I smoked my second brisket of the year a couple of weeks ago as a special request of my in-laws (former residents of Austin) who were coming into town for the evening. I went ahead and bought two tips instead of a whole. It was a total of 14 pounds. Even with 9 people and slicing off a good two pound portion for my brother-in-law to use for lunch sandwiches, my son and I were able to eat brisket for lunch for the week. Two words for great brisket leftovers: brisket fajitas.

Yeah, I was hoping to smoke the briskets the whole time but started the smoker too late. I had to wrap in foil and finish in the oven. This is how I usually cook these. The briskets turn out fine, but last year I did one in the smoker the whole time and the differences were marked.
