Over time I’ve tinkered a lot with spice rubs, marinades, and even flash brines. I’ve whittled my recipe down to the bare basics so that the meat truly shines through. I tend to hit up my local butcher for a specific cut and size. I cook for a family of four — so a 2 to 3 pound brisket generally does the trick for a Sunday dinner and then some tasty sandwiches going into the next week’s lunches. I like the get a cut of brisket that’s half lean and half streaked with plenty of fat and nice fat cap running along the whole piece. It’s not essential to track down a butcher that’ll make perfect cuts just for you. You can easily grab yourself a nice piece from your local grocery store. Once you have a nice piece of brisket, the rest is pretty straight forward with a succulent end result.
The food this thing produces is just so damn good. Tender, juicy, perfectly cooked perfection, pretty much every single time. I love how portable it is and how little space it takes up in your kitchen (or backpack). The clamping mechanism feels very solid, and it's wide enough to accommodate a lot of different sized containers. It's truly almost completely silent. The display is very easy to read and the temperature is very easy to set. I also found it maintained temperature extremely well. Once it was up to temp, the most I ever saw it vary was by degrees F, and usually only for a quick moment. Impressive.
