Texas Brisket

There are plenty of barbecue joints throughout Texas, and amongst them, a variety of cooking styles and regional favorites. But when we[ asked our Texan readers what one dish represents their state, the answer was a traditional Texas Brisket - by a landslide. Del King's brisket recipe calls for the meat to be coated with yellow mustard and a spicy rub and then smoked for over nine hours. The resulting flavorful beef brisket meat is well worth the wait.]

Ingredients
  • 6 pounds beef brisket
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle chili powder
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Directions
  • Trim the fat cap on the brisket to about 1/4 to 1/8 of an inch. Coat the brisket with a light coating of the yellow mustard. Mix the sugar and spices together to form the rub for the brisket. Apply the rub to both sides of the meat.

  • Place the brisket in a preheated 194 to 205 degree F smoker until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 185 to 195 degrees F, about 1 1/2 hours per pound. Once the internal temperature is reached, remove the brisket from the smoker and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
