Mustard Mops

I have heard many people talk about grilling a beef brisket with a mustard mop or bbq sauce. Has anybody out there have a good recipe for this type of brisket? I have not had much success on this type of sauce.

I don't use a mop on a brisket, at least not until it is fully cooked. The reason is, I want to let the smoke adhere to the meat in the first 2 or 3 hours of cooking. This will give you a nice even "smoke ring"
You can however rub the meat with mustard before adding your seasonings (instead of oil). The mustard will cook away, while cooking without any of the mustard flavoring the meat. After smoking, cover the brisket with aluminum foil (doubld layer) add your liquid and wrap tightly. I add beer with tomato juice but you can add any flavor you want. If you want to add mustard, you can use so many variations, mix with apple vinegar, beer, juice,( Pineapple,apple etc).
Cook until the temp reaches 195 degrees then rap it in a towel or blanket and set it in a cooler for at least 1/2 hour to rest. Save the liquid to serve. Save the mopping for ribs!

The first time I used mustard in a cookout was on ribs. Regular yellow ballpark mustard. Slathered all over after removing the rib membrane. Then sprinkle the dry rub all over. While the ribs were cooking, I thought, O MY what have I done. The mustard smell was very intense and only increased. I thought if I wanted mustard, I should have just made hot dogs. Then, the mustard smell disappeared entirely leaving moist finger licking good ribs when they were done. I prefer using mustard instead of oil on my ribs now. Sometimes a sqwert of woostershire sauce mixed in, but usually plain mustard. Then apply the rub. I usually put a plastic baggie around the bottle of mustard to keep the bottle cleaner when you are prepping the meat. I only mop, with a little apple juice or other pure liquid, so I have no mop recipe to speak of. I haven't made a brisket so can not say how that would be either.

I choose to mop my brisket after the first two hours of smoking. As they say that is about how long the smoke will actually penetrate the meat. I don't use mustard in my mop though. I foil it at the end and let it rest before slicing. We are talking a 16+ hour cook @225 for an 18# packer.

So I assume I should smoke/grill the brisket unwraped at first,but should I put some type of dry rub on it before I start? I know low and slow is the best way to smoke/grill. Should I trim some of the fat off the brisket or just leave it alone? I'm a rookie at briskets, can you tell!

My way is, take a whole untrimmed packer brisket and slather with yellow mustard. The reason for mustard is to hold the rub to the meat. Mustard adds no flavor by the time it is done. I place in the smoker fat side down at 250*. I cook until 190* internal. I never foil brisket. It stays in the smoke the cook. My rub consists of Kosher salt and crushed peppercorns. When temp is hit I test the tenderness with a tooth pick. I push a toothpick in the flat and if it shows no resistance, it is done. I slice mine across the grain.

Beautiful smoke ring there paymaster.

I don't use oil or mustard and I cook mine fat side up.
I rub it/sprinkle my dry rub mix on heavy and allow to sit in fridge overnight or even up to a couple days before smoking.

No Tender Quick was used and I have never used it. I know about the stuff from other BBQ boards, but have never even seen a package.I smoked that brisket about 12 hours at 225*-250* in an offset smoker with Hickory and Oak.

Thanks

I have never heard of the stuff personally.

About your offset smoker.
I have one too. A Brinkman. I have used it several times, but its now relegated to the basement for two(2) reasons.

1) Its heavy and its located down there, (basement) so it must be used downstairs and I prefer to cook up here. With the rest of humanity.
I do have a small patio down there.

2) It uses a LOT of wood. Lots of wood. It is not even close to being economical. Once I ran out of free pecan wood, I quit using it.

Here is my post from before. Since you seem to know a good bit about smoking meats, will you look over my delima and see if you can suggest anything?
Here it is. Post #12. Electric smokers

Thanks in Advance...........John
