The SPOGOS brisket really surprised me. The flavors developed over the long cook were markedly different than Black Ops. The first word that jumped into my mind when I took my first (and subsequent) bites of the SPOGOS brisket was “beefy!”. Not just a whisper of the word, but a James Earl Jones rendition of “beefy!”. The rub is incredibly rich and savory, with so much umami it was almost sensory overload. The first actual flavor I picked up was BIG black pepper, then quickly after a stiff punch of salt; more so than with Black Ops. Then, the savory and umami richness settled in with the black pepper still hanging on well into the finish. It left a pleasant black pepper tingle on my lips and a concentrated salty/smokey/beefy umami flavor on the palate well after I finished eating a piece. It was actually quite remarkable in it’s difference from Black Ops. This is a big, bold rub, and for those who prefer big pepper and salt on their briskets, I think SPOGOS will blow their minds.”
