Fixed up a smoked brisket for my wife's work Christmas party lunch.
When I picked out my brisket in noticed it was left-handed (from the left side).
There are stories here in Texas that briskets from the left side are more tender than the right.
Don't know if it is true, but it was a mighty tender brisket and a big hit at my wife's work.

Here are some pics

Looks like it could have used more salt.:D

Great job on the photography!

Since it's Texas, the left vs. right deal might be some NASCAR thing. The steers must not use the left brisket as much going though the turns. :D

Beauty! Hmm, might be odd, but I am suddenly hungry.

Ha! Makes as much sinse as them resting on their left side...

What's in the seasoning? It looks damn delicious.

I used olive oil, beef base and john henry pecan rub.
