Texas-Style Barbecue Beef Brisket

Tipping my hat to Cook's Illustrated, I demonstrate their version of this Texas classic using only a Weber kettle grill. This often unsung and often disparaged cut of beef is full of flavor and can be sufficiently tender if cooked properly. Similar cuts that are equally sniffed at by the "steakhouse" crowd include hanger steak, butcher's cut (now popularized as a flatiron steak) and flank steak. Rolled and stuffed flank steak has helped lift the flank from the ranks of the unsung, but it is fundamentally a "cheap" cut of beef.
