For thread-reading clarity, the original post:
I was planning on smoking a 12 pound brisket on Saturday but I had a last minute recording session and had to leave town, my wife messed up the recipe but it turned out great, here is what happened:
I brined the 12 pound brisket starting Friday night then left town.
My wife on Saturday night forgot what I told her and took the brisket out of the brine and rinsed it, she then rubbed it with a mixture of ground chipotle pepper, black pepper, chili powder, sugar, $#@!in and cilantro, she then cut it in two (don’t ask why) and put each piece in a large freezer bag, put half a bottle of liquid smoke in each bag and put them back in the fridge, on Sunday night she put both pieces into a large metal turkey roasting pan then covered them with a mixture of Stubbs and cattleman’s BBQ sauce, she cooked it at 225 for 5 hours. I was pissed with I got home and while I was yelling about her screwing up my brisket she shoves a piece of the brisket in my mouth, I almost popped a boner, it was the best $#@!ing brisket I have ever tasted outside of a restaurant. My wife is giving me the biggest $#@! eating grin along with a told you so look.
Best brisket ever? This thread has serious potential.
you have a pan for cooking large metal turkeys? WOOT!!
Is that the only brisket you've had outside of a restaurant?
oh god NO!Originally Posted by C-Man
what the op describes is what one of the guys that I work with does when his church here in Miami has a "BBQ" cook off.
except that he doesn't have a pan for roasting metal turkeys so he uses a crock pot, oh and did I mention, he's from OKLAHOMA!.
"Best brisket ever? This thread has serious potential"
potential for $#@!s to crawl out from under their rocks.

Thanks man, after working 30+hours over weekend it was nice of her not to $#@! it up.

I dident do the $#@!ing thing $#@!s, it was done by my wife as a favor for me. If you dont like the way she did it go $#@! yourself. Straw, I always brine tough peices of meat, been doing it that way for 25 years.
I do not give a $#@! that it was made that way.
I do not give a $#@! that you liked it.
You calling it the BEST BRISKET you ever tasted outside a restaurant, when it was braised in sauce and not smoked is $#@!ing retarded.
can you please loan me shovel to dig him up with?
I get sick of you $#@!ers that take a simple thing like my wife cooking a brisket and turning into something bad.
Goddam $#@!ing food Nazi's.
dude...how could you post what you posted and think you were going to get any other kind of response?
i'm still curious as to why there was liquid smoke in your house. i thought that only existed at burger king.
I want to share with you a secret...
one that will probably ,make your wife leave you if she ever tries their brisket....
They are like the best BBQ ever, and since you have never had something better outside a restaurant, this will be your BBQ Mecca......
Clearly you've never had brisket in Dallas
WHO THE $#@! CARES IF I HAVE MOTHER $#@!ING GODDAM LIQUID SMOKE IN MY $#@!ING HOUSE!!!!!!!!
Rudys is a $#@!ing restaurant idiot
Jesus $#@!ing christ.

You know what would have been the cherry on top of that brisket roast?
Some Salt Lick sauce.
This thread reoccurs every 3 months or so. It's inevitable.
One time, my GF accidentally spilled a bunch of nutmeg, kidney beans, and spaghetti noodles into my chili. I was pissed at first but after I tried it, it was awesome. Probably the best chili I've ever had.
I tried O'Douls once, and goddamn that was the best beer I ever had
You should have served chili with beans as a side dish.
Is that from the episode where Tyler Florence gives away his Applebee's brisket recipe?
Tell her to try boiling it in a bag for a couple of hours next time.Originally Posted by RabidHorn
This thread turned into a dreadful mistake rather quickly...
You didnt eat brisket $#@! face.
You ate a piece of meat that was more like a roast.
Call that $#@! roast.
It can't be called brisket here in Texas unless that $#@! was smoked slow on a pit.
Go with my blessings.Originally Posted by RabidHorn
One time my wife made fajitas and cut the meat WITH the grain. I was mad at first until I tried them. THEY WERE THE BEST FAJITAS EVER!!!!!!!
