Tim (Groundhog) has had an excellent brisket, R2Egg2Q and Phat Matt's both cook excellent briskets. He just doesn't like em as much as other cuts. I can see that. /My preference is for sliced point, but, I will always take good brisket fresh from the cooker. Tim also eats brisket without pickle and raw onions, with utensils off of plates, so, what does he really understand.
