I highly recommend that episode. Brisket is my worst category in my short comp career and the simplicity in which he cooks great brisket was inspiring. Bourdain's crew got some great video to illustrate what the "jiggle" looks like, and the brisket looked drenched in it's own juices when he sliced it. Loved when the guest showed the snap when he did the pull test as well.
