Texas Full Brisket

Acadamy Brisket 6

This Texas Full Brisket is prepared in the smoker for a meal that is falling-apart tender. Watch the video to see how Big Moe Cason prepares this flavorful cut.

After your brisket is cooked, always cut against the grain for the most tender slice. Score the brisket against the grain before you cook it, to help determine how to slice it after it is cooked.

After cooking the brisket, remove the point and turn it into burnt ends. Slice the point into cubes, toss it with your favorite BBQ sauce, and throw it back on the fire to caramelize.
