Yield: 1 Servings
|1 each||Boneless beef brisket (6 to 8 pounds)|
|1 teaspoon||Ground black pepper, divided|
|1 each||Medium onion, grated|
|1 tablespoon||Fresh lemon juice|
|1 tablespoon||Worcestershire sauce|
|1 teaspoon||Hot pepper sauce|
Trim external fat on beef brisket to ¼ inch. Combine paprika and ½ tsp of the black pepper; rub evenly over surface of beef brisket.
Place brisket, fat side down, in 11½ X 9" disposable foil pan. Add 1 cup water. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil. Place in center of grid over very low coals (use a single layer of coals with space in between each); cover cooker. Cook 5 - 6 hours, turning brisket over every 1 ½ hours; use baster to remove fat from pan as it accumulates. Add ½ cup water, if needed, to pan during cooking.
(Add just enough briquette during cooking to keep coals at a very low temperature). Remove brisket from pan; place on grid, fat side down, directly over very low coals. Reserve pan dripping. Cover; continue cooking for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Meanwhile, skim fat from pan drippings; reserve 1 cup drippings. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook until tender crisp. Add reserved pan drippings, remaining ½ teaspoon black pepper, the catsup, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce; simmer
Carve brisket into thin slices across the grain; serve with sauce.
Garnish with fresh peppers and lemon and lime slices.
Note: For a smokier flavor, soak oak, pecan, mesquite or hickory chips in water 30 minutes and add to very low coals.
