A Bit on Brisket
First of all, thanks to all of you that wondered about the newborn. She and my wife are both doing well.
Anyway, onto the point of this post. My goal this year is to perfect a brisket. Please keep in mind that my smoking is done in the privacy of my backyard using a Brinkmann Gourmet
smoker. I have turned out quite a few lovely pork butts on the smoker and I feel it's time to master something else.
I tried a brisket last year and it turned out okay. I used most of it in my BBQ beans because it wasn't as tender as I had hoped to eat by itself. (Very nice addition to my beans, however.)
So here are my questions:
1) Where do a buy a nice brisket? (Preferably smaller since I'm not feeding the masses with it.)
2) How long should I cook the brisket on the smoker? (I think the one that I did last year was on for six or seven hours, which wasn't long enough.)
3) Are there any other tricks that would help a beginner in the brisket quest? (I'm not asking for secret sauces or what not, but just some tips on how I can make this tender and amazing for my family.)
Any help would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.
If a cow ever got the chance, he'd eat you and everyone you care about!
