Leftover Brisket Chili! With Q-view

Discussion in 'Dutch Oven Recipes' started by reloadmike78, Jan 4, 2012.

  1. Had some leftover brisket from Christmas day and needed to do something with it so I fired up my dutch oven and made some chili.  I used my competition bean chili recipe and just cut back on the ground pork and added my brisket left over from a few days prior.

    It turned out great!  Too bad I don't have the time on "cook day" to smoke a brisket first to use in my comp chili!

    Here are some pics..enjoy!

    A little onion and green pepper in some bacon fat..


    Dump one and dump two(spices that is)


    Greying up the pork and beef


    Leftover brisket and some "heat" from the neighbors garden.  Slightly roasted/blended jalapenos 


    Before brisket dump


    After brisket dump and about to chow down.


    Thanks for looking and all your help on the briskets in the first place!

    Now your chili looks good. I have always cooked my chili with big chunks of meat instead of just plain ground beef. I think it is better.
  4. Looks great!  One of my favorite things to do with left over brisket... OH YEAH!  Nice job!


  5. Why thank you sir!  In my chili comps we have to use "ground" (CASI) but I usually ask for a chili grind which is much more coarse than your regular ground beef.  If the "local" comps were ICS they would use "cubed" meat.  I also attempt not to "break up" the ground beef when I use regular because I don't want "Hormel/Cincinnati" chili either!

    PS Love your outdoor kitchen!

    That's some great looking chili Mike. Nothing better than a bowl of chili on a cold winter day, and it's cold down here in Florida today!

  8. Thanks Al!  I heard it was a little nippy down there today!  Have fun with that, supposed to be 65 here tomorrow, very very rare at this time of year!
