My Buckaroo Brisket

Translation from my Submarine Brisket as this one needed a upgrade from underwater!
Due to a severe storm approaching I had to cut the cook short at a meat temperature of 165 degrees F. This was at 2:00 a.m. in the morning of Monday June 10, 2000.
I think I learned something from this one that gonna influence my next cook drastically. Do you need to go to 200F on a brisket to get a classic? From the taste and texture of this one, something accidentaly went right. Maybe it was the 24 hour marinate in Dales Marinate or the overlay of bacon, but this brisket was outstanding in texture, tenderness, and flavor...
More later...just a update and I will enter this one in the recipes section.


  • Char-Woody, ya goofed again. How can you ever maintain any sort of credibility here..You meant Monday, July 10, 2000. The rest was maybe subliminal at best..:-) Yer shadow..C~W[p]

    Puj, I will do...sometime today. Anxious to get other opinions. Check out Dales at their website and if you can find it on the shelf..try it.

    Here is another great marinade that tastes just like Dales but with a lot less salt.

    Grillin Bill,
    Go to the other post. I didn't enter the URL correctly at first.

  • Char-WoodyChar-Woody Posts: 2,642
    JJ, that would be great and work also..or any marinate of choice. Dales is 51% sodium.
    But I noticed very little import of salt in the taste.
    Thanks for the tip and url of the other one. I will try it!

  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    Moores states 29% sodium.

    JJ, I sent em a e.mail suggesting a new local kitchen and BBQ store here in town. Maybe we get it going in Iowa.
    Thanks again.
