- 13lb brisket with the excess fat chopped off
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- A blend of paprika, onion powder and salt to make up 1 cup
- Olive oil – enough to cover the brisket
- Sweet tea – enough to cover the brisket
- Using a meat preparation board, start by slicing the excess fat from the brisket and putting it to one side.
- Heat up your smoker to 200 – 250 degrees.
- Using a large bowl, mix together the brisket rub dry ingredients such as the brown sugar, paprika, onion powder and salt. Get your hands dirty, mix the ingredients up together, to form a great rub.
- Baste your brisket with olive oil, make sure to get the oil into all the nooks and crannies.
- Rub the mix onto the brisket, completely cover it in the seasoning rub.
- Pop the prepared brisket onto the smoker and strategically place a pan under the meat which will catch the juices that fall off of the brisket (these can be used to make a sauce afterwards if you wish).
- Leave the brisket to smoke for two and a half to three hours or until it is dark brown and the rub has crusted over.
- Put the brisket into a deep cooking dish and fill it with sweet tea until the brisket is fully immersed. Braise the meat in an oven at 350 with the tea together for a few more hours or until the meat is tender.
- Save the sweet tea juices that are reduced while cooking as this can be used as a nice finishing sauce to put on top of the meat. Remove the meat from the heat, let it rest for 20 minutes and then serve. Drizzle the sweet tea juice on top to give it that extra special kick.
A sweet tea infused brisket is a great new BBQ time recipe that your family will go nuts about. Once you have given the recipe a go, tweak around with your spice mix and add a few of your own to give the brisket your signature touch. Happy infusing!
