I declare this DQT (Dumb Question Time)

edited 11:25AM in EggHead Forum
Having been an egger for over one year now next Friday will be my first attempt at a brisket. I have collected a number of posts about "how to" but not one goes on to say what you do with the final result! Is it cut and then shredded like pulled pork and served in a sandwich or is it a entree to be served with smashed tators and the like? If in a sandwich is it served with BBQ sauce or does it have a taste of its own not to be tainted with BBQ? ^oo^~

    one feral kat,
    It depends on where your from, some load up the sanwich with coldslaw, others fill it with Q sauce & still other like me serve it with ( i know no class ) plain old mustard on a grilled butterd bun. All of the above have been sliced not pulled. JMO.[p]Earl

    one feral kat,
    Last sunday, I pulled one and served it with baked potatoes covered with sauted onions and mushrooms. I did the brisket, potatoes and onions in seperate eggs. A three egg meal. My wife liked it so much that I have to do it again this weekend. The beef was marinated with wine, pinapple juice and teriyaki sauce. Enjoy

    Don't forget any left overs! They make wonderful beef tamales!

    one feral kat,[p]Oops, sorry for the blank post....[p]A Texas style brisket is sliced across the grain and served with or without sauce. I prefer no sauce because if the brisket is adequately seasoned and cooked, the taste is heavenly by itself.[p]Sometimes I chop up some of the leftovers and us it for sandwiches, or my current favorite, brisket tacos.[p]The egg cooks briskets better than any other smoker. I usually keep the temp as close to 200 as I can and cook until the internal temp reaches 195.[p]Good Luck,

    Leftover (chopped up into little pieces) brisket is also great in baked beans.
