Have about 2 lbs. Any creative ideas for using it?

  1. Brisket tacos with the trimmings are popular here in Dallas, I've had some really good ones with flour tortillas.

      Now, that sounds good. Do you chop/grind the meat? Mix with BBQ sauce? More details, please.

        Strips seem to work best so the meat stays together. It really goes well with the usual taco adornments - pico de gallo, sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado, jalapenos. A little grilled onion works, too. I haven't seen them with Q sauce. It's pretty much fajitas with brisket, but you only want to warm up the meat and keep it as moist as you can.

          +1! There's a truck here in FW that does them fabulously. A little vinegar-y cabbage slaw and crumbled white cheese is my favorite way to top them.

    2. smoke brisket nacho's. Take nacho chips, smear refried beans on each chip, line a baking dish and make a layer of chips, black beans, corn, olives jalapino's if you want, then chop brisket and layer, cover with any 4 cheese mexican blend cheese. bake at 350 until cheese melts. You can use pulled pork, chicken or BBQ brisket. Enjoy

      1. Slice meat and heat in a pan with just a tad of butter. Serve with poached eggs, fried potatoes and jewish rye toast.

        1. I vac seal individual size paks for "when I feel like smoked brisket" sandwiches.

          1. Chop it up real small and make some chili.
