Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

We spent some time in Virginia this month to see family. My sister in-law Shan had a 7lb Bison brisket that was calling my name. Using a small Chargriller, Knox's Cracked Pepper Dry Rub, Bacon and some Bourbon soaked hickory chips we made good with the brisket.

7lb. Bison reporting for duty


Knox's Cracked Pepper Rubbed and covered in bacon for good measure.


In the cooker


Cooking


Halfway there.


Birthday!


Bacon, need I say more.


Sliced and ready, some people could not wait. Most people could not wait.


Sliced with potato salad, slaw and some really good bean salad.



I made smoked bacon salad dressing with what I could save of the bacon.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

It looks good, but to me it looks a bit rare. Is that the natural color of bison cooked like that? How long did you smoke it?

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

I only smoked it a bit, maybe 1 cup of chips about half way through and took it off at 155 degrees internal. It was medium rare.

Total cook time was around 5.5 hours with an average temp of around 230 degrees.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

I'm surprised you had any bacon left to make salad dressing with bknox! Looks like a good cook. What did you think of the Bison Brisket? Was it tender at 155*?

I know, too many questions.....looks really good though!

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

I was excellent! One of my better cooks. I took it off at 155 and rested it, covered. Typically the temp will continue to go up to about 160 or higher which is about medium rare for beef which is how I like it. Nobody complained and everybody including the kids all had a second helping, so I would say it was a success. Would have liked to have had my knives there so I could have shaved it and made sandwiches or put on top a salad. Maybe next time.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

Looks yummy!
I've never had a med rare brisket, but as long as it's sliced thin against the grain and spiced right.... I don't see any problem there.
That would make a lot of nice sammiches fer sure !
Pass the horseradish.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

I, also, was surprised to see a med rare brisket. It wasn't tough to chew?

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

Griff, It was not tough at all. I am a bit surprised as well as it seems from the response that it should of been. Maybe I just got lucky, but I typically cook beef to be about 160 internal no matter how big of a chunk unless I am not paying attention and it gets away from me. Same for most pork.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

It could be the camera lighting that it looks more red than it was. I have never had bison like that so I don't have anything to compare it to.

I will take your word for it that it was delicious.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

Doug, Bison is really good although pricy. If I had to buy that brisket I may have taken a pass for some burgers instead.

Re: Bison Brisket 7-5-2010

Dollarbill,

I was talking about the brisket to a friend of mine. Basically that if I had to buy it I probably would not of. He said he has a friend where he could get it for cost, as well as goat, elk and deer sometimes. I may be trying another in the future and am going to let it go longer. Will still be using bacon and the bourbon hickory chips and hopefully have the time to video it.
