We love making an Easy Smoked Brisket over the weekend and then we enjoy it all week long. If you have never cooked a brisket, be sure to head over and get our tried and true method.

Most importantly, cooking your own brisket is about 1/4 of the price of picking it up at the local bbq place. It is perfect for feeding a crowd or a to feed your family all week long.

We are creating new recipes to enjoy it every time we smoke another brisket. So keep checking back or subscribe to our emails to make sure you don’t miss out!

Brisket is absolutely wonderful sliced up, drizzled with a little Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce and piled high on a sandwich.

The slow smoked, tender brisket is the perfect filling for these taquitos.  A great addition to your game day menu or Tex- Mex fiesta.

If I’m stumped on what to make for dinner, nine times out of ten it will be Mexican of some sort. It’s quick and easy and something the whole family will eat.

  1. Yes I will have to tell everyone it is the best tasting brisket I’ve ever had. Love how many different meals you can create with it. Great job Tony and Missy

    1. Hi Brooke,
      I have not tried freezing them, but I can’t see any reason that it wouldn’t work. I would put them in a ziptop freezer bag and they should be fine. Let me know how it turns out if you try it.
