Burnt ends might be my favorite single bite of food in this whole world. Burnt ends are not burnt and they are also not the ends of anything, so it’s a funny name if you ask me. Burnt ends are made from the point of the brisket and they are little moist tender cubes of amazingness. Sometimes referred to as “Beef Dice” because of their shape, anytime you are eating them you should feel lucky because they take a long time to prepare right and if they are done right, they are buttery and amazing.
I have cooked many briskets and always happy with the results, this time I wanted to do something different, I’ve made corned beef previously but never Montreal Smoked Meat. I always enjoy getting one of these sandwiches whenever I visit Montreal and wanted to see how close I could come to duplicating it. Here is the recipe for my first attempt at Montreal Smoked Meat. I must say that the time and effort you put in will result in a satisfying product you can be proud of and share with family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised on the taste, tenderness and fabulous aroma this meat has. I hope you give it a try.
I was asked to help my favorite local Indian restaurant to finalize a recipe for Smoked Tandoori Brisket. I thought it would be a fun experiment, so I agreed. I dropped off a brisket at the restaurant and they marinated it in a secret mixture of tandoori seasonings for 3 days. After that I picked it up and smoked it over charcoal pellets for nearly 10 hours. What we were left with was an amazingly rich and spicy brisket that was oh so flavorful and melt in your mouth. The tik Tok got over 30,000 views in the first day. The things I learned in the comments section of Tik Tok. Hindu’s do not eat beef but lots of other Indians (Sikh, Punjabi, Muslim, Christians) do in fact eat beef (sometimes). I should not call it “East Indian” cuisine because there is only 1 India, it is just called “Indian cuisine”. I apparently also need to work on my Canadian accent version of how you pronounce “Tandoori”.
I recently finished watching the Masterclass by Aaron Franklin. In that class there are 3 parts devoted to what he called the king of the meats: Brisket. In my opinion it’s the main reason to take the class, to master his approach to cooking brisket Texas style with nothing but Post Oak, Salt, Pepper and Smoke. It’s a pretty simple process but it takes practise to perfect. After watching the masterclass I went ahead and created one of these masterpieces for myself and it was not a disappointment. A nice change from all the competition style briskets I’ve done in the past 5 years. If I’m ever cooking for a crowd, this is the way I would definitely go.
