    On a gas grill!!! :eek:

    FAGGOT!!! Cry the purists. You can't cook a brisket on a gas grill.

    Sure you can.

    This link provides some good overall info regarding briskets:

    http://www.amazingribs.com/recipes/beef/texas_brisket.html

    I've made a wet rub with the following:

    olive oil
    mustard
    brown sugar
    chopped serrano peppers
    chopped fresh rosemary
    chopped garlic
    chopped cilantro
    parsley
    salt
    ground black pepper
    garlic salt, seasoned salt, chili pepper, cumin, coriander, crushed bay leaves, etc.

    Flat side rubbed in:

    On the grill, point (fat) side up, with soaked apple and hickory chips for smoking

    We will cook this at 250 degrees, off the flame, for about 10- 12 hours. I will wrap in foil after about 4 hours to keep it moist

    Progress pics will be forthcoming

    I did a 17 pounder two weeks ago on my charcoal smoker - 14 1/2 hours and I used the Texas crutch that he describes.

    That's one of the best BBQ web sites I've found. I read it all the time.
