First smoked then finished "sous vide," our tender and juicy, super delicious smoky beef brisket is the ultimate "low and slow" in BBQ. We then take our brisket and pile it high on an onion bun, topped with our outrageous Apple Fennel Slaw and then sauce our succulent sandwich with our signature Smoky Mole Style Beef BBQ Sauce.
Set smoker to 160 ͦF with hickory or a mixture of hickory and fruit wood.
Split brisket in half with the grain, Trim triangular points from the outsides and the ends. These trimmings should also be smoked for burnt ends. the 5 1/2 pound brisket will trim to two pieces totaling about 4 pounds and about 1 1/4 pounds of trimmings for burnt ends.
