Marinated Smoked Brisket with Chipotle Pepper Au Jus
5 pound brisket
Trim brisket of most fat. Place all ingredients except
brisket, chipotle peppers, brown stock, and arrowroot in a resealable
plastic bag and mix well. Add brisket, making sure it is well immersed
in the marinade. Marinate for 24 to 48 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
Prepare smoker. After 45 to 60 minutes, add apple
wood or other flavored wood that has been soaked in water for at
least 30 minutes. Remove meat from bag and reserve marinade. Smoke
meat for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature reaches
125 degrees for rare or 140 to 145 degrees for medium. Remove meat
and wrap in foil to keep warm. When serving, slice across the grain.
To make sauce, pour reserved marinade (about 2 1/2
to 3 cups) into a small saucepan and add chipotle peppers. Simmer
for about 30 minutes, then remove from heat and let cool to room
temperature. Strain and degrease.
Serves 8 to 10
