Bringing a possible misprint to your attention

After reading "The Best Recipe for a Tender Brisket, According to a Butcher" I was going over the recipe and noted that the ingredients list, like the article, called for a neutral oil. The article made the point "Don’t use olive oil, because it will burn before it gets hot enough to sear." In Step 2 of the directions in this recipe call for the cook to "Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a wide, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven. Sear the brisket until a nice crust appears, about 4 minutes per side." An unsuspecting home cook might not catch this before the smoking starts. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for all the great content I continue to enjoy on the Food52 platform.

Thanks so much, JD! We've since changed this from olive to neutral oil.
