Au Jus question

Discussion in 'Beef' started by pigglywiggly, Apr 2, 2015.

  1. So i am smoking a brisket for passover tomorrow and want to make an au jus to go with it. I am using chef jimmy j's recipie but have a question. After i add the beef broth how long should i smoke it for? I am thinking leaving it in for the duration of the brisket smokr would be a bit too much. I am thinking more that it should be like 5 or 6 hours? Any input on how long to smoke the au jus after adding the broth would be much appreciated!

    I typically do JJ's when I do roasts that take 3-5 hours and it has plenty of smoke by then. If it were me I'd pull it between 3-5, or put it on later say after 165 IT or after you pass the stall, if you have one. We like to use a good stout or Porter intead of te wine.

    What's the link to CheffJJ's au jus recipe? His finishing sauce is amazing so i"ll have to try this.

    Thanks!

    Look in the articles section under recipes. That where it's at. I'd post the link but the iPhone6 and SMF don't agree when I comes to doing copy and paste!

  7. I ended up smoking the broth for 4 hours. Turned out perfect level of smokiness. I added merlot and it was amazingly good. Will definitely make again
