#Denver and #Westminster Folks, if you are craving great barbecue you can still get it delivered from my friends at @gquebbq via @doordash or you can order it online and go pick it up curbside. The latter might be a nice break from staring at the four walls inside your house. Take a drive, roll down the windows (if the weather is nice) and just take in the world around you. I think all of us are going to appreciate the little things like that more from now on. As for this platter, I'm starting with the smoked turkey. Seriously. That is one of my favorite things to order at BBQ restaurants. Simply because I don't make it very often and I can tell a lot about a BBQ joint by the smoked turkey. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿฅ’๐ŸŒญ There is a coupon on gque.com for a free sando so go get some great BBQ and some great FREE BBQ ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿฅ’๐ŸŒญ Stay healthy.

Brisket is a beef cut that comes from the cow’s breast. It’s tough and inexpensive, but it can be cooked to become tender and delicious. Brisket is a large piece of meat that can weight up to eight pounds.

The best cooking method for brisket includes low heat and long cooking time. Braising, smoking, and brining are some great options for preparing brisket. Depending on the cooking method, it can take from three to 12 hours to be ready.

The taste of brisket depends on the cooking method. Brined or smoked brisket will have specific flavors very different from braised brisket. Try a few options to see which one you like the most.

Are you going to try cooking your own brisket? Even though it may sound a bit intimidating, the result is definitely worth the effort!
