Braggin' Rights Brisket Recipe

4 lb brisket untrimmed
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp red pepper
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
2 Tbsp. salt


Serious home barbecuers may begin by building a charcoal fire at one end of the grill. Cover 6 c. mesquite c. water and soak for one hour. Season brisket, except for the salt. Sear meat over white-warm coals 5 min on each side. Move brisket over to one side and spread 4 c. of the mesquite chips over the coals. With the grill covered, smoke brisket for 1 hour. Add in salt to brisket, pour remaining mesquite chips on coals, and smoke for another hour, sprinkling water over chips, if necessary. When the brisket has absorbed the smokey flavor, place in a baking pan, covered with foil, and bake in a 200 F oven for about 8 hrs. Slice brisket across the grain and serve at once. Serves 10.
