Beef Brisket

There are 2 "secrets" in grilling a brisket to make it tender and tasty:

 

1).  Choose the "best" brisket and prepare it right

 2).  Slow cooking time

Since we don't sell any meat cuts here at Ask The Meatman we are offering our customers the opportunity to purchase Organic Beef Brisket through Amazon

 

Here's how to choose the "best" brisket for barbequing:

1. A brisket is generally divided into two parts, the flat and the point. For barbecue brisket you will want it undivided. You will also want it untrimmed, also called a "Packer's Cut". This cut will have a strip of fat running through the middle and a layer of fat on the top. The layer on top is called the fat cap. The fat cap is very important, as it will keep the brisket moist while it is smoking. The fat cap should be about 1/3 - 1/4 inch thick.

2. Whatever you buy, try to get a brisket with good marbling, white fat and a deep color in the meat. There should be good fat throughout the meat and not just in one place. Though the fat cap will add moisture to the meat during smoking, the fat spread throughout the meat will be much more effective. If the fat cap is more than 1/3 inch thick you might want to trim it down. It's best to have a single even layer. When smoking you will want the brisket to cook fat side up so that the melting fat will run over the brisket and keep it moist.

3. Before the brisket hits the smoker it needs to be rinsed in lukewarm water, patted dry with paper towels and be at room temperature. If you are going to marinade it should be done for at least 12 hours before you smoke. If you are going to apply a rub it should be done about 30 minutes to an hour before you smoke.

4. To enhance the tenderizing affect of smoking you can marinade the brisket with lemon juice, lime juice, vinegar or any other acid based marinade.
This will help breakdown the tough fibers in the meat and the acid will carry any flavor you add to the marinade deep into the meat.
 Here's an excellent brisket marinade. Marinate your brisket in this over night, but not longer than 24 hours.
 

Texas Barbecued Beef Brisket (on a gas grill)
This recipe courtesy of Iowa Beef Industry Council

1 brisket, 10-12 pounds

1. Trim brisket of excess fat (leave about 1/4” cover). Rub brisket thoroughly with Brisket Seasoning mixture and set aside.

2. Preheat entire gas grill. To obtain a smoky flavor, use a mix of mesquite and hickory wood chips according to your gas grill directions. 

3. Shut off one side of the grill. Use indirect heat. (Which means placing the brisket on the opposite side of the grill from the heat, making sure that it is not above any part of the fire.) Turn the heated side down to low and close the cover. 

4. Grill for about 2-1/2 to 3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 140º F. Apply the “mop” to the brisket (with a brush) occasionally during the cooking period. 

5. Remove the brisket from the grill, cover with favorite barbecue sauce, and wrap tightly in heavy foil. Return to the grill (unheated side) and cook for another 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until the internal temperature is about 200 – 210º F. Rotate the package so that all sides are close to the hot side of the grill for even time periods.

6. Remove the meat from the fire and let rest in the foil for 30 minutes to one hour. 

7. Unwrap and slice across the grain.
