Texas BBQ Beef Brisket
2 tsp. paprika
1-1/2 tsp. each: salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 beef brisket (about 3 lb.)
wood chips soaked
1 cup beer
Texas Brisket Sauce (see separate recipe)
Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 3 to 4 hours

Stir together seasonings in a small bowl. Rub onto the top and sides of brisket. Place soaked chips in a wood chip basket and place directly on coals or on gas grill over high heat. When chips begin to smoke, place brisket on grill over indirect heat. (Using indirect heat is important to not char the outside of the meat. See p. 52 for indirect heat instructions.) Cook for 1 to 2 hours, turning once or twice and adding more wood chips as necessary to maintain smoke. Remove from grill and place in a 9-by-13-inch foil or metal pan. Add beer to pan and seal well with heavy duty foil. Return to grill and cook over very low heat or in 300°F oven for 2 hours. Slice as desired and serve with Texas Brisket Sauce.

Makes 6 servings.
