The best way to cook our local Angus or Wagyu Brisket is to smoke it on the Big Green Egg. We've been floored by how tender and delicious our Wagyu Briskets have been turning out lately and while we love our Angus briskets, the Wagyu has taken top honors in the flavor and tenderness departments.
Step 1 - Go to The Organic Butcher and pick up 10-12 LB of whole brisket (also referred to as a Packer-Cut brisket).
Step 2 - Rub with extra virgin olive oil and a BBQ style rub. We have great seasonings in the shop! Ask one of our knowledgable staff members to help you pair your meat with a rub that suits your menu plan.
Step 3 - Use Big Green Egg Organic Lump Charcoal. If you use woodchips, make sure to pick a milder option like Cherry or Pecan Wood Chips. Heat your Big Green Egg to between 225-275 degrees. With the fat side facing up, smoke for 10-12 hours or until the temperature at the center of the brisket reaches 190-200 degrees.
Step 4 - Wrap your finished brisket in tin foil and let it sit for 30-45 minutes. You can even place the wrapped brisket in a cooler for a few hours to hold in the heat which lets the brisket continue to cook and tenderize further. When you're ready to eat, un-wrap and slice into the most tender and delicious brisket you've ever had! Enjoy!
