I've had some briskets that were hard to slice because all it wanted to do was break apart as the knife sliced through it. Probably a result of overcooking or overcoolering or both.
I'm interested in what you all think.
So where's the chili pron, Mista??
That makes a lot of sense as I did just that with a pork butt a couple months ago. Had to pull early and re-heated the next night which brought it to the right stage.
Good looking brisket Mista!
