I got into smoking meat a couple of years ago, and just love it! Due to my disabilities, I have not been able to cook much, but the last few days I have gotten back into it slowly. I bought a new Cajun Injector Electric Smoker to make things easier for me. This Brisket was to die for! Delicious, juicy, moist, and as tender as it comes! Enjoy :)

  • 5Wash the brisket, then lay it with fat side up. Score it on the diagonal.
