Bacon Wrapped Brisket

Ok, so it's not really wrapped in bacon. But "bacon topped" doesn't have the same ring to it and the concept is the same. I'm not posting a recipe for this because I'm still working on the rub and I didn't get very many good pictures. I need to sit down and reevaluate my approach to photography, starting with getting myself Photoshop. Anyway, I when I saw this post over at Girlichef I remembered I had a brisket in the freezer. And since hers looked so good I had to make it. All I did was rub it with a rub and cover it with bacon. You could use whatever rub you want, the one at Girlichef looks great, this one from my barbecue pulled beef would also be good. Then I covered it and tossed it into a 300 degree oven for a couple hours. After the first hour or so I uncovered it so the bacon would crisp. This is pretty much what it looked like when it was done. It actually came out a bit dry, I think because I uncovered it. Or maybe I just didn't cook it long enough. But there were plenty of juices, so I just poured them over it and it all worked out fine. I made it into sandwiches. Good times, especially on a toasted seasame seed roll.

Bacon and brisket. Two of mans greatest discoveries with fire of course being the third. Putting these two delicious meats together is a wonderful idea and I will be adding bacon to my next smoked brisket. Thanks for the inspiration

My friend is from Texas and a real bbq snob. I showed this post to him.

Yeah...yesterday he had a bacon covered brisket in his smoker. :)

Next time, try cooking it @ 235-250F and cook it for 3-4 hours... It should keep more juices in it... I think this will make a great Sunday supper.
