The smoked beef brisket at BrisketTown, 12/1/12. Note the thick smoke ring and the moistness of the meat. Smoked 12 to 16 hours.
This week Counter Culture traipses in to BrisketTown, Dan Delaney's new brisket-focused barbecue, spawned in Williamsburg via a number of pop-up single day barbecue events called BrisketLab this past summer. I decided to use this as an opportunity to dredge as many photos of NYC briskets as I could find. Can you tell just how good a brisket is with only a photo? Decide for yourself!
