On behalf of Expert Village, I am Terry and
today I am going to give you tips on smoking beef brisket. Okay I am going to show you
an example of one smoker. Say you are leaving town and you don’t have availability to something
large. You just want to smoke meat in your local neighborhood or at your house where
you don’t disturb anybody. You can go and buy one of these smokers. This is an electric
H20 smoker meaning that there is a pan right here above the electric coil which you fill
full of water and once the water gets to boiling the steam will come up and go through the
Where you get your flavoring, you can buy mesquite chips at your local grocery store,
discount store and once you get up the temperature and your water is boiling, you want to add
the wood chips underneath here so that they catch fire and smolder and the smoke will
come up through the meat. This smoker, you want one that has a temperature dial on it.
It will tell you warm, barbecue or grill. You want to keep your temperature just above
200 degrees when you are smoking a beef brisket. A beef brisket averages about 8 or 10 pounds
so you are roughly going to want to cook it 9 to 12 hours. The longer, the more tender
it is. Some people will only smoke them 6 to 7 hours.
