We’ll be serving samples of Smokin’ Texas Gourmet favorites, including Texas Dry Rubbed Brisket. Our Texas Dry Rub is the perfect balance of spiciness and sweetness.
Here’s our special recipe so that your next meal can have ‘A taste as big as Texas!’ ™
Texas Dry Rubbed Brisket, Ribs or Pork Shoulder
Remove excess fat from brisket or pork shoulder. If doing ribs, remove the backside skin from the bone. Liberally rub Smokin’ Texas Gourmet Dry Rub over the entire surface. Enclose loosely in aluminum foil and refrigerate for 24 hours. Set the oven to 225° Fahrenheit. Slow cook the meat in foil for 9-10 hours depending on the size of the brisket or pork shoulder. Meat should register 165˚ Fahrenheit on a cooking thermometer. Ribs should cook for 7-9 hours.
For smoked meat, put in a smoker or on the grill (indirect heat) with smoking tray and smoke at 165° Fahrenheit for 3 hours after 6-7 hours in the oven. If you’re using just a smoker, cook for 10-12 hours at 185° Fahrenheit. I like using oak chips for smoking.
Finish off your meat by sopping or serving with Smokin’ Texas Gourmet BBQ sauce.
