    Beef Brisket Recipe?

    Hi all. I'm looking to cook up a beef brisket for lunch this Sunday. I do not have a smoker. Does anyone have any recipes/suggestions on how to cook it? My only options are my Weber gas grill or the oven. Last time I made one, I used the oven and it turned out alright, but I forgot how I made it.

    I do mine with a rub in a smoker (fat side up) for a few hours and then wrap in foil and finish in the oven at 250 degrees. Total cook time is probably 8 to 10 hours.

    I do the same but have been using a crock pot lately instead. It seems to break down the tuffness of the meat a little better. I just put enough water in it to steam it, but not have it saturated.

    Ditto, like the crock pot method better.

    So your smoking it for probably about 6 hrs, then about 2 hrs in the oven.

    Re: Beef Brisket Recipe?

    I'm doing one in the smoker tomorrow. I usually do pork (ribs, shoulder, etc) and have had limited experience/success with brisket.

    I'll report back (only if its good of course).

    Nope, other way around. I'll give it smoke for 2 hours at around 300 degrees then I'll place it on foil, give a sprinkle of sea salt and pour half a bottle of beer over it, wrap it up and put it in a 250 degree oven for 6 to 8 hours.

    I'll smoke it for about 4-6 hours. Depends on how much time i have and how hot the coals are. I usually just smoke it til it has a nice dark char on it, not burned or anything, but just a typical grilling crust.

    Then I'll have it in the crock pot another 4-6 hours. It seems like it needs to be oven all day just to get it decently soft. I like it borderline shredding.

    Re: Beef Brisket Recipe?

    Here is a rough guide. Basically equal amounts of sugar and salt plus spices. You should feel free to modify this based on your tastes and cooking results. Keep track of what you like. This rub is great on beef and pork.

    1/2 C White sugar *
    1/2 C Salt (garlic, celery, onion, seasoned, Kosher(non-iodine)
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne powder
    1 tsp lemon peel or orange peel
    1 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp ground clove

    * if you want to use brown sugar - use twice the amount of brown sugar you are substituting (eg. 1/4 C white + 1/2 C brown)

    Re: Beef Brisket Recipe?

    My rub is 1/4 cup paprika and brown sugar, 3 Tablespoons of black pepper and kosher salt, 2 teaspoons each of cayenne pepper, celery seed, garlic salt, and onion powder. I use it on chicken and pork shoulder. I put the rub on the day before in a a plastic bag. Only use charcoal Weber with indirect heat. Shoulder for 6 - 8 hours and chicken for 2 hours. Use hickory wood chips.

    You have to be careful with the sugar as that is what burns.

    This keeps for a couple months in the pantry.
