BBQ Braised Beef Brisket

Post  justmecookin on Tue Jun 09, 2009 1:16 pm

BBQ Braised Beef Brisket

1/4 cup sweet Hungarian paprika
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (5 to 6-pound) piece beef brisket, preferably point cut, fat trimmed
6 cups wood chips, preferably hickory or mesquite

Braising Sauce:
1 (28-ounce) can tomato puree
12 ounces lager or amber beer
2 ribs celery, minced
1 medium onion, minced
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
5 thick slices bacon, coarsely chopped (about 6 ounces)
10 cloves garlic, minced
4 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
3 ancho chiles, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
Freshly ground black pepper
4 cups water

For the rub: Mix the paprika, 1 tablespoon each of salt and black pepper, the brown sugar, and the cayenne. Rub spice mixture all over brisket, wrap tightly, and refrigerate overnight.

Soak the wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling. Prepare an outdoor grill with a medium to medium-low fire for indirect grilling.

For the sauce: Mix the tomato puree, beer, celery, onion, 1/2 cup of the vinegar, the brown sugar, mustard, bacon, garlic, chiles, bay leaves, chili powder, 1 tablespoon salt, and black pepper to taste in a large disposable aluminum pan. Put brisket in the sauce.

Throw a handful of drained wood chips on the hot coals, put the pan over the cooler side of the grill, and cover so the vent holes are directly over the brisket. Baste meat every 30 minutes, turning occasionally and adding water to the pan as necessary to keep meat partially submerged, until the meat is tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 200 degrees, about 3 3/4 hours. Replenish the charcoal as needed to maintain a medium to medium-low fire.

Transfer the brisket to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 20 minutes. Skim the fat from the braising sauce and stir in the remaining 1/4 cup cider vinegar and salt to taste. Reheat if necessary. Thinly slice brisket across the grain and arrange on a serving platter. Spoon some sauce over the meat and pass the rest at the table. Serves 6 to 8 servings
