For lunch today I went to my favorite BBQ joint. Now keep in mind that I live in NC, so BBQ means pork, but this place recently started serving beef brisket. Well I tried it and it was not only the worst brisket I have ever eaten, it was the worst beef I have ever eaten.
It was very tender, but first of all it was sliced 3/4" thick, it had no bark, it had no fat, it had no flavor and when I put it in my mouth it sucked all of the moisture right out of my mouth. It tasted like, and had the texture of pot roast, but without the flavor. The meat itself was very dark, like it had been cooked in liquid.
It really is too bad because this place has the best pulled pork of any place I have eaten at.
I guess they should stick to pork and leave the beef alone.
