Texas-Style Brisket


Recipe & picture courtesy of Rachael Ray

SERVES 8
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 4 hr

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • One 6- to 7-pound trimmed beef brisket, patted dry
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  1. Soak 3 cups wood chips in water according to the package directions or for 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix together 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon pepper and the garlic powder; sprinkle all over the brisket.
  2. Remove the racks from the grill. Arrange a large drip pan or disposable baking sheet on one side of the grill to catch the drippings. Drain the wood chips and transfer to a 2-foot-long sheet of heavyduty foil. Wrap tightly, creating a secure pouch, then poke 10 holes in the top to create a smoker box. Place the pouch on the side of the grill opposite the drippings pan. Set the racks in place, close the grill and preheat to 350°.
  3. Arrange the brisket, fat side up, over the drip pan. Grill, covered, turning once, until lightly charred, about 30 minutes. Wrap with a large sheet of heavy-duty foil and return to the grill, fat side down. Lower the heat to 325° and grill until fork-tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. (Be careful when unwrapping the brisket, since there will be lots of juice inside the foil packet.).
  4. In a medium saucepan, bring the beef broth, ketchup, vinegar and hot sauce to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Let the brisket rest, wrapped, for 30 minutes; carefully unwrap and pour the juices into a cup. Thinly slice the meat against the grain, arrange on a platter and pour the juices on top. Serve with the barbecue sauce on the side.
