I wondered what the big deal about brisket was too, until I farking NAILED my 4th attempt. A select 10lb packer that was on my drum for 14 hours followed by a cooler for 5 hours. I slept for 6 hours through the night too. I didn't inject it, just a simple dry rub and low and slow heat. It was the best meat of the shindig ( which included spares and pulled pork) and it was "nirvana". The flavor imparted into those 10 glorious lbs of beef was unlike that of any steak or other beef cut I've ever eaten. If I spend the rest of my life chasing that flavor down again than so be it. Long live brisket!
