I has the chance to taste a brisket turned in by Harry Soo, in a comp that he did very well in overall, and to be honest, I whiffed on his brisket. It didn't seem to be all that great. Yet he scored very well with it. The flavor was very mild, almost subdued. The texture and moisture were great though.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
