A dish that is very popular in the USA for pot roasting and smoking.
Brisket is a cheaper cut than prime beef and has a marble effect which helps keep the meat moist during long periods of barbecuing.
To start, we rubbed the top fat and sides of the brisket joint with the BBQ spice rub and black pepper. The joint was left to stand for about an hour while we prepared the BBQ.
When the charcoal was ready, a mixture of apple and cherry wood was added to smoke tin and placed carefully on the white hot charcoal. In about ten minutes the woodchips began to smoke.
This is the right time to add the beef brisket to the BBQ, so that it will smoke seal.
After 4 hours at a temperature of 100ºC the brisket was basted with virgin olive oil to stop it from drying out.
Using a charcoal starter the coals were replenished.
A further 2 hours and the water bowl was removed and the brisket was wrapped in silver foil. this helped increase the cooking temperature due to the outside temperature being only 8ºC.
After the full 8 hours the foil was removed brisket was ready to eat.
