Default Odd brisket

The wife and I went to Famous Dave's BBQ today for lunch. The spare ribs
and chicken were about as good as you can expect from a commercial BBQ
place. But the brisket was unlike any I've seen (not in a good way).

The brisket had absolutely zero smoke ring. The weird thing is the side
that had been the bottom of the brisket had a very thin "bark" on it. The
top had none of that "bark" at all. The slices had a uniform brownish
color all the way through (again, no smoke ring). And a somewhat salty
taste.

Alexis, who has only had my smoked brisket, was disappointed. Her question
cracked me up. She didn't ask how they cooked it. She asked me, "What
HAPPENED to that?"

My only guess was that they used some kind of liquid smoke/rub on the
bottom, seared it, and then threw it in a regular oven. Ick.

We have one of those in Tulsa. While it isn't my favorite I do like their
ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. Legends BBQ is my favorite in
T-Town but they don't have the pulled pork. RM~

Betcha $100 you are right. There is a place here in town that smokes
their meat for a a couple of hours, then puts in in the oven overnight
to finish. It has that same look you are talking about, and it is the
same way my brisket turns out if I get caught in a quick forming
rainstorm and have to bail out of bbqing outiside.

On the other hand, I once saw a recipe that the folks cooked the meat
inside an oven overnight then took it outside to the pit to finish it
off before serving.

In either case, I would have to think that the resulting product would
taste like a kind of smokey pot roast.

Nasty.

Sounds like TGI Fridays. They cook their brisket and ribs in a Pressure
cooker then dip them in a BBQ sauce.

FWIW famous dave's buys the briskets already cooked--just heat and
serve---smokey bones does the same!

Famous Dave's finishes everything in the broiler before serving.
