NC BBQ guy got my eyes on some Texas brisket. Advice

ColAngusColAngus Posts: 106
I'm a born n bred Lexington BBQ type of guy. But as I've traveled around I've quickly learned that it's good, but there's lots of other great food out there.

I just got back from Austin TX for the first time and I had some of awesome BBQ brisket (and some burnt ends) and I don't wanna mess with no pork- at least for a while. 

Sorry for the word vomit... what I'm looking for is a few pointers or links to videos that will help. 

Also- is there any Mickey's Turbo version for brisket?!?!?

    You made me think of a quote from John Oliver on the Daily Show where he ranked BBQ styles:

    1. Texas BBQ
    2. Kansas City BBQ
    3.  No BBQ
    4.  Carolina BBQ

     =) 

    But seriously, go to YouTube and search for Franklin BBQ videos, he gives all the best info.  I'd also recommend searching the forum and look for brisket masters like Cen-Tex.  Good luck!

    PM sent that may give you a solid base-line.  I recall that @Mickey has done turbo brisket but I can't help beyond that.  Maybe the forum ping will elicit a response.

    BBQ with Franklin was a PBS show featuring the man himself.  Watch his videos.  He covers trimming, seasoning, wrapping, etc.

    @Mickey I’m curious about this turbo brisket as I don’t like to do overnight cooks. In the covered foil pan part, do you not need to put any liquid in? Also is it just one injection in the point or flat?

    Like you i do NOT cook overnight anymore. Sold and gave away all wiring/ computers etc... No liquid in pan. Inject all the beef broth you can all over the brisket.

    Another "don't with a controller".  But I do fire up the BGE a good 2-3 hours in advance of loading the protein so everything is stable at the start of the cook.

    Gonna try this...I have a controller but the most fun cooking brisket is enjoying adult beverages while waiting & I’m way too old for all nighters.  Thanks @Mickey   for sharing your experience with us.
