Brisket Sausage SandwichInstagram #txbut015
- 10 pound untrimmed brisket
- 8 ounce Dawgs Bark
- 10 tons patience
- 1 pack of your favorite sausage
- 2 box frozen Texas Toast
- 2 ounce Dirtyleg
- 1 jar pepperoncini peppers
Prepare 3 days ahead at least a day. 24-72 hours the longer the better.
Cover Brisket in Dawgs Bark, place in food safe plastic bag, and refrigerate according to step 1
Ready to cook, you need to provide consistent 220 to 240 degree temperature via smoker, electric smoker, charcoal grill and even an oven. Consistent for around 20 hours or 2 hours per pound in the air with a pan to catch juices but not cook in them. Many peeps smoke fat side up, I don’t. Go with your gut.
I use mesquite to smoke but most people in my area use pecan and or oak. Depending on your technique you will need to re-add wood about every 3 hours after wood smoke seems to dissipate. Careful to not smoke so much you “tar the brisket” (Shawn-ism). Meaning the finished brisket kinda taste like tar. Good rule of thumb is less smoke the better. We’re not cooking for a championship red ring, plus trust me it will happen.
Do not smoke indoors (duh) Don’t sue me bro…
Keep the damn lid shut. You lose massive temp and time admiring your hunk of meat. Fight the urge.
Briskets get people to 2nd guessing a lot. In fact a 10 pound brisket that should take 20 hours Texas Butter rules, might only take 15 hours to get to a perfectly smoked brisket. To keep you from questioning yourself along this long cook just see if your finger can push through the meat with ease (thick part). It will have about the same resistance as if you poked through a piece of watermelon meat. Wrap in foil and rest an hour on counter.
This is where you can easily take off any thick outside fat.
Cook your favorite sausage and slice it in ¼ inch thick. Above was done in a pan mostly just heated up because it’s pre-cooked from the sausage company. I use a Texas hill country type sausage that is along German heritage.
Bake your Texas Toast according to it’s box. You can use any bread available, this was my choice.
Slice about 3 slices of ¼ inch thick brisket then break into pieces.
From bottom to top: Texas Toast, brisket, sausage, Dirtyleg, and another slice of Texas Toast.
Garnish with a couple three pepperoncini peppers.
Ring some cowbell!
About The Recipes:
Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made and noted on the fly. If you don't have any Texas Butter I guess we'll overlook it if you use what's in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can't spell worth a crap. Will hashtag recipes that match a search here and the same hashtag in the Instagram's image comments. Hashtags will look something like #txbut001. In a nut shell these are made for:
