Default beef brisket

Could only get a 2 lb brisket, going to cook it up today and I will let you know the results. Found a good recipe.

Good luck. I did a 4lbs brisket a few weeks ago. Turned out okay, but could have used a few more hours going low and slow, but had to rush it at the end. Anyways. A 4lb brisket is tough enough to cook, so a 2lb one would be even harder. Toughest meat to cook right. Are you grilling or cheating? You would get okay results on the slow-cooker, but that would be less manly. LOL. Good luck. If done right it will taste good as hell.

hockey is right, brisket isn't the easiest thing to do. I'm not even close to getting it right. I've only made 3 or 4 on the smoker, they've only been 'OK'. I'm still dreaming of the one my neighbor made before he moved back to TX. That man had his recipe and technique down to a science. I think you gotta use Oak on it though, hickory doesn't do it any justice.

I'm sure it's much easier in the oven though. Be careful, a 2lb'r will be easy to dry out. There's nothing special about that recipe though, it's just a basic rub on a brisket cooked in the oven. I'd smoke it....

Using the oven. I am going to cook it for about 5 hours. 1st hour at 350, last 4 at 275.

Use lots of beef stock if your doing it in the oven. Low and slow Cubfan. 10 plus hours at 230 with some nice wood in there. Even add a drip pan with water or other liquid. My try turned out OK too. It was tasty as hell, but not fall apart fork tender.

And Maddox...your 2 lb baby is much smaller than his 4 pound mini so don't overcook. I'm sure you've already scaled back a bit though. Hope it turns out good.

Get you a grill man!

The recipe calls for 1 hour at 375, I did 35 mins at 350. It calls for 3 hours at 300, I am doing 3-4 hours at 270. I think after an hour I will turn it down to 245 250.

Thought I had beef stock but I was wrong, so I used 2 packets of the beef flavoring that comes with the noodles. We will see.

you dont need to tell me man. I know the score, they just never turn out super tender like you said. I think a lot of is the hickory Ive been using on them. Hickory aint for beef. need to get me some oak.
