Texas Brisket Made Easy: A Downloadable Deep Dive

Texas Brisket Made Easy deep dive e-book cover

Here’s everything you’ll need to climb the Mt. Everest of barbecue.

Beef brisket, Texas-style, is the Mt. Everest of barbecue. It is the most challenging of all meats. But, if you let us be your sherpa, we can get you to the top.

If you’ve ever wanted to create a smoked brisket at home just as good, if not better, than they do at Texas’ best BBQ joints then this BBQ beef brisket Deep Dive Guide is for you!

Like a Clint Eastwood cowboy, brisket is unforgiving. Cooking it wrong can result in meat as tough as a wrangler’s leather chaps.

You just need a good recipe loaded with proven techniques and useful tips. In this book, you’ll find everything you need to cook a tender barbecue brisket, including how to season it, how long to smoke it, how to slice it, and everything in between. Like the sign says outside of House Park Bar-B-Que in Austin, “Need No Teef To Eat My Beef!”

In these pages, I share everything I have learned over the years about making great brisket. So pull up a chair, preferably near the fire, and settle in for a deep dive into what goes into a truly exceptional meal.


Deep Dive Guides is the ebook imprimatur of Meathead’s AmazingRibs.com. It is a growing series of ebooks in which we have attempted to share our breadth and depth of experience on a variety of culinary topics. They are designed to give you an inexpensive deep dive into a topic so you come away knowledgeable and confident. They contain numerous links to pages on the internet and videos for more info. You will enjoy this book best if you read it while you are connected to the internet.

Some of this content is scattered among the 2,000+ pages on Meathead’s AmazingRibs.com. Although websites are great references, they are not great learning environments, not nearly as good as books. We think that binding together carefully edited articles in an organized flow from start to finish in book format, is a far better way to learn than from articles scattered around on a website.

Some of this info appears in other Deep Dive guides because we think that it is important that they all contain foundational info on such things as meat science, safety, tools, etc. So we have included the most important info within these pages and written new, previously unpublished, related info. Enjoy!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Members of the AmazingRibs.com Pitmaster Club get all our Deep Dive Guides for free and if you buy one of our rubs or sauce, you can download one for free.
