We tried this recipe last week and found it to be quite good. The only change we made, was to leave out the rub and double the bacon. We already have enough rub on the brisket. Here's a pic of it, post smoker insertion. As I was taking the pic, the Ayatollah was yapping "if you're lookin', you ain't cookin". I responded, "yeah and if your teeth are broken, you might be chokin". The response I got was quite scary. Ever see the movie "Cujo"? ENOUGH SAID! Have a nice holiday all.
