Marinating a Brisket?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My son is participating in a block party on Father's Day and was thinking about marinating a brisket.  He asked me and I don't know.  I'm not a huge brisket fan myself; too beefy tasting (if that makes any sense), so I thought I would throw the question out to the Pros.

Has anybody tried it?  If so, did it turn out good?  What's a good recipe? 

Or would an injection work better?

 

Thanks in advance.

I think you will find that for brisket an injection would work better than a marinade. IMHO.

Why not do it simple & just rub with S&P. Let the meat shine!

I am gonna have to agree with Mr Al, I have a many o times marinated a brisket and found it not to be as beneficial as you would think. Brisket's have such a long cook time it would be hard for any marinade flavor to stand up to it.

 

However, marinade comes cheap so it never hurts to try.

Another one to agree with the infinite wisdom of Mr. Al. Injecting is widely used in comps and in backyards. I am testing a new injection today. Well new for me. I'll post on this in a bit. Use the search function and see what ideas you can glean.

3/4 of Texas just fainted! No need to marinade or inject. Brisket is about beef. S&P and smoke it up.

Yep, if you remember "Sanford and Son"   I was having the big one.    Never understood why anyone would marinade or inject unless you are looking for a different flavor profile

Thanks for all the replies.  He decided that experimenting with a brisket is too risky for a block party and is going with Tri Tip instead.  He does cook a mean Tri Tip.

Thanks again.
