      Hopefully that was a misstatement. As somebody who's had to smile while choking down ribs somebody threw on the grill until they were "done", I can only imagine what a grilled brisket would taste like!

      But, nice of them to offer anyway!

        They cooked it on their little Weber, snake method.

        So yes, "off the grill" rather than "off the smoker"

        Told it was 6 hours on the weber to 170, then wrapped until it hit 205. Put in cooler for 2 hours , then rested on counter for another hour before sliced and served.

      Verdict:

      A+ for effort
      B+ for execution, taste
      C- for size of sampling portion

      Will need additional samples provided to properly judge consistency

        Absolutely. Can't even draw a line with just one point. More data are needed. Good looking prelim result though!

      Heck we’ve lived in the same house for 19 years. Don’t even know our neighbors names and have never spoken to them. Weird I know. Just like to keep to ourselves I guess. So no surprise brisket for us. 🤷‍♂️

        If he moves next to me I'll "Give" him a brisket knife! Wait wait...maybe that's not a good idea. He might be one upping me on cooks all the time. The house next to us will soon be for sale if any of you want to move to a nice neighborhood with a so so neighbor! Lol.

      My neighbor saved me a few grand by taking a concrete pad from my backyard for free... granted theres still a bit left in the backyard and we only take a few loads a week, but free is my favorite price. Sometimes we swap cooks too. My other neighbors though... kinda wish some of 'em would go away.

        I busted one up from our hot tub and used it as fill when rebuilding a retaining wall.

      So is this his first brisket? If so, you must be a good neighbor for him to want to share his first one with you!

        Still a good thing! Sounds like he values you!

      I will put my neighbors up against your neighbors.

      I am the only one that BBQs on the street. Others grill but not BBQ.

      My neighbor to my right is a roofer. I have never asked him but since I give him a bunch of smoked meets through the year he walks my roof and blows the leaves out of my gutters every year with his back back leaf blower. He has also blown our yard leaves to the curb strip many a time without us asking.

      My neighbor to the right has a snowblower and it’s been years since I’ve shoveled snow from our walk or driveway. Smoked meats somehow makes this happen.

      My neighbor down the street does interior painting for a living. I’ve contracted him many a time to paint ceilings and walls in our house and I am always blown away as to how cheap he does it for. I’m sure smoked meat helps adjust the price down.

      And last but not least the neighbor across the street over there likes to have campfires and drink Labatt Blue. I’m always getting invites and am told there is a 12 pack with my name on it at his house. You can probably guess smoked meat has something to do with this also.

      So in summary, my neighbors are better than your neighbors and that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

      😁

          I prefer neighbors that would say "brisket is done but needs to rest at least 2 hours, so if you head our way, when you get home with it, it should be ready." Me likes privacy.

            Good neighbors are awesome!

            Neighbor we had before this was awesome
            During hurricane Harvey, handed me a Tupperware of brisket over the fence, and returned my dog when he snuck through the fence to guard the smoker.

            I made sure he had enough ice to keep his beer cold.
