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.
