So I'm watching the KC episode of Man v. food this morning, and I see the guy at Oklahoma Joe's slice this awesome looking brisket with juices literally pouring out of it, and I'm totally jealous. My brisket is good, with good flavor, bu I have NEVER been able to achieve that kind of juiciness. Maybe it's the meat, maybe the technique, I don't know. What do y'all think? What has your experience been?

Johnny got it.

Just like squishing all the goodness out of a patty.

when the juices pour out you don't get to eat them.....

Nice catch! He pulled it right out of the pit and then sliced it.

Try foiling that brisket the last few hours after smoking...the juices will run out of it

I don't want to stray to far off the thread topic, but I love that show.
The guy is crazy! He should literally kill over dead on half the stuff he eats. Its basically the same show over and over, but I would watch it anyday over just about all of the reality shows...That being said, I've noticed on just about every episode with hamburgers, they smash the crap outta the burgers while cooking....What up with that!? They pulled the "presidential T-bone" off the grill last night and cut right into it and started eating...Hopefully this is all for t.v. affect:crazy:

The smash the burger for food safety. The get to burger well done so you don't get sick. Most steaks do not rest in a restaurant when they are done. Most people won't wait 30 minutes for a properly cooked steak.

The local NBC affiliate is streaming live a guy on the staff attempting to do the challenge, he started around 11:10pm and is doing a pretty good job on it. I guess They are going to do a story tonight on it and if its possible to actually beat the challenge.
