How To Cook Brisket
Cooking a brisket for the first time might seem like a magical act of alchemy, but with a little effort is simple enough to do at home. It does take an investment in time and money, however the final result is something ridiculously delicious. We heartily encourage you to take the plunge and give cooking a brisket a try! The two primary methods we use are Hot & Fast and Low & Slow.
Hot & Fast Brisket
Cooking a brisket with the Hot & Fast method requires a drum smoker. When we say "fast" we mean about 4 to 5 hours of cooking time. While that might sound like a long time, it's a sprint in brisket time. The "hot" portion of the equation is 300 degrees.
Low & Slow Brisket
The classic technique for cooking a brisket is the Low & Slow method which uses any conventional smoker. For barbecue aficinados this is the way real brisket is smoked. The cook time ranges from 10 to 12 hours depending on the size of the brisket used.
