Drunk Brisket with a Bacon BBQ Sauce is still holding strong as one of the most popular posts on my site, and it was one of the first I ever wrote. I get requests for this at parties and some of my friends have even used it as currency, asking that I pay them for goods or services with brisket. Honestly, I’m not surprised. This recipe is so special and beautiful and flavorful and I just think your family will love it! Let me give you a little back story:
Every once in a while, there is a recipe that comes to you in a dream. A vision, if you will. About 4 years ago I was thinking about brisket.
I spend a lot of free time thinking about food, actually. It’s not weird. Promise.
Back to my brisket thoughts, I wanted a super tender fall apart brisket and I wanted bacon. I knew there had to be a solid way to combine my two desires in a ridiculously flavorful way. And guess what? I couldn’t find one. So I decided to create the ultimate Bacon/Brisket combo!
This recipe, specifically, represents a big turning point in my cooking where I went from following or adapting other people’s recipes to stepping out and creating my own. I used it to enter a national competition and it is the first recipe I ever cooked on TV (welcome Good Things Utah viewers!) All those years ago, I wouldn’t have thought food blogging and living the BBQ life would even be something I was doing but I’m so glad I got the encouragement to get my butt outside and turn on my grill! So, enough of my sentimental explanation about my attachment to this particular recipe. Let’s talk about to how to get it done!
This recipe is simple enough. Only 5 “S”s to the most tender, flavorful, mind blowing beefy brisket-y goodness of your whole life.
And Boom! Drunk Brisket with Bacon BBQ Sauce and the invitation from your guests to be the official food cooker person for all events hereto-forth.
