I have been successful at turning my wife's idaho family into Southerners. Well, sort of..
We have brisket every year for Christmas dinner. I will be starting the smoke tomorrow morning and smoking it all day.
I used a wet rub this year. I rubbed it with
Light brown sugar
Then I sprayed it down with Apple Juice and rubbed the rub in. Right now its sitting in bags in my frig. It will have marinated in the rub for 48 hours.
In the morning, I will start the smoke probably with a fresh application of the rub.
I will try to remember to post pics through out the process.
