So how do you recall the simmerering effecting the briskets finished color inside. Bark, smoke ring, interior meat and so on.....
Never notice then. Too young. Well to be precise, I don't remember anythign being vastly different in the internal color at the center.
I vacationed a lot in HUnt at Casa Bonita as a kid. Even help the Russels recover after the flood of 78.
I do know from experience that a smoke ring is a crap shoot after simmering but I think part of it gets there from time spent on the cool side.
