    Should I confit brisket

    Hi guys, the beef briskets that I get from my farm, are high quality grass-and a little grain-fed. They have got a fine fat cap, and are probably between the high select and the low choice in marbling, which, according to BBQ experts is very challenging for the beginner. I have seen the Mad...
