Stubb’s BBQ Expert Rocky Stubblefield Shares Tips to the Perfect Brisket !
Fireworks, flags, family, friends and brisket – there isn’t anything more American than smoked meat to celebrate the Fourth of July. Whether it’s a holiday feast for just the family or the whole neighborhood, a big barbecued brisket is the perfect way to bring everyone together for a day of celebrating the red, white and blue.
The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Every year we invite a bunch of family and friends to help celebrate. This year, I am planning to make Stubb’s Brisket Tacos with Roasted Corn Avocado Salsa. I have a feeling it is going to be the best cookout I've ever had! I cannot wait. These tacos are delicious! Below is the recipe.

Rocky’s Brisket Tips:
Get a good crust: One of the most delicious parts of a brisket is the flavor crust. Make sure you rub the entire brisket generously with Stubb’s Beef or Bar-B-Q Spice Rub 15-20 minutes before the meat goes on the grill or in the smoker.
Fat side up: Whether in your smoker or on a charcoal grill, place the brisket fat-side up so that the fat drips down into the meat and it stays moist.
Slicing is important: Make sure you cut against or across the grain of the brisket for tender slices. Not sure where the grain is? It’s easier to see on the raw meat before it’s rubbed, so cut a notch when prepping to help guide once it’s cooked.
Add the sauce : As we say in Texas – it’s not done ‘til you add the sauce! Serve on the side for dipping or drizzle it over the top.
