    Brisket Secret not for a Traeger

    Fat on the fire in the offset.

    It makes sense ... and is undoubtedly why barrel smokers like the PBC are so effective (Noah's "flavor fog" from fat dripping onto the coals) and why a gasser can make such tasty burgers, etc., as long as there is plenty of fat dripping onto smoking-hot "flavorer bars" (Weber) or whatever other manufacturers call them. Fat on the fire ... who'd a'thunk it?

    Edit: I don't know about a Traeger ... but it should be possible to make it work on a Grilla OG by setting a small metal container (or a foil smoke pouch) with the fat in it on the little shield on the bottom of the main deflector. Might just have to give this a try ... perhaps with some nice, fatty bacon (before investing in Wagyu tallow) ... .

      I saw this yesterday. It was the second YouTube video I saw this week that suggested putting beef fat on the fire amped up the flavor of the brisket. The first was Robby Robinson (aka Chud's BBQ) https://youtu.be/Z2aD16zFP8E

      I also asked Jeremy Yoder (in the comments) if this made a mess out of his firebox and he replied "No, all the fat just burns up".

      I guess it's worth a try

        Chud's BBQ is a little over the top but has good information.

      I do something similar with chicken trimmings on the kettle. Learned that from Dave Parrish (for those of you relatively new here, that's the now-owner of SnSGrills.com who used to rub shoulders with us here). Place chicken fat & trimmings on the coals, a few at a time. Keep doing it incrementally until you run out. Stinks to high heaven but it works magic on the chicken!

      I might have to try this on my next brisket cook (on Black Friday, who's with us?). I don't care for the taste of a brisket on the PBC, so I will be anxious to see how much of a difference this really makes in the end product so many hours later, pro or con or nill.

        Mmmm -sizzle, sizzle, smoke, and sizzle. And to think I was tempted to use a pan in my Bronco.
