A guy at work wants me to smoke 10 briskets for him next weekend. His wife wants them marinated for 3 days first though. They used to pay a guy here in town to smoke their briskets (for parties and such), and he told them that he marinated them for 3 days. I told him I never marinate mine, that it is pointless to marinate a brisket. He said his wife said it has to be done. Now, he has ate my brisket numerous times, and told her I know how to smoke a brisket. Should I marinate them? If so, in what? Or should I just smoke them the way I always do, and say, "Yeah I marinted them"? I told him I would smoke them for him, if he came over and helped (and learned how to do it), for a brisket to keep.
