All I can say about this is I would not want my first Franklin experience to be from one of his vac sealed and heated later briskets. Even though I use the same method for LEFTOVERS I would want mine straight off the block when he is asking you what you prefer. :dont: :dont: :dont:

The lines at his place speak volumes for his repeat customers. His wood piles are huge I doubt it is his wood selection. There is a good chance that in your mind you are expecting what you think the brisket should be. Everyones interpretation of a perfectly cooked brisket is different some feel over smoked food is what its all about while others like a more subtle smoke. I would never stand in line for more than 20 minutes for any meal because I know what I turn out at home is every bit as good.

Typically I use nothing but hickory and red oak for my cookers but this weekend I tried pecan and oak on a neighbors brisket. They actually liked the pecan oak mix better. It is all in what you perceive as good BBQ. You may stand in line at his place and find that that is what all his briskets taste like and you are over smoking your's. But at the end of the day if that is what you like you have found what you want. :D
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.

I vac seal all my cooked brisket after eating my fill, the wife just nibbles, and while I can eat a decent amount right off the smoker, I have to vac seal and freeze the rest or it goes bad.
ALL of mine has tasted great out of the vac bag, so while there is no substitute for meat straight from a smoker, thawed is still pretty close.
Which is why I'm cornfused as to why his lacked smoke flavor what with the dark exterior.
And yes I do love lots of smoke flavor, as long as it's from the "pale blue".

The people who wont stand in the lines to try them first hand are always the most critical.

"Theres no smoke ring"

"Theres no smoke flavor"

"Mine is better"

"Its hipster BBQ, not real BBQ".


What else? The sauce was too thin and runny and not sweet like the kind you get at the grocery store?

You just got a taste of real brisket and youre confused because you have convinced yourself those creosote bricks you have been cranking out in the backyard are what its supposed to be like.

All those Top 50 are really similar to Franklin. If youre saying yours is better than Franklin, youre saying yours are better than the Top 50. And thats laughable. Im sure your wife is nice. But she clearly knows nothing about good BBQ. And you judge based on fake smoke rings and smoke flavor. You have much to learn too.

Wow, packing an attitude there are we?
First thing I did after buying my stickburner was to buy and read Franklin's excellent book (and re-read and re-read and re-read it).
Other than not buying tip top level briskets (heck I don't even like prime grade, they are too fatty) his instructions will yield even a new guy some great brisket, and mine were and are quite tasty.
My wife, thanks for asking, can't stomach too much of any food at any one time and is not a big red meat eating gal anyway.
But enough about me, lets hear about your superior process.

Yes, enlightened one. Please let us in on your process so we may completely disregard all we have learned over many years, many triumphs, many failures, and go right to your proven fail safe method. I could have saved so much money and just waited on you to tell me how? If only I had know. :dont: :dont: :dont:

so let me summarize

the OP is Delusional
His wife is ignorant
and his food is Junk

oh, and Franklin's is what real brisket should taste like but only if you stand in line 5 hours?

the rudeness of this is shocking.

Any food would taste better if I had to stand in a line for hours, heck the foot long corn dogs at the F1 races almost begin to taste like food after waiting in THAT line..

The Day that I stand in line for 5 hours to eat will be the day that Jennifer Nettles is Waiting Tables. :P :D
