Smoked Corned Beef Brisket Video

grussemgrussem Posts: 96
Hey all, I just uploaded a new video to my youtube channel on smoking a corned beef brisket.  It's the first corned beef brisket I did on the egg.  The only thing I will do different next time is soak it longer as it was a bit too salty.  Anyhow, watch, enjoy and subscribe.  My channel is in its infancy and I will be adding more as time goes on.

    Great video. I love the musical additions. I would add some transitions to your edits, perhaps explaining what you are going to do next(like the FTC part).

    Where are you from? I hear Chicago but I see San Jose.

    Thanks for the tips! Actually I was born and raised in Philly, joined the USMC and after 8 years active duty settled in Monterey County CA.  I'm still slowly learning how to do the whole iMovie thing to make my videos better.  I'm a die hard Philly fan (they're my #1 teams) but I also love my NEW local teams (Sharks, A's, 49ers).

    My bad. Don't know why I heard a Midwest accent.
  • Nice work! The Benny Hill music brought me back a few years.

    Looks good. As you found out, those corned beef briskets are really salty. If you haven't checked out Thirdeye's pastrami I'd recommend it: http://playingwithfireandsmoke.blogspot.com/1996/05/beef-pastrami.html

    I soak mine for 30-48 hours with a potato cut into quarters (the potatoes help to soak up the salt). Your post reminds me that I haven't cooked one of these in a while!

    Thanks for the tip about the potatoes to help absorb the salt. I wi ll have to check out the link you posted. Thanks for the tip! 
  • You can also put it into a fresh bath of water halfway through - that will make a big difference.

    Hehe. Hehe. You say "pecan" funny. Joking aside, I enjoyed the video. I generally soak mine for 2-3 days, changing the water out once or twice a day. Try that next time and it won't be too salty. Haven't tried @R2Egg2Q potato trick, but makes perfect sense.
