    Dave cooking a nice brisket is devoting at least half a day of your precious time to it , not sleeping well most of the time and playing the temps right so that in the end someone else can say....... Oh it's nice....... :woohoo:
  • "Sparky""Sparky" Posts: 6,024
    :woohoo: Very true buddy ;) I'm still just happy to see that you finally got it home ;) :P

    Isn't that a beauty. Showed it to a few of my friends & they were very impressed, nothing to do with the comercial knife stands. Tomorrow I'll take some nice shots of it & post them buddy I'm very lucky. TKS again
  • Beli,

    As always - the pics make me wish I was in Monterrey!!
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Well Jerry , you know you are always welcome home, we could egg a few goodies here

    It all looks good. Your brisket has beautiful color on the outside. How did the brisket come out ? My concern is overcooking it. The cake looks good too. Sometimes starting with dessert sounds good.

    Enjoy your week end.

    Gary, I always use a drip pan with wine and/or water it helps keeping the brisket moist & tender, when I foil I add a bit of juice as well
