I am from Australia, my wife is from Texas... I convinced her to allow me to buy a BGE so as to cook some tender brisket, only problem is that after attempt # 4 it is is as tough and chewy as my RM's (Australian boots).
I'm not sure if it is the meat i buy (I get it from costco) as I have no butcher in the vicinity, or the way I cook, although I have followed to the tee, the directions on this site... The most recent attempt I cooked undisturbed for 18 hours, and although edible, not the same as the Brisket I have when I travel down south.
Any help/advice would be most welcome
