View Full Version : First time using Black Ops

08-27-2018, 06:06 PM
I was cooking a ton of meat and wanted to try something special for one of the briskets. So I bought some black ops since I kept hearing great things. I covered the briskets a few hours before it hit the pit. the two briskets I cooked were about the best looking and technically flawless. But the Blackops even though it tasted great was not enough. I feel like it needed a second coating. I am going to try again and go way heavier next time. I also bought the Carne Crosta and plan to go extra heavy as well. The other brisket has fiesta brisket rib and a bunch of extra black pepper cuz texas.

Here are some pics anyways:

I like black ops as a base coat with coarse S & P over top

I like to use a thicker coat than most use.

Have you tried Bovine Bold? I really feel its better suited for Brisket. I like Black ops, but its better as a southwestern rub for pork carnita's or fajita's and tacos.

Tried my Carne Crosta on a rib eye and them some burgers. I thought I went heavy, but I would have liked more flavor. Ill go heavier next time.
