Celebrating a rich history, savor their giant beef ribs, spicy sausage, and melt-in-your-mouth brisket. Learn the secrets behind selecting the perfect brisket to elevate your barbecue experience to new heights.

Selecting The Perfect Brisket

When selecting a brisket, look for even marbling and a thick, flat layer of fat. Trimming is crucial; shape the brisket aerodynamically to ensure even cooking and maintain enough fat to keep the meat moist and happy. Season generously on all sides for a flavorful crust. Creating a melt-in-your-mouth brisket is a work of art - the brisket is done when it's tender enough to glide a probe through with little resistance. Finally, slice against the grain to ensure each piece is tender and full of flavor, creating a perfect beef brisket.
