Just did the Night Train Brisket...
How do you shoot a target if you don't know what it looks like? Well unless you just get lucky you can't.
That is how I was with Brisket. I was trying to cook a piece of meat not knowing what the texture was supposed to be. I had heard people describe it, but that can only help so much.
If anyone is struggling with this like me. I highly recommend that you read the thread, and do the experiment.
By no means have I hit my target, I just know where it is now.
