What would YOU do if an apartment dweller w no access to an outdoor grill or smoker wrote asking if there were any way to cook a decent brisket indoors?
Shrug with pity? Or try to help him out.
Call me a boy scout, but I did the latter?
What would YOU do?
While there’s no substitute for smoking brisket in a pit outdoors, there’s are some things you can do to improve your results indoors.
1. Invest in an indoor smoker, like the Camerons stovetop smoker-cooker.
2. Use a barbecue rub—preferably a smoky rub like my Best of Barbecue Kansas City Rub (made w smoked salt). Available in our store.
3. Braise the brisket indoors. Add a drop of liquid smoke to the braising liquid.
4. Baste the brisket with melted butter fortified with a drop of liquid smoke.
5. Brush with a smoky barbecue sauce and sizzle under the broiler just before serving.
5. Pick up a copy of my Raichlen’s Indoor Grilling book (Workman Publishing). There’s a recipe for Texas brisket indoors in the beef chapter.
Let us know how it works out.
