What should I use to smoke my first brisket, aka "The Mt. Everest of BBQ"
The Memphis Wood-Fired Pellet Grill.
Selecting the Memphis for this arduous voyage (a 15 hour cook!) was pretty simple. I wanted a dependable grill that would inculcate the brisket with sheets of fragrant smoke, all the while maintaining a low temperature through the overnight hours. Brisket is a most unforgiving cut, so I knew I needed a grill partner that would protect me from turning the brisket into a horse saddle.
The "set it and forget it" style of the Memphis was tailor-made for my needs. And you know what? For a first-timer, the brisket came out pretty damn good...people were asking for seconds!
