Helloooo BBQ Central from Auburn, Washington!!

I just joined up & am anxiously seeking advice & information on preparing my brisket. My family thinks I've perfected my chicken, ribs & pork shoulder, but the brisket is my downfall.

I have the third largest collection of grills & smokers in my family. This is after having to downsize my selection. I currently have a Brinkmanship electric smoker, and a Weber Genesis stainless. I'm using one or the other everyday. I also have a couple more Vintage Webers & a charcoal brand X'er in storage.

Hearty welcome. That electrified Brinksmannship would be my choice for a brisket battle. Every good brisket starts out with a good mop/sop. Check out Walter Jetton's version in the recipe section. It keeps for a long time so get a batch made up and report back. Thanks. Rome wasn't built in a day ya know?

PS Edit..you also need a good Brisket rub. Wild Willys from the Smoke and Spice book aint to shabby for home eating purposes. Now Texas BBQ judges dont seem to like it too well for comp. They like Headcountry which is a storebought item.

Welcome to the forum, I'm partial to Weber Kettles and WSM's. Look into an Ugly Drum Smoker. They are an excellent choice too for not a lot of money and just a little bit of hand tool knowledge.

For that brisket, don't get a tiny one. A 12 to 15 pound FULL brisket will give you lots better results than a 3 or 4 pound flat.

Look along the edges of the flat and pick one with LOTS of fat marbling in the flat. You also want at least a choice grade. Select or lower grade has little internal fat and less flavor.

I agree with Bob here, If youre cooking a brisket, get a full nose-on packer. a fifteen pounder doesn't take that much longer. Go for prime, if it's available, choice if not. it's worth the money.

Hell that is all I can get around me is flats, unless I go to the Eastern Market, and pay a crapload of money.
