  1. He doesn't reveal all his secrets though. Where is the brisket from, SRF? How long does the brisket rest for in its own dripping sealed in the butcher paper and at what temp? These guidelines will make an amazing brisket just not on Aaron's level. Guess I can't blame em

  2. Hello Franklin I don't have a smoker but I do have a grill that is ran on propane. Would I use the same temps to cook a brisket on a regular grill? I'm a beginner but I was always taught that good instructions can help anybody. My brother use to do all the bbq but he passed so I'm trying to pick up the torch.

  3. Hi, I'm new at using a smoker and I have trouble controlling the temperature. How do I keep it at a certain temperature because it keeps getting too hot or not enough heat. Any suggestion anyone?

  4. Can I use his method in the oven? Going to rent a beach house but there's no smoker so I want to know if I can cook a brisket at 275 for 8 hours in the oven. If not then what's the best way to do it? Please and thanks!

  5. love the video straight points not all the other b.s.. I want to smoke two briskets this weekend. Does any body. know how long that will take does the cook time double ? any thing will help thanks..

  6. I've been cooking brisket for a while, with great results. Cooking just the flats was a lot easier on the wallet and gave me great practice. The packers are a blast to cook, and I must say, I got the knack, there's never any left over. Watching Aaron's videos has helped me tweak my methods and really dial it in to near perfection. If this man tells it, you can bank on it. He really knows whats up. Thanks Aaron. I love ya brotha. Smoke on !

  7. Been to Franklin's twice. First time I got in line around 11:00am and it was sold out by 1:30pm and I still had 20 people in front of me.

    Showed up the second time around 10:00am and got to eat. A…M….A….Z…I…N….G!

    There is a reason he is ranked #1 in America.
