Yet another Brisket topic - but not mine - my friends that I ate Sunday night - with questions

Before I got an Egg - I was a brisket zero.   Couldn't cook one that was even halfway decent.   With the Egg, some input from this forum, I am thinking I kinda got it down.    Kickin out a damn fine brisket every other week.

My friend cooked one this weekend on his Egg.   Actually he has asked me for a lot of input on time, temp, etc - he has not done a huge amount of them..    But he had a twist, an old family recipe for a marinade.   I am the first one to say - don't need it.    Till now.    I have to tell ya, that thing was out of this world --- flavorful, juicy.    OMG.

I think the brisket I cook is as good or better than anything you get in most bbq places.   His brisket was waaaaaaay beyond mine.

So, life is about learning new things.   

Have you done marinades?      ( thinkin Travis is doing that)

How do you marinate?

How does injecting compare to marinating?    Is it the same effect?   or Different?

    You got it, boss. Except, I only marinate during the cook. It makes a huge difference. When I cook in the marinate, the whole brisket tastes much better. In fact, the bottom half of the meat is usually much more tender.

    Ive never tried to marinate prior to cooking.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • He soaked in a mixture overnight.
    did he brine it then rub and cook it dry or did he cook it in the liquid too?

    Im pretty interested to hear his step by step approach.  Is his family old family marinade recipe top secret?

     

    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ...

    Actually - it is an old family recipe that his dad used when he was growing up.    I have a copy of the recipe on the way.   Whole multitude of ingredients that he was naming off.   Will post more details when I get it.

    And get better mileage too I'm sure. Magic mustard.

    It will make the rub stick better, but hopefully not the barnacles.
