|• 1 Lines Brisket, point, or flat or whole with fat cap|
|• 1 Clove of Elephant Garlic or several regular cloves of garlic|
|• 1 Lines whole shallot|
|• ½ lb bacon , regular or smoked, your choice.|
|• 4 Tbs Frenches Mustard|
|• ½ Cup or more of either Dales Marinate or Moores Marinate (later courtesy of JJ)|
Next day...remove from wraps and place on paper towel on the counter.
Slice up in thin slices 1 or possibly 2 shallots depending on the size of your brisket. Keep handy in dish.
Slice up 1 or possibly 2 elephant garlic cloves (more if using regular garlic). Keep handy in dish.
Using a very sharp pointed flat blade knife, lay the knife flat against the meat and with a slight angle make pockets in the fat cap. After making each pocket insert a slice of garlic. Do this about every 2 inches in spacings.
Once you have covered the entire fat cap with the garlic pockets, lay on the shallot slices over the garlic layered area.
Then with a squeeze bottle of Frenches..apply a thin coating of mustard, just on the top of this assembly smoothing with your fingers.
Once you have this all in place lay 5 or 6 or more (whatever it takes for your brisket) slices of your favorite bacon longways...Then apply half cut bacon slices over the long one's to make a blanket of bacon. You want the bacon on top to crisp up during the long cook.
Start your BGE with your favorite long cook method. Lay a chunk or two of hickory in the center over the smoldering charcoal.
Do not allow the BGE to gain speed in temps and insert the meat at 150F degrees for a touch of smoke flavor. Increase to 250F after 20 minutes or so.
I set up the grills this way!
Regular grill in place!
3 firebricks for drip pan barrier with a 8 x 11 or larger drip pan, aluminum lined on the bricks.
2 firebricks on edge as far to the edge of the grill as I can place them.
1 additional grill on the two edgways firebricks.
Place the brisket or portion of brisket on the top grill so it is suspended 4 inches or more above the drip pan.
Roast at 250F degrees for a internal temperature of at least 160F degrees in the very thickest part of the brisket.
I found this a very moist sliceable and tender brisket at this stage.
If you wish the tradition brisket, then continue to roast until you reach the 200F degree internal, wrap in foil for a hour and slice away.
I also wrapped in foil at the 165 degree and rested for a hour. Very nice brisket.
Go for it and thanks..
