Brisket and beer?

Postby Mbf150 » Fri Sep 04, 2015 10:59 pm

I, like many of you guys seem to do, pull my brisket off at 160 or so then add 1/2 cup of beef broth (or whatever) then wrap in foil and finish cooking. My question is have you guys tried replacing broth with a dark beer?

I don't do much brisket :dont: but I do like my beer butted birds (scheduled for Tomorrow) and I've used Brew in my Finishing and Basting Sauces with decent results. Gonna be interesting to see what the :chef: Brisket Mob :chef: says about this. Good Luck and Happy Cooking :salut:

My Dad used to baste his brisket with a beer, garlic, onion, and a few other things I can't remember, basting sauce. Then he'd add some of it when he wrapped it. It was awesome!

That sounds pretty good! I usually inject mine with a little beef broth a few hours before I cook it and use Fiesta brand brisket rub with freshly chopped garlic. Tonight I injected the brisket with a scotch style ale beer. It's like a citrus style guiness, I also rubbed it with the same rub and garlic. I finished up my smoker modification a little while ago. It's pretty much a uds. Hoping things turn out good for tomorrow. Starting to cook at 3:00a.m.

No bueno for BBQ! I wrap in Butcher paper I add nothing, if I want pot roast I'd cook it in the oven and braise it in stock.
Never met a cow I didn't like with a little salt and pepper.
