    I'm doing a brisket today, and I think I used a tad too much black pepper in the rub. I'm about 164* into the process, and I'm spritzing with apple juice/bourbon mixture. The bark looks good and the whole cook is going well, but I'm concerned about the pepper. I'm planning on pulling/chopping it and into a container for the fridge (It's being made for my boss) What can I do to cut it going forward? I thought maybe a mop with some sort of sugar towards the end. Maybe just remove some of the bark from the finished product? HELP??

    hmmmmmm.......that put me in a hard spot.......no such word as too much cbp in my vocabulary........

    you mite, after pulling off.......before slicing and dicing and pulling......cut a slice off and check it out.......then if it is.....you can scrap off bout half.....and mix the rest of the bark into the meat

    i don't get much of a barq, after i foil, and it sits for 4 hours in the cooler....till supper time comes around

    Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking. Once I pull it, I'll have a better idea. I might just be real light with the bark I include in the mix.

    He'll love it. And like was mentioned slice off the top and bottom, reserve, and put the rest in the pile. Send me the reserve.

    Wipe it off and be done with it. He can use the ketchup to cover it up if he wants.

    You know Rich, some people just just like the taste of good meat and prefer to cover it up with al kinds of stuff.
