First brisket at home. Want to try something different.

  1. Ive done about 100 briskest when I worked for a BBQ joint before it closed. But I have only had my smoker since December, and haven't done a brisket yet. Here's what I was wondering. I have a marinade for flank steak that is your basic flank steak marinade. I love it for flank, but how would it be with a brisket. Im torn. Here's te recipe.

    1/3 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 limes, juiced
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon ground white pepper
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon paprika

    Blend everything but the oil, and drizzle in the oil as the blender is running. Marinate over night.

    What do you think? I know it's not common,but I hate to be ordinary. I was also thinking of adding some dry red wine to the mix, or maybe a stout beer.

    Give it a try.  I would leave out the wine but that is just me.  Good luck.

    I agree on the wine. It does funny things with smoke
