Texas BBQ has four different styles of BBQ. In the East Texas style, the beef is smoked over hickory wood and then the brisket is chopped into fine pieces, like pulled pork style. In the Central Texas style, the meat is smoked over pecan or oak wood and then the brisket is served sliced. In the West Texas style, the meat is smoked over mesquite wood and is also served sliced. The South Texas style depends on how far from the Mexico border you are. Barbacoa, a style of Mexican BBQ is cooked with mesquite wood and is the most common form of BBQ in South Texas. South Texas 'American Style' BBQ is more along the lines of the rest of Texas. All of these types are served with the sauce on the side so that it can be applied as the diner wishes. This recipe is for those who have a smoker to use and if you have the room, feel free to smoke more than one brisket. Freeze the others (leave in foil, just off grill) for later.
