    My cooking buddy does our briskets. I quit doing them because of cost of the meat and variability in quality. Also, I suck at them, which may be the real reason. Yesterday's were about a "B-". I do have a secret I can share that is used by many restaurants now, though.

    Matt: I've posted it before, we cook weekends at Baum when Razorbacks play baseball. Last 10 years, no exceptions. No secret.
    You want it engraved?

    Hey Matt,

    What's your carb cleaning schedule look like this week?

    I put gas in the old Swisher trim and mow wheeled weed eater this weekend and fired it right up.
    Started trimming some hill side to make sure it worked before I let someone borrow it to mow their property.
    Well a couple minutes in it sputters and dies. I get it level and started again then it dies again.

    So I pulled the tank swished the new gas around some and drained it. Blew out the fuel line. Pulled the carb and bowl off of it.Freed up the float and dumped some chunks out of the bowl. Had put it back together and was just trying to start it when someone infromed me they were just going to buy a new lighter version from the HomeDepot.

    I forgot to even look at the brand when she got it but later learned the Ryobi wheeled weedeater is no different then the vac/blower of theirs I bought a few years back. Started fine first time out. Every restart after the short run time with a very small tank was harder and harder to accomplish. So it went back after three tanks of fuel yesterday afternoon. So now I am back to trying to get the Swisher with the 6.5 Briggs and Stratton to run well so she can use it.

    ugghhh, in the process of migrating from Regular HD's to an SSD on my desktop PC. A bit of the PITA since you can't just copy over. Have to monkey with the damn partitioning. :becca

    Hey Doc, I typed this up for Arkwizard, so I decided to go ahead an share it with you.

    :D

    the easiest, and likely best brisket youve ever cooked....

    I usually have the shop just cut me just the flat part, it should have some fat, but not more than 1/4" thick on it, trim off any more than that.

    rub it all over with 1/2 cup of vodka, and garlic salt.

    put it on a hot grill, brown it on one side, flip it, brown the other side.
    maybe 5-8 minutes per side, you want to put some grill marks on it, and sear it well.

    remove from grill

    Put it in a sealable container, or a heavy duty zip lock bag, then into the refrigerator overnight

    The next morning, remove from fridge, and slice it how you want it, and redistribute the juices in it, there should be quite a bit more juice than when you stuck it in the fridge, if not add a bit of quality H20
    Put it in a tightly covered baking dish (use foil if needed to seal)
    Bake in oven at 325 for 2.5 hours, then at 275 for another hour.

    Notes:
    The original recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of liquid smoke in with the Vodka, I use a charcoal grill with some hardwood to sear it instead ( I hate liquid smoke)

    Original cooking time was 350 for 3 hours, then 275 until serving time, when I have used those times and temps, its nearly dry, so I have been reducing it.

    tnx Matt..got it! :thumb One of the secrets I was told for brisket was a whole head of cabbage...trim the fat of course, but use a few of those trimins for flavor, feed to the dog when done.

    on another note, NO PINCHED TUBES! :clap

    chuckles and I mounted his new rear tire today..it went unbelievably smooth and quick today, and not one pinched tube was made :D
