A good piece of meat one should be able to eat with no sauce.
These brisket cuts needed alot more than just sauce. How could this cook at this restaraunt avoided the bland taste of his brisket?
he could've added salt and pepper to start...lol. Or logged into SMF..or watched a YouTube video....but then again Houston has never been a place I go for Q...
