Well....I made the worst brisket I've made in years today. And as luck would have it, it was for a big family get-together that everyone said "you bring the brisket" (as I always do). I tried to push it through the stall this morning at home by wrapping in paper then FTC for 2 hrs. For the drive out. By the time we got there It was like sawdust. I served all the best bites that I could but it was falling apart like a dried out pot roast when I tried to cut most of it. I was like 10 in a row of getting better and better. Guess I was due a kick in the nuts and I got one tonight. Oh well, bourbon in hand and we will live to fight another day. Damnit.
