My friend, maribeth, wants to surprise Joe with a barbeque this weekend and asked if I had a simple, really tasty recipe to share. OK. This is a Texas recipe that I have pulled out of my Wranger PBRs on many occasions and produced on relatively short notice - and there is usually absolutely none left by party's end. This is not fancy, it is down and dirty, as they say, and sometimes you need that. But I have found it a fail-safe crowd pleaser that leaves a ton of time to gather all the sides for a super BBQ party. And make sure the cervezas are chilled! Not every recipe is an amazing feat of magic. But this definitely will disappear and you will have a back-40 full of happy buckaroos.

  • i've broken this down for 'home' use. depending on the number of guests, you are safe to do the math and increase the recipe, as needed. start preparing this 2-3 days prior to the party. this recipe will require 2 overnights. message me if you have any questions.
  • 1 - 3 to 4 lb beef brisket
  • 1/2 c good soy sauce (or gluten-free teriaki sauce)
  • 1/3 c dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp mesquite liquid smoke (preferably the schnizius brand) - i know, it smells like creosote, but go along with me on this, it works
  • combine the above well with a whisk
