David's Mesquite Smoked Texas Brisket Recipe
- 8 pounds beef brisket
- 15 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1/4 cup Greek-style seasoning
step 1: Make deep cuts into the brisket with a paring knife. Place cloves all the way into the cuts. Liberally sprinkle brisket with Greek seasoning.
step 2: Place mesquite wood over gray/hot charcoals.
step 3: Put brisket fat side down on the grill. Smoke for 2 hours and do not turn the meat.
step 4: Take the meat out and wrap tightly 2 times in extra heavy aluminum foil. Put in the oven for 2 hours on a cookie sheet at 250 degrees F.
step 5: Remove from oven and let sit (still wrapped in foil) 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving to let the meat "firm up" and the juice to be absorbed.
