West Texas Barbeque Co. in Jackson, Michigan. 27 years and counting. Recently named Michigan's Best BBQ by Mlive.com. Dry rubbed, the brisket cooks over 15 hours using oak. No trimmed fat cap, cooked at 180 degrees.

I believe their is no such thing as "best brisket" as we know it outside of Texas. I will say that I had some good burnt ends in St Louis, some decent smoked brisket in Nashville and Boston, and just to be difficult I had a great pastrami (hey it is brisket!) sandwich at Katzs Deli in NY (please don't revoke my Texan status for saying that)
True brisket is found in Texas.
