The secret to these smoked brisket recipes coming out juicy and tender on the inside, and with a nice crispy bark on the outside is keepin' it "low and slow"! Smoking brisket at the correct temperature forces the pitmaster to keep that baby smokin' for many hours.
All that time in the smoker gives the meat a deep-down smoky flavor and
melts the toughness right out. The chewy fibers in the brisket soften
and melt down, giving the meat awesome flavor and a juicy moistness that
just can't be beat.
It's a crying shame when someone smokes a brisket too hot. As the toughness melts away, the meat fibers contract, squeezing that juicy goodness right out. You deserve better than that! Check out my tutorial and learn How To Smoke Brisket.
