Have you guys seen the prices of brisket these days? Sure as shit ain't cheap. You're looking at over $7 per pound in some places. You get yourself a 13-14lb brisket and that adds up real quick.
So already, you're pretty financially invested in this piece of meat. Then not only are you going to be spending a bunch of money on it, but you're also going to be investing a ton of time as well. If you're looking to do it the right way, we're talking 12 or 13 hours of your life here is going to be spent on this cook. Making sure everything turns out as close to perfect as you can get it. You want the perfect bark, you want that perfect smoke ring even though the smoke ring doesn't necessarily add anything to the meat, and you want that perfect level of moistness. You spend so much time, energy and money into this piece of meat and when it's finally done what do you do?
Squeeze all the juice out of the meat like an absolute fucking lunatic.
I don't get it. Why would you do such a thing? What would drive a person to desecrate all that time and work they just put in? I mean you did it. You achieved exactly what you were looking to accomplish. And then you ruin it in 5 seconds for what? For the 'gram?
Stop squeezing your meat. Not even once. Don't even think about it. I heard that you go blind if you squeeze your meat too much. Do you want to go blind? Didn't think so. Knock it off.
