My DH loves to use the smoker and as you can see from the picture, it’s seen better days but it still works great!
We’ve smoked lots of different things but our favorite is beef brisket. It’s easy to do and really a hands off cut of meat so there’s not much fuss. I recently found this recipe in a magazine put out by the Deen brothers and it’s really very, very good. So if you like to smoke, give it a try.
Smoky Rub for Brisket
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients until well mixed.
Smoked Beef Brisket
1 (5lb. ) flat cut beef brisket
Hickory wood chips
Smoky herb rub
Soak wood chips in water for at least 45 minutes before smoking.
Start up your smoker and let it get to between 225º and 250º and then sprinkle the chops over the coals.
Rub the smoky rub all over the meat and wrap in aluminum foil. Cook on the smoker, covered, for 5 hours or until very tender.
Let stand 30 minutes before slicing.
Makes at least 10 to 12 servings.
