Summer is here and is in full swing! If you haven’t pulled out your BBQ yet, do it. The summer is not long enough for all the things you need to throw on your grill, so you better get a move on it.

I’ve always liked barbeque, but I have fallen in love with barbeque over the last year or so. Unfortunately, I don’t live in the barbeque loving part of the world; but I do plan to eat my way through our neighboring barbeque filled states. We have tried almost every barbeque joint around here, which has developed my love of long smoked barbeque.  I have been wanting a smoker for the longest time, and a few weeks ago, my wish came true! To make it even better, a few days later I received an Omaha Steaks Home-style Beef Brisket and I knew that this brisket and my new smoker needed to become best friends. I finally had a long weekend and was able to smoke this beautiful brisket.




There is nothing better than having a lazy weekend, turning on the smoker, rubbing down some meat, and letting it smoke all day. That smoke smell will make all of your neighbors jealous and they just might show up at your doorstep around dinnertime.

As much as I love my smoked meats, I do love my barbeque sauce. I definitely have a thing for the sweet barbeque sauces. So, naturally, I wanted to make you a sweet barbeque sauce to go with this beautifully smoked brisket.




We thinly sliced this brisket and served it on soft rolls with a glorious amount of that sweet and smokey barbeque sauce. And let me tell you, that was a sandwich. Great sliced with potato salad, fries or a salad as a side.
