My wife happened to win a Trager Lil Txas Elite, and it just so happend that here birthday was the following Sunday. So for her birthday I decided to cook her up a brisket. It turned out OK, wasnt the best I've ever made. For the most part the brisket itself was not that great as far as the meat was concerned. It turned out to be really fatty and full of grissel(sp) on the inside. It also was quite dry when I went to slice it up. I marinated it for approx 24 hrs in soy sauce, worcestershire, garlic, and a few other ingredients. I think next time I will just smoke the brisket and forget about marinades and rubs, everyone else in my family smothers it in BBQ sauce anyways. Anyways here is a pic of the brisket right before I took it off. Enjoy.
