Dutch Oven Barbeque Brisket

Serves: 10
Total Calories: 849


5 to 7 pounds boneless beef brisket (Elk or Moose will do, too.)
1 to 2 large slicing onion
3 to 4 cloves garlic, mashed or sliced
2 bottles beer
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
salt, pepper and seasonings


Trim as much fat as possible off the brisket and trim to fit in a 12 inch Dutch Oven. Rub with a small amount of oil and salt and pepper to taste. Saute garlic in oil till golden brown. Place brisket in Dutch Oven, sear 3-4 minutes per side. At this point I like to sprinkle the brisket liberally with Schillings Chicken Mesquite Seasoning®. Cover with sliced onions and add beer. If yours is a dry camp substitute 4 - 5 cups water and or beef bouillon.

Put about the same number of briquets top and bottom, 12-14, and for the next hour work on shucking the corn or putting the finishing touches on a potato salad. Check the liquid about this time and add more if needed. Keep about 1-inch liquid in your Dutch Oven.

Minimum cooking time is about 1 1/2 hours. I prefer to cook mine about twice that long, which is usually enough to make this fairly tough cut of meat succulent and tender. Add fresh charcoal when needed. Forty-five minutes before dinner pull the lid and brush top side with BBQ sauce and continue to cook for 30 minutes.

Fifteen minutes before serving, remove brisket from DO and allow to rest on a cutting board. Slice and serve with your favorite BBQ sauce on the side. (Only Yankees eat their meat smothered with BBQ sauce.)
