OK, I've been reading, and dying to a Brisket. However finding a brisket to cook has been a challenge.
First local supermarkets either had corned beef, or tiny little ones.
So, I went to a local respected butcher, and they wanted 10 a pound for a full packer cut. 150 bucks.
Well today the Mrs. Spoke with the head butcher at A&P, and she got a 7 lb flat in the cryovac. For 5.99 a lb.
Well, being a first brisket, I'm using Elder Wards rub recipe of:
• 4 Tbs Kosher salt
• 4 Tbs raw Hawiian sugar
• 2 Tbs ground Cumin seeds
• 4 Tbs McCormick Chili powder (Chile en polvo oscuro)
• 2 Tbs cracked Black pepper
1 Tbs Cayenne pepper fine ground
• 4 Tbs Hungarian paprika
• 2 Tbs Thyme ground up
Now its wrapped and in the fridge waiting for an early wake up.
