in BBQ Recipes, Beef


1 (5- to 6-pound) beef brisket flat, fat left on
1 cup Big Cow Beef Injection
1/2 cup Big-Time Barbecue Rub


A couple of hours before you plan to start cooking, inject the Big Cow Beef Injection into the brisket using a food-grade syringe, inserting the syringe in several different places.

Season the brisket with the Big-Time Barbecue Rub as heavily as you can by pressing it into the surface of the meat.

Prepare your cooker for indirect cooking at 275°F, using pecan wood for flavor. Arrange the brisket fat side down and cook for 1 hour. Flip the brisket over and continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the meat registers 160°F.

This should take 3 to 4 hours.

Wrap the brisket tightly in a double layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil and return to the cooker. After another hour, begin checking the internal temperature. When it reaches 200°F, remove the brisket and let it rest, wrapped in foil, for 30 minutes.

Sauce each side lightly with Big-Time Barbecue Sauce or your favorite commercial sauce, and serve.
