Sous Vide Smoked Brisket with #anovafoodnerd Zach Johnston

As a food writer, former kitchen grunt, and consummate gourmand I tend to know my way around a brisket. That all changed when I got an Anova Precision Cooker. The accuracy of my cook times massively increased and I was able to actually relax while executing low and very slow cooks.

 

Over time I’ve tinkered a lot with spice rubs, marinades, and even flash brines. I’ve whittled my recipe down to the bare basics so that the meat truly shines through. I tend to hit up my local butcher for a specific cut and size. I cook for a family of four — so a 2 to 3 pound brisket generally does the trick for a Sunday dinner and then some tasty sandwiches going into the next week’s lunches. I like the get a cut of brisket that’s half lean and half streaked with plenty of fat and nice fat cap running along the whole piece. It’s not essential to track down a butcher that’ll make perfect cuts just for you. You can easily grab yourself a nice piece from your local grocery store. Once you have a nice piece of brisket, the rest is pretty straight forward with a succulent end result.
