Brisket, its not just for breakfast anymore!
[quote="Mike(Mi)"]Well, I've only got one thing to say about this. Brisket is always an adventure. Anyone who says it isn't is either not very discerning about their brisket, is use to eating what they get, or will eat anything put in front of them. Let's face it, a GREAT brisket, on any given day, is a less than 50/50 prospect for most of us. You can have all the great DP marinade and great basic rubs you want. Brisket is always an adventure. There's no short-cuts to Brisket. C'mon guys, this is one of the basic premises of my world view.
If it weren't for the challenge of making really good Q, i don't think I would enjoy BBQ. I recently told someone that one of the things I like about this site (as opposed to the ORIGINAL) is posting honestly I would rather make and report colossal mistakes than just bragging about sweet smoke. Give me the jalapenos and lets try something NEW!!! That's what quing is about for me. And if Uncle Farker want's to put his two cents in on how it should be done, we will just move Thanksgiving to his house THIS year and he can show ALL of us. (oops a rant , well I feel better now)
I get bored making the same things in the same way. As soon as I feel I have a "technique" down, I will just do something to spice up the experience. I am not quite to the level of a "margarita marinade" yet, but give me time... :)
