There are definitely stand-out cooks in various categories.

I think some "frustration" for lack of a better word comes along for those who have been producuing amazingly good products for years, and all of a sudden some guy gets a lot of press because of how good his stuff is, and lots of sheeple jump on the bandwagon that the definitive word has now been spoken about how to cook said product.

Take everything with a grain of salt, learn things that work for you, keep listening and trying to improve, but in the world of BBQ never assume that there is only one right way to do something to produce an amazing outcome.

Just my $.02.

Vision, you can't take Donnie too seriously lol...and he's one of one or two guys on this site that I would consider flying to from PA for one day of pit time. He's forgotten more than I've ever learned.

Not trying to take sides or get in the middle of anything...just my .02

Thanks for sharing the vids, ive never seen brisket jiggle like that. The Franklin videos were very informative, I like his simplistic approach and rub.

There seems to be a lot of negative energy when I see posts from Pitmaster T. Not trying to take sides or get in the middle of anything.... just my two cents.

I will take sides. Donnie was a member of this board, a long time before many of you showed up. He has helped a lot of folks, including me, learn to cook briskets a lot better. He has also donated a load of knowledge and a load of B.S. at times. If you stop and read a bit, you will find he does bring a great deal of value to the equation. I consider him to be both a good mentor and a good friend. I would also say, that a lot of what he says, is a lot of what Aaron Franklin is doing, ya just gotta give it some ear.

He was also a donor in monetary terms if I am not mistaken, but, circumstances change for all of us.

I completely agree. I also believe those sentiments need to go both ways here in this thread, regardless of "board status".

El Ropo, that link is straight bangin! All hail Donnie T, who knew how to cook a Texas brisket that jiggled before anyone knew who Aaron Franklin was.

Props to Franklin too, he obviously has some crazy pit skills.

In addition to the jiggle I'd say the Pitmaster T's brisket hits an all time awesome when he slices it with a dull dull pizza knife. looks like it slices like butter!

This is Q-Talk, guys. Please stay reasonably on topic, wouldja? While Jane Seymour is a babe, and yes, membership has its privileges, brisket is the topic.

I asked the meat mkt manager at my local grocery store if she could order me some all natural angus brisket since they sometimes carry it. It's supposed to be here today.. can't wait to see what they got. I hope that thing has a nice thick flat and is as limber as a wet noodle. I hope everything works out so I can smoke it this weekend.

I picked up an 18lb Angus certified Brisket this week for $2.99/lb. Little worried on the cook time for this, but am very excited to try this new technique.

I pay $3.19/lb for CAB Choice right now. I was just curious if the "All Natural" label affected the price?

She quoted me $3.49/lb which is better than their upscale Central Market chain. I called their meat market and they quoted me $7.99/lb

I don't know what the difference is, but I'm not sure it's worth trying at those prices. Might as well order from Creekstone farms directly and know exactly what I'm getting for that kind of money.

There is a local meat market where all they carry is prime or choice in both angus and regular brisket for about $3.49/lb. They are good briskets no doubt, but I want to see if I can taste the difference with an "all natural" brisket, cause Franklins sure did have a distinctive flavor to it.

That's a great price! Is that a full packer? Just allow yourself enough time, if you get done ahead of schedule it will rest just fine and probably do it some good anyway. Try to trim away any excess fat off the bottom to try to get some overall uniform thickness to it. It should cook more evenly like that. Don't go overboard though, you still need some fat on the bottom. What are you cooking on anyways?

I'm cooking on my 55gal UDS. This thing will span the distance from side to side, but I am sure it will shrink as it cooks.

Thanks for the tips on trimming. It is a full packer with a smaller point, so I bought a chuck roast to additional burnt ends. I am also planning on a turkey for a family reunion this weekend. Should be a lot of fun and a challenge to get the food just right.

Plan for now is to fire up the UDS tomorrow at about 4pm, put the brisket on and run it all night. I figure by 5am the next morning it should be ready to wrap in the paper and finish after that. Pull it off the drum at noon and put the turkey on right after. 4 hours of that and it should be good to go.
