PERFECTLY PAIRED SMOKEY BEEF BRISKET

Is there anything more satisfying than biting into a tender, smokey beef brisket? Pair it with our beer of the month the Nine Tales Amber Ale and well… it doesn’t get any better than that!

Match this malty-heavy, toffee-caramel finished, nutty craft beer with a rich, meaty dish for the ultimate food pairing.

Nine Tales Amber Ale was the original James Squire beer and some would argue the best. It is full bodied, malt-heavy and boasts a toffee caramel sweetness and nutty finish. Match this against a warm, rich and meaty dish and the mix will knock your socks – or top hat – off.

If you are feeling inspired to break out your apron, try our delicious recipe. Put your culinary prowess to the test with the delicious smokey beef brisket recipe.

INGREDIENTS

(5 serves)

  • 1.2 kg beef brisket
  • 50g smokey bbq sauce

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Pat brisket dry with paper towel.
  2. Season generously with your favourite dry rub or smokey bbq sauce, being sure to give the brisket a good massage
  3. Leave a marinade in the fridge for 4 hrs or overnight.
  4. Using a med/high temperature, char-grill the dry rubbed brisket on both sides until evenly charred and a nice crust is visible.
  5. Place into roasting tray & cover with aluminium foil.
  6. Place tray into a pre-heated oven at 95 degrees and leave to slow cook until core temperature reaches 90 degrees, this will take about 7-8 hrs. If you can’t wait 8hrs, 150 degrees for 3-4 hrs will also give a delicious result.
  7. Serve with your favourite starch and a fresh salad. We recommend serving your brisket with an eggplant puree & Amber Ale beer jus with beetroot slices as garnish.
