You can enjoy the deep, woodsy flavor of smoked brisket even without a smoker. Wood chips, a deep roasting pan, and aluminum foil come together to make your oven a makeshift smoker.
Brisket is the breast. The muscles are lean and very well balanced with thick layers of fat. The Brisket’s versatility supports many preparations and cooking options: oven roasting, smoking and grilling, steaming, pot roasting, curing, and brining. The brisket is great for making Pastrami or a deep spice-rubbed barbecue.
Corned Beef is best when slow-cooked, and is traditionally boiled to help tenderize the meat and draw out some of the excess salt used in the brining. Complete this classic St. Patrick's day meal with cabbage, carrots and potatoes flavored with the peppercorn spices of the beef.
