Fourth of July has long been one of my favorite holidays. While we'll always have a ways to go it's a great time to celebrate how far we've come. A chance to be around family and those we adopted as family. I enjoy livin' in a state that celebrates to Independence Day's every year. It's also a perfect chance to try out new recipes on loved ones. Like this brisket recipe.
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons of sugar
1. So most Texas BBQ rubs have some variation of chili powder, mustard seed, sugar, garlic powder onion powder and pepper. I wanted to try out Jelly Queens rub so I used that and then added the chili-powder and sugar. For the Jelly Queen rub I just eyeballed based on the amount of meat I had
2. Spread the wet Mustard Seed. I know, I know it isn't a true dry rub since I add wet but you'll live. I like a little somthin' to help my seasonin' stick to my meat. I crushed a bay leaf and add it.
3. I cooked uncovered for a little over an hour at 350 F
4. I then added the beef broth/stock into my roastin' pan and covered. I cooked for another 3.5 hours checkin' here or there to make sure all the broth didn't cook out. I did this at 300F
5. Now impress all your friends this summer.
In Texas if you have to put BBQ sauce on someone's BBQ it is considered an insult to them. But, if you feel you must I recommend Snows sauce. You can read all about it here and see pics and links to the other products I mentioned.
