BBQ Brisket – Myron Mixon Method

Myron Mixon

Myron Mixon did an “AMA” on Reddit on July 8, 2014 and was asked about his brisket recipe. This was his reply…

I’m going to give you my process.

My process for cooking brisket; I’m cooking at 300 degrees pit temp, using all wood, hickory and oak. After 1.5 hours, we do a panning, basically where we pan it and cover it tight, and we put it back on the smoker at 300 degrees, and we cook it until we get an internal temp at the point of 205. And I let this meat rest, either wrapped on an old blanket or in a holding box for at least 4 hours before we slice. And i get a great smoke ring from this process. I get 1/4-1/2 inch smoke ring. So try this, and let me know how this works for you.

1 Large Garlic Clove – Chopped

1 Yellow Onion – Diced

2 cups Carrots – Diced

1 tbsp Fresh Thyme – Chopped

1 tbsp Fresh Rosemary – Chopped

¼ teaspoon Red Chili Flakes [Crushed Red Pepper]

1 cup Guinness Stout

4 cups Beef Broth


Procedure:

1. Dredge the beef in flour and make sure all sides are lightly covered.

3. Heat the olive oil ( ~medium heat ) in a large Dutch-oven – add the steak and turn until all sides are well browned

4. Remove the steak and set it aside

5. Add a little more oil to the Dutch-oven and loosen any fond in the bottom of the dutch-oven

6. Create a light brown roux by slowly stirring the remaining flour into the hot oil

7. Add the Guinness and lightly whisk to combine with the roux

8. Add the beef broth, bay leaves, garlic, onions, carrots, thyme, rosemary, crushed red pepper

9. Season to taste with salt and black pepper

10. Bring this mixture to a boil

11. Nest the meat into the liquids, leaving some of the edges exposed

12. Cover the Dutch-oven and move it to a 350° oven to braise for 2½ – 3 hours ( the liquids should reduce a bit, and have a “saucy” consistency)

13. Discard bay leaves before serving

14. Expo by placing fresh mashed potatoes in the center of a soup bowl –  ladle the stew around the potatoes – Garnish the potatoes with a large cheddar cracker

15.  Don’t forget to pour yourself a tall Guinness!

Note – If the stew needs to be thickened, create a slurry by adding 1oz of cornstarch to 2oz of water and whisking.  Add this to the stew while at a simmer.
