Leftover dry barbeque brisket

I like taking ends and dry pieces of brisket and shredding them (in the style of pulled pork), mixing with bbq sauce and putting it on a bun with hot sauce and coleslaw. Something about those dry, dark smoky bits of beef (pork too) is just really tasty. You could probably do some sort of soup with it, that would be tasty. Maybe grind it with some raw beef and make burgers (the Ideas in Food folks did that with corned beef brisket).

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

If it were me, I'd give it a shot as hash. Couple potatoes, onions, eggs over easy, breakfast tomorrow's looking good.

The best BBQ beans in KC are made with bits of smoked brisket cooked in with the beans. They whole thing is then cooked in the smoker. The meat gives it a wonderful boost of flavor and texture.

If you are going to make chili with it this may be a good time to use beans as well, maybe even some corn masa dumplings. You don't want the dry meat to be the focus, but a nice smoky/meaty part of a bigger picture.

A friend of mine makes a "beef salad sandwich" in the same way you'd make tuna salad or chicken salad - mayo plus whatever seasonings you'd like to use, such as pickle relish and/or olives, etc., with or without chopped hard boiled eggs.

Just a thought.

Why didn't I think of that? I do beans in the smoker often but I've never thought of adding leftover BBQ meat, I always use bacon. I'll have to remember that one.

i use wolfgang puck's dough recipe

i like to use a cheese topping of aged cheddar and smoked gouda

chop up the brisket and sprinkle on top'

salt and pepper

drizzle with olive oil that has been flavored with several crushed garlic cloves

you can make a pizza out of ANY left overs with that cheese base and the garlic oil and it will taste great.
