I am trying a 15lb brisket. It's my second one. First was ok, but not as good as I would have liked. I'll try to keep this up to date as I go through the cook. First things first. Here is the raw product...check the price! So, its not going to be a terrible loss if it goes wrong. I put some salt and pepper on it with some garlic and onion powder. Keep it simple I guess. Some guy at work who smokes professionally with a trailer and such said to use 3 parts Dr. Pepper and one part good tequila or cheap rum. Soak it for 12 hours, then dry rub it and rest for another 12. But, by then I will have starved and all my friends will have gone to Twin Peaks instead. So, here we go again!
