BBQ Texas Brisket
Brisket is the national food of the Republic of Texas and a whole brisket is a great excuse for a party.
A whole barbecue beef brisket is a huge clod of cow that can come off the pit almost black, looking more like a meteorite than a meal. But it is not burnt, and beneath the crust is the most tender, juicy, smoky meat. If you cook it right. And that’s a BIG IF.
