When I think of grilling, I can’t help but think of the flavor of smoking. In the past, smoking meats was a way of preserving. Now, it is more about taste and texture. Brisket is a prime example of this; it needs extra love and care…long and low. Smoking adds tons of flavor and actually tenderizes this meat in the process. Our smoked beef brisket is the main item requested at all of our BBQs and has been really popular for weddings. Throw in BBQ chicken, hearty baked beans, potato salad, Coleslaw, corn muffins and strawberry shortcake and you are good to go! YUMMMMMM
While preparing dinner on Sunday for Father’s Day I decided to have Smoked Deviled Eggs as an appetizer. I mean, really, what screams BBQ better than deviled eggs?! OMG, how good were they! Chuck and I have a small smoker in our backyard next to our grill, and we at CVC Catering Group have a large one that can handle 75 to 100 pounds of brisket! The good news is you do not need a special smoker or a smoke gun (though these are fun tools) to smoke your food. You can use your own charcoal grill! So, why don’t you get into the swing and prepare these eggs and Chuck’s Smoked Brisket along with your BBQ favorites…you will be in BBQ heaven!
