Smoked Beef Brisket Using The Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker

We hear it everyday from our Personal Trainers or workout buddies... "eat more protein!" But it's not always that easy to come up with original high protein recipes. If you're a cardio fanatic focused on weight loss and losing some belly fat, or a serious gym rat looking to pack on slabs of muscle this is sound advice! Meal bar replacements and protein shakes are great quick fixes but they don't take the place of a hardly, nutritional meal... enter your crockpot!

Also, from 4-7 at Rockfish you can also get all appetizers half off. Think of it like an awesome little "Happy Hour." While all the food at Rockfish is delicious, this week I recommend an appetizer that isn't on the menu anymore (but they'll make it if you ask!). Try the Brisket Nachos with your Lagunitas. The strong Belgian ale pairs really well with the smoky flavor of the brisket. The crispy tortilla chips are topped with slow cooked beef brisket crock pot, ancho cream sauce, cheese, black beans, fresh jalapeno, and cilantro! And during the half price appetizer time, they're only $4.95! And if you don't like brisket, or don't eat red meat, Rockfish also offers some delicious other appetizers like Volcano Shrimp and Spinach Dip.

I will go into more depth about controlling the fire in coming pages but ideally you'd like to smoke the brisket at an average temperature of 200 degrees. It can fluctuate but try to keep it in this window.

Now for slow cooking brisket TOMATO CONFIT: cut the skinned tomatoes in half and seed them. Then cut the halves into wedges. Place them in a small slow cooking brisket and sprinkle them with chopped fresh thyme, slivered fresh garlic, salt and pepper. Then drizzle them with olive oil. Cover and cook them on LOW heat for 6-7 hours or until they are meltingly tender but still hold their shapes. If you like you can also cook them on HIGH heat for 3-4 hours and you'll get the same result.

Then, I cook them all day in the oven at a low temperature. To keep them moist and full of flavor I drench them in sauce and wrap them tightly in heavy duty aluminium foil. If you only have regular foil you can just double it.

There are tons out there beef brisket flat cut some if worked properly can be very financially rewarding. The key is to find something you truly enjoy. Then, more importantly than anything else, treat your business just like a business.

The slow cooking beef treatments then need you to add the broth dust, tomato place and a touch of salt to taste. The mixture should be stirred for a few times. The cup of water should then be added into the mixture. The slow cooker treatments then need that the mixture is stirred constantly. This mixture should be progressively eventually left for about 30 minutes until it is wide and darker. The coffee bean should be offered and then the mixture stirred sometimes for about 10 times.

I finished with two cheese pairings. When tasted with a marbled cheddar, the Dolcetto had harsh acidity. Then I tried a sheep's milk feta cheese. This time things went better. The wine was round and fairly long. Its fruit wasn't bad.

This year the Bash also welcomes a variety of local & regional artists to the Maryland State BBQ Bash. Please visit The Bash Gallery on Thomas Street. If you come earlier on Saturday before 12 noon you can participate in the Bel Air Farmers Market that is celebrating 35 years!
