Texas Style Beef Brisket

Texas-Style Beef Brisket

Some say you can tell what region a Southerner hails from solely based on their preference in barbecue. Every self-respecting Texan will tell you one thing: in the Lonestar state, brisket is king. Seasoned with just the right amount of salt and pepper, our Texas Style Beef Brisket is smoked to perfection.

Ingredients
  1. Mesquite wood chips
  2. 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  3. 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  4. 1 (9-pound) flat-cut beef brisket, fat trimmed to 1⁄8 inch
Instructions
  1. Soak wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat smoker to 225° to 250°. Sprinkle soaked mesquite chips over coals.
  3. In a small bowl, combine salt and pepper. Spread rub over all sides of brisket. Place brisket, fat side up, in a disposable roasting pan. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  4. Cook, with smoker lid closed, for 5 hours. Remove brisket from pan, discarding pan, and wrap brisket in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Return brisket to smoker, and cook, with smoker lid closed, until meat is very tender, 4 to 6 hours longer. Let stand for 30 minutes before slicing. Serve with the sauce of your choice.
