I am so excited for our first week to be participating in #SundaySupper! For those of you who are not familiar with it, #SundaySupper is a group of great foodie bloggers who are banding together to try and bring back the idea of family meals together at the dinner table. This is right up our alley as that is one of the most important things Daddy F and I feel we can provide our children - a time when we can all come together everyday as a family and "break bread" and share of our daily activities.
Every week has a theme and in observation of the 4th of July this week we are all talking what you can bring to your family picnic. Here in Texas picnic = BBQ and really no BBQ is complete without some brisket!
Can you believe I once lived in an area where the people didn't know what a brisket was!?! They thought it was like a pot roast!! FOR SHAME!! Dang Yankees (I can say this as I was born near Chicago and the majority of my family are still northerners. But I moved here when I was 5 so really, I am Texan through and through.)!!
- 1/3 cup salt
- 1/3 cup chili powder
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons black pepper
- 2 tablespoons garlic salt
- 1 can (10 1/2 oz) beef consomme
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon paprika
Mix dry seasonings. Slice fat side of brisket down to meat about every inch. Rub brisket liberally with seasonings and place brisket fat side up on a giant sheet of foil or in a roasting pan.
Place brisket on foil onto your smoker/grill (if you do not have a smoker on your grill make sure you are using indirect heat. If you have a gas grill you can place another disposable aluminum pan with the wood chips and a bit of water over the heat to create the smoke flavor). Cook brisket for 8 - 10 hours, brushing with mop sauce every hour.
When brisket it finished you can just slice it and serve it as is with some BBQ sauce. You can roll it up in a tortilla and make tacos. Or you can chop it and mix it with some sauce for sandwiches. Either way this stuff will disappear in the blink of an eye!
Mama F: 10 - I can eat a brisket any time of day any day of the week! This is seriously the main reason I could never be a vegitarian. And even my veggie friends will tell you that this was the hardest thing to give up!
Daddy F: 7 - Not a big fan of big slabs of meat. I know, NOT raised in Texas CLEARLY. But he says that for what it is it good and was moist with a nice smoked flavor.
Fuller Kids: 10 - My darling little born and bred cowgirls make their mama proud by wolfing down this Texan classic.
Lucky the Dog: 12 - Eat every day. Yum. Drool.
