the Whole Brisket
8/27/05, 6:31am

OK, ever since getting this food injector thing and trying it on sections of brisket, I have wanted to do an entire slab (of brisket). So, today is my first chance!

My cousin and her family are going to come over today, and I am going to be the brisket cook!

First..have to trim off all the fat. Then I have to make my "injector" fluids. I am thinking...Beef stock, Worchester sauce, some liquid smoke, a little chipoltle sauce, some beer (alcohol helps to break down the meat), and of course..a drop or two of Dave's Insanity Sauce.

Gonna pump that into the meat and then put on a dry rub (I get this rub at Smart & Final...lots of good stuff and no crap..and VERY tasty). I then put it in my oven as low as my oven gets (175) and let it set for about 7 hours.

In the last hour, I take it out and "sauce" it up with some BBQ sauce. (I start with KC Masterpiece and then add some stuff to it! A lot of same stuff that I put in the meat will be in the sauce as well.)

I am sure it will be great to eat..but it also is gonna stink my house up nicely!

Oh, it was the best! I DO indeed have leftovers but my cousin's family really enjoyed the meat, as well they LOVED my sauce. (I make a "special" sauce that I put on meat. I MAY have shared it here..but that's another post anyway.)


Only thing is, I need help with my table salt. I went away from the Morton's thing because it is TOO salty. I have a sea-salt, which tastes a LOT better, but the pieces are too big. I am thinking that I need a salt grinder, similar to my pepper grinder.

For a brisket, you really DO need LOTS of time for it to come out tender. My rule of thumb is, 4 hours, 350..and go back from there...so 6 hours, mabye 220 or so. Yesterday I did NINE hours at 170. Came out great..and the house smelled great all day too!

Also, kosher salt works good too, but you will need a grinder for it also.

Due to my high blood pressure, I can't have much salt. So, we mainly season with garlic, onions, and Emeril's spices.

Had a good tri-tip salad tonight at Stonefire Grill..Great place.

First off, kosher salt I use in the kitchen, but it takes a higher temp for it to dissolve so it doesn't work that well at the table.

Second, they have done a ton of studies on salt and they are finding that, unless you have a sensitivity to salt..which most of us don't have..that it makes no real difference in blood preassure and has NOT been linked to heart disease.

Hey, listen to your doctor, but...also check out the latest in studies.

Personally I dont think any of us need to load up on salt. It retains water...as I understand it and isnt good for us in large quantities. I dont even have a box of salt in the house. Just one salt shaker thats been full for ages that I use when I have company.

Although neither of us has high blood pressure both our doctors advised us to keep it to a minimum.

I hope you are right. My mom has hypertension that is still not controlled and she eats tons of salt. All she seems to eat is canned and frozen soups, which are loaded with the stuff.

In kind of a reply to both you and Murph, Murph is correct, I think, that you should not load up on salt...but then...I don't think it is a good idea to load up on ANYthing! Sugar, salt, preservatives, beef, chicken..everything in moderation.

When it comes to my food, I use salt..but I like to put it in myself, thank you. So I use saltless butter for example. You CAN get canned soup that have very little sodium added..but most of the crap off the shelf..(Progresso is one of the worst), is just loaded with salt..and that can't be good.

Food tastes bland without salt..afterall, salty taste IS one of the four taste receptors on our tongues..but too much salt can certainly overload the taste buds.

But they make canned and frozen soups with less salt for people like her. Its all a matter of getting use to it I think.

I tried telling her that, but she claims they taste funny. I don't know, we actually prefer the lower salt chicken soup.

No. MSG is a naturally occuring enzyme that helps to break down food and not only make it softer, but it also "brings out" the natural salts and sugars in the food.

It also makes my wife swell up and get some NASTY headaches! But, even if she was not sensitive to MSG, I would still not use it. To me, it does nothing to the food that I like. If I want to "break down" my grub, then things like lemons and even orange rind will do. Also, alcohol breaks down food. Either way, I bring some FLAVOR to the food and not just "softness".

I use REAL butter (even though I am more fond of the taste of margarine because that is what I grew up with) and REAL sugar (none of this nutra-tumor stuff for me!). Because as I get along in years I am finding that the REAL foods are simply BETTER than the pre-made, chemical plant crap.

Interesting...I looked up this one as well as Larry's Duke's of Malibu. Even though I DO like hawaiian food, Duke's looked pretty pricy to me..but this Stone Fire DOES have my interest! I looked at the menu and the prices look very reasonable. Worth a try....

My parents use soup as I use pizza...as velcro for all of the leftovers in the fridge...which, is how soup came to be anyway!

Just a note about what we do around here when it is "soup season"...I use the Better Than Boullion (chicken) for a base for a chicken soup that will bring a tear to your eye! And..you add your OWN salt..the B-T-B, has VERY little, unlike 99% of the chicken broth that can be purchased in the store.
