What about brisket?

Discussion in 'Beef' started by smokincoalkracker, Aug 17, 2011.

  1. I smoke some kind of meat almost every weekend, usually pork or chicken.  Never have I eaten, touched, smelled or been friends with a brisket.  I have an mes and a weber 26" kettle to smoke with.  What can I expect from a brisket as far as taste, texture and tenderness (TTT).  Other than my own opinion, how do I know a brisket smoke has been a success?  What am I looking for when I finish one of these massive hunks of meat?  Thanks guys and gals.

    It should have some nice bark on it, be very juicy, and taste great.

    Here's a look at one I did a while back.
