    I smoked a brisket on my wood burner this weekend. Used a bit of mesquite.
    I seasoned with a simple mix of kosher salt, cracked black pepper, and garlic and onion powder.



    I smoked at 275 degrees til I reached an internal temperature of 180...pulled and let it sit for 30 minutes.








    It came out really juicy and tender....








    I wrapped some in a hot tortilla with cactus salsa....





    Thanks for checking out my brisket!

    Thanks for the kind words and the points folks! I appreciate it!
    The brisket was nice and tender and juicy. I hadn't smoked one for a few months... I was getting hungry for one. lol

    The cactus salsa is really easy.
    I use about 1 cup of cooked cubed cactus.
    Add chopped jalapeno
    minced garlic
    minced onion
    cubed tomato
    cilantro
    lime juice
    salt and pepper to taste.
    Mix and chill

    If you use canned or brined cactus make sure to drain and rinse with fresh water before using.


    Thanks again everybody!! You're a nice group of friends. [​IMG][​IMG]
