smoked brisket

Post by firedup » November 12th, 2018, 7:18 pm

Bought a smoker a while back and have been doing a few things, ribs, pork butt, ect. Tried my first brisket this weekend and it turned out great! Tender and very juicy but not falling apart. It was a very simple rub recipe for beginners. If you don't like hot and spicy you might want to reduce the cayenne by half or so. Here is what I did.

Used a trimmed 4lb brisket.

Ingredients for rub
2 tablespoons kosher or coarse salt
2 teaspoons coarse black pepper (use fresh cracked pepper)
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon oregano leaves (dried)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon granulated garlic

I generously coated the brisket with a tangy north carolina type musturd sauce (I think oil or your favorite sauce would work fine). Then worked in the rub.
Cooked at 275 for 3 hours uncovered and kept the smoke going with some pecan chips. Placed in a shallow pan with apple juice and covered with foil for 3 more hours of cook time at 275. Uncovered and cooked 2 more hours at 275 till internal temp hit 190. Basting with apple juice a couple times along the way and just a little more smoke. Rested the brisket for an hour before cutting (couldn't wait any longer...I WAS HUNGRY). I am a total rookie at this but I was very pleased with the results.

If anyone wants to share some smoker recipes.....be glad to have them!!

Mine are pretty much all the same. Slather in mustard. Plug in smoker. Pecan chips in foil pack on element. Check back next morning.

Seriously, I'll be typing all day. I bet I have 200 saves on fb dedicated to recipes. Cooking I think has surpassed hunting for me.
One thing I recommend, smoke a meatloaf. Make up your
typical meat loaf, put rub on top, smoke till 150. Cover top in sauce, I hate sweet sauce but love it on this take to 160.

This is always a favorite, grew up on it, your rub will work. Stuff a opossum with carrots, potatoes rice, smoke til 180 at 250. Everyone raves. If you want to smoke in an aluminum pans and use drippings for opossum gravy and make mashed potatoes.

I’ve heard of eating possum before. The Beverly Hillbillies come to mind! :lol:
I don’t doubt you that it’s tasty, but I could never get my self to gut and clean one for the pot. Kinda reminds me of a huge rat.
BTW. Do you know that they have a double headed pecker? The females also have two “receptacles”.
Goes from the way back to ensure insemination.
They are also marsupials.
Nope... Ain’t gonna clean one.. Ain’t gonna eat one...

Pictures, LT.....we need PICTURES to make me salivate even more!!! That brisket sounds good. I'm gonna have to get me a smoker....

And, that picture of the "opossum" is one I've seen lately of a Nutria. I've never eaten Nutria, but a buddy who is the best chef I've ever known says they are absolutely the best meat he's ever had.

That smoked meatloaf sounds pretty good, too!

Getting ready to dive into a brisket "samich" as I read. Man, I haven't eaten possum in YEARS. That and groundhog were 2 of my grannies specialties. I was just a little fellow but I remember her putting the possums in a cage and feeding them for a while. She said "to sweeten him up". LOL

Hoobilly, she did the same with all her critters. She kept her chickens out back, named them and babied them like you wouldn't believe. But when it was time for fried chicken.....off with their heads in a blink. Just as an aside, she also raised rabbits for eating. She had a system. Bucks had a cage. Does had a cage with a nest box for birthing and rearing young. All the juveniles had a cage for fattening up or determining if they were to be the next gen breeders and so forth. The last cage, which all of us kids new as "the death cage", meant that when they got moved into it...we would be eating rabbit soon!
