Maybe you need to try The Night Train In A Dark Closet - An experiment and learning experience on brisket tenderness. All you need is an oven, a 5 pound flat, pepper, celery salt and some foil. I recommend this to a lot of younger barbecuists. You learn what a tender brisket feels like, plus you get a great meal to boot.
I'll try anything at this point. thanks.
