What to do with the point, a day (or so) later??

Discussion in 'Beef' started by tender loins, Apr 22, 2010.

  1. I did my first brisket & thought it turned out great, however the point in some places shredded easily but the parts inward seemed a little tougher. It has been a couple days now and all the flat is gone. What can I do with the rest of the point? I cubed it and still have lots of au jus left I can do something with.

    Should I nuke it? Resmoke it in rub & au jus or BBQ sauce? I saw a youtube video where a guy just puts it in a food processor after cubing it into chunks and makes shredded beef for BBQ sammies. Maybe I can add taco seasoning and make tacos or enchiladas, or beef filled egg rolls like I q-viewed with pulled pork last year?

    Any suggestions? I still have about a full quart zip lock bag left.

    Simmer in your aujus and shred it for sammies or tacos, or whatever.

    That point meat would make some pretty good stew meat cubed up.

    Or make some chili with it? :D

    I'd cube it, put on some more rub, and smoke it for burnt ends.

    I do like the idea of pulling and making tacos out of it though.

    Put the cubed point in a foil pan hit it w/ some more rub and back into the smoker for burnt ends. Or add sweet bbq sauce after the rub and back into the smoker for what i like to call meat candy.
  7. Wow, so many good ideas. Maybe I better look to buy another brisket? hahaha!

    Maybe I will try the burnt ends and if that don't work to my liking throw it in the food processor?

    Or maybe I can put it with au jus in the crockpot for a few hours and eat it during the draft? Or add some diced tomatoes and some homemade canned chili w/meat to the crockpot...

    I better order Pizza Hut until I debate all these great ideas a little longer!

    If you have a slicer, just slice it thin and use some of that juice to make French dipped sammies..
