Default Great start to Memorial Day weekend-It's called Brisket!!

I posted to the "Plans for Memorial Day" thread... Said I was gonna do a couple briskets. I gotta tell y'all a little story about it! Well, a couple years ago a buddy of mine (who is not a TBH'er) got a new stick burner and he asked me if I'd ever done briskets. I told him of course and I've got the greatest recipe every for them. He asked me to send it to him. Well what I sent him was "Jason's Brisket Without Pictures"... AKA "Smart's" brisket recipe. I may have asked him how it turned out back then, but don't really even remember... As we more seasoned folks are prone to do, I never thought about it again... Fast forward to a couple weeks ago... He and I went to the lease mid-week to have a load of cottonseed delivered. We stayed a few days to fill feeders, mow, weedeat, get some work done. As we usually do, whoever is coming along we usually pitch in and bring a meal or two each to cover everyone... One of his meals was some brisket he'd done up and cut into single meal size chunks and vacuum sealed and frozen... He thawed it out, put it in a pan covered with foil and slapped it in the oven... I told him after the meal, "Mike, I think that was about the best brisket I've ever had!" While we were eating, he told me he had a recipe he got somewhere and he just followed it to a "tee". I told him, "Man, I gotta have that recipe!! Well, Thursday when I told him about picking up a couple briskets to do for Memorial Day weekend, he said, I'll send you the recipe you asked me for... Shortly after I got an email with an attachment. When I opened the attachment, it was a one page document, "Jason's Brisket Recipe Without Pictures"!!! Son of a gun, I'd clean forgot about sending that to him! I text him back and told him, I should have known it, Jason is the King of TBH when it comes to smokin' n grillin!!


I put two big suckers on this morning about 8:30 AM after my fire got "right"...

Family said, "That's the best brisket you ever did!!" I'd have to agree...


Thanks Smart!!

Looks like life is getting back to normal on the prairie with those good looking briskets. They look tasty.

Who do we need to pay or beg for the recipe? Smarts Jerky was a hit with family and friends! Can only imagine how the brisket turns out.

Hahahaha Thank you!



Anybody that wants what Charlie is referencing, send me a PM WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS and I'll forward it to you. It is a word document. You'd be surprised how many folks forget the email address so I put it in capital letters..

I think I got everybody via PM today.

I forgot to add to the first of my email that to keep in mind the how-to is written in detail for folks just starting out. ...... so take the detail for what it’s worth when you read it depending on how well versed in brisket you are. I have a lot of folks who are just starting out ask for a how to so I put something together for them. They liked the pic results and wanted a step by step. As we know there are 100 ways to get it accomplished and everybody has their preferences, These are just mine. I'm no Aaron Franklin..

I don't go into great detail with specific rubs because I like kosher salt and black pepper mostly.. . I might top the S&P with a little garlic salt or even a light dusting of my favorite rub to change it up but 9.5 times out of 10 its kosher salt and coarse black pepper. Thanks Charlie for the extra work on my birthday. lol...

Well B'day boy, I hope you had a good un! I sliced one flat and chopped the point, then cut the other flat up into 3 big hunks and chopped that point too. All vacuum sealed and stored away for those quick weekend runs to the deer lease... Was gonna do some ribs today, but weather might not allow for that... Been just slicing the ribs up into 2 rib pieces and deep frying them lately... Ain't a bad way to do 'em and they're ready in 30 minutes!!

The most important thing about Smart's instructions for those of you who got 'em... in order to cook a brisket (or any other large piece of meat) is cook by temperature NOT time! Make sure you have good thermometers for cooking! Takes ALL the guessing out of it!
