My first brisket and I can't taste a darn thing!

Bought a 4.3lb flat brisket the other day.  Not the best looking piece of meat but it was reduced for quick sale.

Did a mustard coating following by a spice/brown sugar rub I use on pork shoulders.

Set the medium egg up under a patio umbrella because of rain.  Got egg to 250 and put it on the egg at 5:30pm. Pulled it off at 200deg around midnight.

Here's the tragic part.  I let it rest for a while, then cut into it, and took a bite.  The whole house has been sick all week and I have no real sense of taste.  I can tell it's not dry and it's tender, but as far as flavor, nada.  I think I got a hint of smoke, but that's it.

    Well, you have a nice little smoke ring so you definitely hit it with some smoke...

  • If you were already stuffed up and had trouble tasting and then add to it that you were outside smelling the smoke I can see that the flavour would seem lacking to you.  I find the next day there will be a more pronounced flavour.  Looks good sure it tastes good too.
