When selecting a brisket or brisket piece, select one with the top deckle attached. That layer of fat and well marbled meat will give immense flavor to your finished roast. As you carve your smoked brisket, try to serve both top well marbled pieces along with the lean bottom pieces in each sandwich.There are many different types of home smokers. There are solid wood, wood chip and pellet models. Cooking/smoking times may vary. I find 190 degrees F to be the best temperature for this recipe. I use classic brown sauce in my barbecue sauce; however, a jar of already prepared brown gravy works well as a time saving substitute.
