Competition time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have been doing bbq cookoffs for quite a while and have done pretty well in them, but i would like to do better. I know that someone has new ideas and strategies for cooking a brisket. I have a 24" x 8' pit with a fire box on one end. I use Red Oak wood and charcoal. How do you all do a brisket? i season mine, throw it on the grill, smoke it for about six hours then wrap in foil and bring the It to around 200. What can i do better?



               Thank you,

When you ask "What can I do better". What is it that you don't think you have done. Is the brisket tender? Is it juicy? Does it have a good flavor? Can you taste the smoke? For competition it should have a nice smoke ring, does it? What area do you need to improve on?
