BRISKET

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I just tried brisket and it was not tender. The rub was fantastic and the meat tasted great but was not tender. I smoked it at220 for 4 1/2 hr and then double wrapped it in tin foil and smoked it 2 more hours. The internal meat temp was 180 when I took it out. Any suggestions of what I did wrong or was it just a tough piece of meat to start with.

I'm thinking tough meat, poor marbling. Here is a short article that may help.
