Went to a poker party about three weeks ago, took a pan full of pulled pork and a bottle of Jeff's BBQ sauce. Walked around since then with my chest puffed out from all the super compliments I got from the pork. Missed the poker party last weekend. Found out today that someone brought brisket. The comment was something like this, "Ken, your pork was good, but this brisket beat your socks off!" Talk about a major deflation of ego! Having never smoked a brisket, I'm now thinking I need to. Any opinions on what is better, or is it a matter of preference? I think they just enjoyed what was in front of them at the time, but up till today I considered myself the king of the BBQ pit for my poker/golf crowd. Couldnt get the thought out of my head, lost about 10 golf balls today. Anyone have good advice/recipe for smoking a brisket?
