Barbeque Beef Brisket~

We try and not eat very much pork around here, so we really enjoy having this bbq. It's a little more work than picking some up from Whitt's, but I just make it in bulk and then grab a bag out of the freezer when we want barbeque. It is adapted from Don't Panic, Dinner's In The Freezer!

Barbeque Beef Brisket

**This is a little tricky, measuring wise. I will list the amounts for what it gives as 2 servings, but once it is made, just bag up however much you think your family would eat at a time.


*8 lbs beef brisket (this is definitely cheaper if you can get it from Sams or Costco) (can substitute chuck steak, but I've never done this.)

*1/4c.+ liquid smoke

*2tsp crushed bay leaves (I always have whole, so I just tear them up into little pieces.)

*1/4c. chili powder

*1T. pepper

*1T. salt

*several bottles of your favorite barbeque sauce, depends on how saucy you like your barbeque


**Combine salt, pepper, chili powder, and bay leaves in a small bowl.

**Rub meat completely with liquid smoke.

**Place meat, fat side up, in large roasting pan. (I think I usually use 2 9x13 cake pans.)

**Sprinkle dry seasoning mixture on top. Cover tightly.

**Bake for approximately 4 hours at 325 degrees.

**Scrape seasoning and fat off meat. Cut in very thin slices across the grain or shred.

**Mix with barbeque sauce of choice.

**Freeze in desired portion sizes. I freeze in quart size freezer bags.

Are you still planning to attend Jackson Park on Sunday? Lord willing, ZK and I will be there.
Hope you see you.

This sounds delicious. I'm always looking for easy dinner/freezing ideas. Thanks for the recipe.

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
