There is a ton of advice on here explaining how to have a successful brisket cook. While there are some variations most everyone does it similarly. I read many posts, decided on a method before my first attempt and have now cooked 5 brisket sin the past 1.5 months with group feedback that everyone of them turned out very good. With just some time reading post from all the helpful people on this forum you will have a successful cook also. Enjoy!
