Better than pot roast, smoked BBQ Tri-tip Beef Brisket goes great on a bun with a little sweet barbecue sauce. The secret to good beef brisket is this- you must cook it to a internal temperature of 200 degrees. So cook it slow and low for 8-10 hours at 200 degrees. You may also cook at 300 degrees for 3 hours. If you have the luxury of some kind of smoker you can smoke the meat for 2-3 hours at about 120 degrees prior. Remove the meat and double wrap in a heavy aluminum foil for the suggested times above. Let me know if you have any suggestions or comments.
