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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
