Marinating is really a great way to make sure your smoked brisket remains tender and juicy. This overnight marinade will start the tenderizing process and work a lot of flavor into the meat. The best method here is to get a resealable bag large enough to hold the brisket and to make sure you get all the air out of the bag before you seal it.
