Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
By the way, as many of you cooks and barbeque fiends will recognize, brisket is also the staple of good ole American barbeque. Instead of brining (or corning) the beef, the expert barbeque chef will add spices or a marinade and slow cook it for hours.   Again, it goes back to people trying to find a way to make a tough cut of meat palatable. The cooks on the range during the 1800's helped create the recipe for smoked brisket.
