Many top barbecue teams wrap their brisket midway through the cooking. This hurries things up and helps the brisket stay juicy. Other teams inject their brisket to give it more flavor. This recipe combines both techniques.
Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
Beverage pairing: Luna Sangiovese, Napa Valley. The smoky, moist, well-spiced meat will go well with a sharp, bright red wine. In this case, a Californian Sangiovese, because of its bright fruit, elegant roundness, and hints of pepper and herbs.
