My wife has really got brisket down. USDA choice briskets are on sale at $1.49/lb again so we just had to do another one. Last night she smoked a 10 pound brisket. 8 hours on the smoker and 4 hours in the oven. I paid a little more attention to her smoking techniques this time and I see how she gets so much more smoke flavor than I do. Anytime the smoke is not absolutely billowing out of the smoker she adds more coals and wood. I'd guess she cooks with almost 50% wood. The result was a brisket with deep smoke flavor, perfectly rendered fat, and very moist and tender. Yes, I'm a lucky man! If that wasn't enough, she also smoked up a bunch of her excellent chicken as well. Sorry, no pictures of the chicken. We ate it!
