BEEF BRISKET COOKED IN ELECTRIC SMOKER

BEEF BRISKET COOKED IN ELECTRIC SMOKER
HOW I RUINED A $30 PIECE OF MEAT

Took out my MasterBuilt Electric Smoker and attempted my first Smoked Beef Brisket.  Picked up a nice Brisket at Costco for around $30 and followed a recipe I found on the internet.  Put a dry rub on the Brisket and then wrapped it in plastic and refrigerated overnight.  At 6:00 am, I got my smoker up to 225 degrees and placed the Brisket inside.  The recipe I had said to smoke for 8 hours.  After 7 hours I decided to take a look at my Brisket and was surprised to find that it was overcooked and pretty dried out.  Rats.....my first Beef Brisket attempt went bad because I did not monitor the cooking process.  While the meat still had good flavor it was a little dry so I cut it up into small pieces and added a bunch of BBQ Sauce.  Simmered over low heat and the stuff actually tasted pretty good.  Good enough to serve up as Beef Brisket sandwiches.

  1. They were probably done at 5 1/2 hours but I kept them going longer. They were cooked through, thebestgrillsever.com/best-portable-infrared-grill
