St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! How about trying something a little different this year! Here's what you'll need:
* 1 3-4 lb. flat cut corned beef brisket, 1/4 inch fat cap
* 1 cup of your favorite fruit-based barbecue sauce
* 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Remove the corned beef brisket from its packaging and discard the spice packet, if any. Start smoker with your preferred wood (try hickory or pecan) and preheat to 250-275 degrees F. Put the corned beef brisket directly on the grill, fat side up, and cook for 2 hours. Meanwhile, combine the barbecue sauce and the mustard in a bowl and mix well.
Pour half of the barbecue sauce-mustard mixture in the bottom of a disposable aluminum pan. After smoking for 2 hours, transfer the brisket to the pan, fat-side up. Pour the remainder of the barbecue sauce-mustard mixture over the top of the brisket and use a brush to spread the sauce evenly. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Return the brisket to the grill and continue to cook for 2 to 3 hours or until the the internal temperature reaches 185-190 degrees F. Allow the meat to rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Slice across the grain into 1/4-inch slices and serve immediately. It's great with some extra sauce spooned over it! Cover and refrigerate any leftovers, if there are any!
Once you taste corned beef like this, you'll never go back to boiled again!
