Beef Brisket

2 posts in this topic

Not the pros way but I never have a problem doing it this way.

Actually I will be cooking one all day tomorrow!!

Take the full brisket out of the fridge and place on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet.

Trim most of the fat off the brisket.

This will allow the smoke to enter the meat.

You want some fat left on but not too thick that the smoke can’t enter the meat.

Rub with one bottle of Chef Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic.

Cover the brisket loosely and let it sit on the counter while you get your grill ready. This will allow some of the chill to come out of the meat before placing it on the grill.

I only use lump charcoal

Keep your grill low and slow with indirect heat about 220 deg

Once your grill is up to temp place the brisket in the center of the grill fat side up (or away from the heat source)

Keep the lid on the grill. Only open it to add charcoal and smoke.

I give mine two good smoking’s (3 if I think it needs it).

The first is after about 20 min in the grill you will see that the meat has started to get warm and will take smoke.

Give it one to one and a half handfuls of wood chips (I prefer hickory, use much less if you use mesquite).

Then just let it sit but keep the temp at about 220 never go much over 220 or under 200.

The meat will look really dry on the outside and it will look like it is not going to come out good but it is OK the salt dries the outside and seals the flavor in.

Do not mop the brisket.

After a few hrs you will see the meat start to render as soon as it does take it off the grill and wrap several layers of tinfoil over it to make sure it is sealed.

Then place it back on the grill for 2 to 3 hours more depending if you want to pull it or slice it.

When you feel it is done (you can test it by pushing on the tinfoil to see how it feels)

If you are just starting out use a meat thermometer

Take it out and put it in a large glass baking dish.

Peel the tinfoil away and keep the juices in the dish.

I will only slice my brisket with a meat slicer.

Once it is sliced pour some of the juices over the meat until it is at your desired juicyness.

Then release the hounds.

You will know if it was a good brisket if it is gone in 10 min or less.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
