I recently had the opportunity to learn how to make smoked brisket from my friends at the NY Beef Council. The process of smoking a brisket had always intimidated me, but I learned just how easy, and fun, it really was. Plus, the flavor is insane!

Seasoning the Brisket for Smoking.
Brisket in the Smoker before and after smoking.

We used our smoked brisket to make some incredible recipes, like this Smoked Beef Brisket and Corn Chowder and Foil Packet Beef and Veggies (we used brisket).

We also learned how to make sausage from beef. My friend, Chef Patrick from NY Kitchen, walked us through the process. We made a German style sausage that we included in our foil packets. If you’ve never tried beef sausage, I highly recommend it.

Expert Tips for Making Chopped Brisket Sandwiches

  • Cheese: Any cheese makes everything better so add some to your sandwiches.
  • Slaw: A crunch slaw adds another dimension to this sandwich, try Creamy Coleslaw or Asian Slaw.
  • Short cut tip: Use pre cooked brisket from the supermarket or bottled bbq sauce. It won’t be as good but will work in a pinch.
  • Alternate ingredient: If you are Keto or gluten intolerant, serve over riced cauliflower or other grains.
  • Different cooking method tip: Brisket can be cooked low and slow in a slow cooker or oven, however, the smoker really is the best method.
