brisketYum, yum.  There's just nothing better than barbecue brisket!

I know that I'm a little late sharing this secret to making a great barbecue brisket since we're well past July 4th but, we do have Labor Day fast approaching so here you go....

First of all, you must find a brisket that is tender.  You can tell if it's tender by picking it up on one end.  If it goes limp or flops downward, you have a winner.  If it sticks straight out, it's going to be tough.

istock_000001178128medium_400Living on Lake Conroe is so much fun!  Watching the boats and jet skis fly by is so exciting!  Hearing the roar of the jet boats as they skim across the water is thrilling!  Oh the laughter, conversations, and activities we are able to hear and see living on the lake are simply wonderful.

The lake level is down.  Full pool for Lake Conroe is 201.  July 3rd's level was 197.84. That may not sound like much off the full pool level but it is when you look out across the lake .  You can see lake bottom that probably hasn't seen the light of day since the lake was created in the 1970's.
