It is good! Smoking is kind of labor intensive, but it is always worth the effort.
I make smashed potatoes to go along with it. No peeling, I just boil the spuds until they're ready
to get smashed with the bottom of a beer bottle, skins 'n all. It will last about 6 meals for me. Even though it was
in the low 50's, by the time I got home after 300 miles, I was a little chilled.
I'm thinking you've probably sampled some high caliber Texas brisket, OCR. That's one cut
of beef I haven't done yet. I need to request one that hasn't been spiced/cured to make corned beef
because everything available at the local grocery store has been "messed with". Brisket is on my list
to do this summer.
