Brisket is garbage in my opinion.
We're only all doing it here because of the Americans.
I'd much rather a smoked lamb or goat shoulder.
This x100. The only beef I actually like from the smoker is a reverse sear on a good steak or homemade jerky. Also made some Pastrami at xmas which was pretty good.
Ah I don’t mind Brisket, I don’t rate it 10/10, but it’s pretty decent. I’d probably rather do Beef Ribs instead, at least it’s a consistent thickness which makes cooking a lot easier.
The local smoke places here do a tonne of brahman hump, which is delicious if you like the texture of the fat side of brisket. Was too fatty for me, but in small doses it’s ridiculously good. At least it’s a more consistent size/shape as well which makes cooking more forgiving.
I like brisket. it has a distinct character of its own, and it needs to be treated right to get something that is nice to eat. that doesn't mean it will turn into prime rib, so if that's the expectation there will be disappointment.
