S.E.'s Meaty Recipe of the Week: Pork Barrel BBQ’s Award Winning Smoked Brisket

Ingredients

  • 1 (7 pound) beef brisket flat
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub
  • 1 bottle Pork Barrel BBQ Original or Sweet BBQ Sauce, for serving
  • 5 chunks of hickory for smoking
  • 3 chunks of oak for smoking

Directions

Place the brisket on a cookie sheet and pat the meat dry with a paper towel.  Rub the brisket with extra virgin olive oil then rub Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub onto the brisket, covering the entire surface area of the meat.  Cover the brisket with aluminum foil and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

While the brisket is sitting get the smoker or charcoal grill ready.  We recommend you use 100% hardwood charcoal in lump or briquette form and we strongly encourage you to use a charcoal chimney to light the charcoal (stay away from lighter fluid if at all possible).  The charcoal is ready to use when it has burned to a white ash.  If you don’t have a smoker with a separate fire box you can use a grill (like a Weber Kettle) to smoke the brisket.  If you are using a grill arrange the coals on one side of the grill so you can leave an area of the grill open to cook the brisket over indirect heat with no coals underneath it.

After getting the coals arranged place the lid on the smoker or grill and let it reach a temperature of 225 degrees.  Once the smoker or grill has reached 225 degrees you are ready to place the brisket on the grill.  This is also the time you will want to begin adding wood onto the coals (place 3 chunks of hickory and 2 chucks of oak on your charcoal at this time).

Keep an eye on the smoker or grill and make sure it maintains a temperature around 225 degrees.  After the first hour add more coals if necessary and add another 2 chunks of hickory and 1 chunk of oak.  Check on the coals ever 90 minutes adding more as needed.

When the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees (this will occur about 5 hours into the cooking process) wrap it in aluminum foil and return it to the smoker or grill.  The brisket is finished when it reaches an internal temperature of 190 degrees (this will occur about 6.5 hours into the cooking process).  Remove the brisket from the smoker or grill and let it rest wrapped in the aluminum foil for 30 minutes.

Unwrap the brisket and slice against the grain.  Serve with your favorite roll and Pork Barrel BBQ Original and Sweet BBQ Sauce on the side.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
