1- Texan to cry like a baby


• Fire up your Grill/Smoker as per the instructions in the manual.

• Make sure to build the fire next to one side of the grill, or in the Firebox so that you cook with indirect heat.

• Trim brisket to have no more than ¼ inch of fat inside and out.

• Liberally apply Joe BBQ All Purpose Rub and Joe BBQ Steak Rub.

• Once charcoal is ready to cook on, add a few wood chunks to the fire.

• Cook brisket (unwrapped) at 250ºF to 275ºF using indirect heat and smoke for 4 hours flipping every hour. Make sure brisket is positioned away from the coal bed, near the smoke stack. Add charcoal and wood as needed to maintain cooking temperature.

• After brisket has cooked 4 hours, place brisket in foil.

• Continue to cook for approximately 3 hours at 275 to 300 degrees

• Pull brisket from cooker and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour before slicing and serving. Slice against the grain for best results.

• Make sure that brisket reaches a minimum internal meat temperature of 190F. For best results, keep brisket from exceeding 200ºF.

• To keep the Texan from crying on your grill, give him a beer from time to time. He can then go cry in the corner with his beer!

• Serve with BBQ Beans, BBQ Spicy Slaw, Pickles, Peppers, Onions, Bread and Joe's BBQ Sauce for a real Bevo Feast!

Total cooking time: 7 hours
