I went deep down the YouTube 'how to make a brisket' rathole last week. I watched many more videos on the art and process of smoking beef brisket than I knew were out there or possible.
Had I been pointed to this video first I could have stopped, even though some of the folks in YouTube instructional bbq videos are really colorful.
Aaron Franklin is a bbq champion who makes amazing brisket, runs a brisket restaurant in Austin, Texas, and lays everything you need to know in this simple and easy-to-follow video.
My first attempt at a full packer brisket was an incredible success, thanks to YouTube.
