mighty quinn's brisket, hold the sea salt, hold the fat

vinouspleasure | Oct 4, 201303:09 PM

I've had the brisket twice, first the platter and then the sandwich. When I ordered the platter, the server sliced a couple of nice pieces off the deckle and then, without asking me, threw on a handful of sea salt. Back at my table, it was obvious the brisket was prepared with a lot of love but every bite with sea salt was waaaaaay too salty. Not sure why they would smoke a brisket for 14 (or so) hours and then let a server ruin it by throwing on sea salt...without even asking the customer.

Yesterday I tried the brisket sandwich ("no sea salt please"), the server cut off a couple of nice pieces of brisket but one was loaded with fat. I don't mind cutting fat off on a platter but it really doesn't belong on a sandwich.

the brisket itself is a thing of beauty, tender, smokey, with a great flavor and bark. I'm a kcbs bbq judge, have judged 100s of entries, eaten brisket in hill country, texas and this brisket would win in competition. Just can't understand why they're willing to mar such great bbq.
