    I watched Rick Perry in the presidential primary debates and think "what the hell is uwrong with Texas?". I'm come on this forum: now I know.

    I can't wait for Salado.

    There's nothing wrong with Texas...

    ...and that folks, was how the Travis method was born.  Travis, for once in his life, followed directions and braised.

    Jumped on the bandwagon with a 6 pounder from Costco. Cut it in half so we could have one spicy with Sirachai sauce and one not. Right now we're double-decking it on an AR indirect at 285F with some mesquite chunks. Used Coors Light, didn't want to waste good beer!

    One question from a brisket noob: At 205F IT do you pull the brisket? I think you slice. But I pull chucks at that temp, the pepper/beef/stout recipe works similar. Deep inside you get this "Who pulls a brisket ???".

    Slice it! Pencil size slices against the grain.

    You want some fat, especially on the flat where the meat doesn't have much marbling.  But you could if you wanted to.

    Yeah, I figured if it was in the braising liquid...whats the point of having all that fat on it.  I could be wrong, but i wouldnt think much of it would render since its just chillin' in the liquid.
    It may actually render better since liquid is a much more efficient transferrer of heat than air.

    I do not care for stuff on my briskets. Just me. I would think the Masterpiece would be pretty swett as most sweet of there stuff is. The Moores, I am not familiar with. You can always use plain 'ol beef broth ......

    Sorry,

    I meant to say "sweet stuff"  My usual martinis are talking, I think.

    I think the Travis Method is great, BTW>

    Allegro also has a "Brisket Sauce".  Anyone ever tried that one?


    Looks like it is also soy sauce based with some brown sugar and vinegar. I saw this once in a grocery store in NC but don't think I have seen it in my area. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    :)) i wonder how many briskets actually get cooked as a bbq brisket
  • I cooked brisket Travis' method just this weekend. And I get raving reviews about how good and tender it is from everyone. Will post pics once I get off work tonight.
