Smoking my first brisket tomorrow. Any help appreciated. - Page 2

post #21 of 22

I think the pictures of your final product look great, wish I could reach through the PC and try a few!  Since you say it was drier than you want, I will mention that I've been watching a series on Netflix about competition barbecue called Pitmasters.  Nearly all of them inject beef broth or some other liquid into the brisket before they cook.  For what its worth I tried it on my last brisket (packer cut) and had good results.  Haven't smoked that many briskets yet, but the flats I've cooked tended to dry out, if you like to experiment you could give it a try on your next one.

Thanks for the kind words. I have never injected anything yet but I am sure I will experiment with that. That's what I love about smoking. I feel like I never do the same thing twice. Always experimenting, tweaking etc. Hard to find packers around here. Brisket isn't too popular around here so the flat is pretty much all I can find. Now you've spiked my interest in injecting.
