  Smokingmeatforums.com is a good place to wander around, check out post #27 in this thread.  https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/to-brine-or-not-to-brine-a-brisket.89757/page-2

Thanks Doug

Since I have been off and started this baking stuff, I have yet to buy a loaf of bread,a bag of buns for hot dogs,sausages or burgers.

No frills had hot dog and burger buns on for $1.99 . Those dinky things . I still turned my head and said nope, not going to do it. I can make a batch of 12 reg buns or 6 mama or 4 mando buns with just 3 cups of flour,1 cup of water with yeast and one egg. Yes of course,salt and sugar added and a oz of olive oil .  Put in a zip lock bag, it,s fresh for 4-5 days . Left overs go to croutons .

What I have learned through trial and error and patience . Many say I did not bake the bread I gave them . I said back,who is open to make this ? LOL

 

Yes,I am proud of myself.  Still trying to find, bread flour.

All true, and especially PATIENCE.  I am not patient enough to be a baker, except for the real easy stuff!
