    Here is your Christmas present. Santa Happy Holidays!

    Beef, Brisket, Sugar Coated, Uncle Dave

    Five hours total cook time and you can cut this with a plastic fork! Served 8 for lunch today and they just couldn't believe it. It was the finest brisket anyone would want.


    Ingredients:
    3-5 lb Brisket
    1/4 cup favorite rub
    2 cups white sugar
    1 can beer
    1 onion




    Directions:
    1 Coat Brisket with rub of choice over night.
    2 Next morning, pour 2 cups of white sugar over brisket. Hard to do but trust me. That night all sugar will have disappeared.
    3 Put on BGE Fat down 250 one hour.
    4 Then put in a v rack in drip pan, 1 hour more 250.
    5 Take brisket off and set it on a double sheet of foil. Form the edges into a crude bowl.
    6 Pour 2/3 of a beer on meat
    7 Slice an onion and throw it on too.
    8 Close top up with a third piece of foil.
    9 Return to grill for 3 hours at 200.


    Servings: 1

    Sounds great but not sure I'm getting the timing right between applying the sugar and cooking. How long does the sugar remain on the meat? TIA~~
  • Richard FlRichard Fl Posts: 8,125
    I have never done it this way, but my guesstimate is that the sugar dissolves with the liquid of the brisket and it all settles in the beer and onion in the end.

  • Richard,

    Do you think old Dave leaves the sugar on the brisket and back in the fridge for 'x' hours more, then cooks later in the day, or does he put the sugar on just before cooking?

    It is a little confusing. :huh:

    My guess would be put the sugar on and let it rest while the Egg is stabilizing, then put on for the first stage of the cook.
  • To you too Brother!

    My guess is he puts the sugar on in the am and starts the cook within the hour????

    I remember CWM posting about covering a brisket with white sugar. Never tried it myself.

    Come up to Cincinnati. They have a pallet or two of RO at RD.

    More Head Country in the morning.
    Put on at 12:30. Fat side down. 250.

    1:30 flipped.
    4:30 wrapped in foiled with (mixed in side) Liptons Beefy Onion soup mix/ 1 cup warm water/ 1 TBPS Cayenne pepper.
    Internal temp was 165 when wrapped.
    Pulled a 209 because guests were to entertaining.
